These burgers work great on the stove because they are so moist that a frying pan can keep everything together without falling through the grill of a barbecue. Plus, they are designed to be thin, so they cook quickly and evenly without burning or drying out in any spots.

Serve turkey burgers with cheese, lettuce, tomato, and red onion. You could even just wrapped in a lettuce leave if you are looking to lighten up your meal even more.
