Homemade Turkey Burger

I’ve used ground turkey breast recently to replace beef in chilli burgers. And, I have to say, it hasn’t been as bad as I thought it would be. It hasn’t been bad at all. The homemade turkey burger I made the other day for lunch was quite tasty once I got used to it.

Unlike my lying liar of a waiter from seven years ago, I will never try to convince anyone that a turkey burger tastes just like a regular burger. The homemade turkey burger I made the other day tasted like a differently textured turkey breast, and it was good.
