If you’re looking to grill some burgers this weekend, try turkey burgers as an alterative to beef. This recipe has south-of-the-border flavors with cumin, herbs, garlic, avocado and tomato on whole grain buns. Add ancho chili mayonnaise instead of the usual mustard or ketchup for one great burger.
Although traditional beef burgers may be an American institution, I don’t enjoy them because I’m not a beef-eater. Now a turkey burger is a different thing. Those I enjoy, but there are a few things to understand when buying ground turkey.
When purchasing ground turkey, there are multiple options at the store. The amount of fat in ground turkey varies depending on what goes into the grinder, and fat content controls the flavor and moisture of your burger. You need to read the labels and ask questions if purchasing from a butcher counter.
