Turkey Burgers With Flavor

“I haven't tried to cook with ground turkey for ten years. I never liked it before. Since it is so healthy and low in fat I tried to infuse the turkey with flavor and this recipe did the trick. The consistency is much improved too. If you like cilantro and mango flavors, you will love these delicious burgers. So easy to make and can be made a day ahead.”
