When I was first introduced to ground turkey I had a knee jerk reaction of DISGUSTING! “Why would anyone like ground up turkey?!” Well, let me tell you…. not only is it a healthy alternative to ground beef it’s really good especially if you cook it right!
I came up with the recipe for these burgers several years ago and it is a major hit around my house! I even fooled my father into thinking these were made with ground beef. See, my dad is very old school… he won’t even try most healthy alternatives like ground turkey, sushi, tofu (well, I can’t really blame him on tofu, I’m not a big fan either), etc. But, when I was taking care of him after his bypass (hence why he needs to eat healthier!) I snuck ground turkey into alot of meals without him knowing until I left and gave him a bunch of recipes with ground turkey.
1 lb ground turkey
2 TBS teriyaki sauce
1 cup shredded cheddar
