What makes these turkey burgers special?

These turkey burgers are special and a bit unique because they have zucchini included in the burger patty. It makes them super juicy and delicious without adding much in the way of flavor.

Zucchini is great for bulking up recipes in terms of actual bulk but also in terms of added nutrients and such. Zucchini doesn’t have a very strong flavor on its own, it will soak up the flavors of everything around it to make the recipe all that much more flavorful.

The added zucchini also adds bulk to the recipe without any added points.

How do I keep my turkey burgers from falling apart?

These turkey burgers stay together pretty well thanks to the zucchini and other ingredients. If you find that they really don’t hold together you can always try adding some breadcrumbs.

If you plan to do that you will need to recalculate the points tho since they’re calculated without any breadcrumbs.

You should also make sure that you give the zucchini time to express extra water. You can blot it dry on a paper towel or clean dish towel to make sure it’s thoroughly dry before you include it in your burgers.

Keeping the zucchini dry will make sure that it doesn’t add unnecessary liquid to the burgers which will make it hard to keep the burgers together.

What goes good on turkey burgers?

For these tasty Weight Watcher turkey burgers you could include things like tomato slices, lettuce, onions, etc without worrying about extra points. You can include sugar free condiments as well without worrying too much about points.

If you add things like mayo or BBQ sauce you’ll want to make sure that you track them based on the amount and brand that you use!

Are turkey burgers healthier than beef burgers?

The important distinction here is that you use high quality lean turkey in order to make them healthier than an all beef burger patty. In this case, we will be using 99% lean ground turkey burgers. You can also use your own turkey breasts to grind up for the burger meat.

Use the best and freshest available turkey meat so that you can be sure that your Weight Watcher turkey burgers are as healthy as possible!
