Bacon Turkey Cheeseburgers

My family LOVES turkey burgers! Did you know turkey is healthful? Not only does turkey have more protein than beef, it has fewer calories than chicken and less fat than pork. It is about 58-76% less fat than ground beef!! Turkey can be a flavorful alternative to other proteins and offer all of the BBQ favorites – brats, burgers, tenderloins, and more!

There is a new line of turkey burgers! They have 6 varieties to choose from, including Savory Seasoned, Ready to Season, Cheddar Jalapeno, and Swiss, Bacon & Onion. They taste great hot out of the skillet or off the grill.

Last week, I picked up some Honeysuckle White ground turkey. When I got home and was trying to figure out what to make, I decided burgers were the way to go. Not only did my entire family go crazy over these, but my picky three year old son asked me to make them again that week!!
