Turkey Veggie Burgers

turkey veggie burgers 1

Turkey burgers have always been one of my favorite easy meals.  I was intrigued by this version with zucchini and carrot added in the mix – you can’t go wrong with just a few more veggies in the dinner.  And they did not disappoint – super moist and flavorful. 

These were likely the very last item I cooked on our grill for the season – winter is way too cold around here to stand outside cooking.  Luckily I enjoy cooking on a grill pan in the wintertime – so I can still enjoy grilled foods all year long.  Even better since I got 8 burgers out of this recipe and have a bunch in the freezer for a quick dinner.  Enjoy!
