The BEST ever Turkey Burger and Homemade BBQ Sauce

Hey friends! It’s Jen from Yummy Healthy Easy here again… Raise your hand if you love a big, juicy burger! I do, I do! There’s nothing I like better than a grilled burger.

But honestly, I’m not a grill master. I usually make my husband do the grilling. Well, last week my husband was working late and I had the most massive craving for a turkey burger. So I put on my big girl pants, stepped up to our grill and grilled up this bad boy. Doesn’t he look delish?! He has a savory homemade BBQ sauce tucked inside and slathered all over the top. He’s moist, juicy and best of all, easy to make.

Even though summer’s just about over, the weather is still nice outside! Don’t put your grill away just yet! Give this burger a chance, you won’t be disappointed! 🙂

Turkey Burger Ingredients:
