Tasty Turkey Burgers

These burgers really live up to their name - they are TASTY. We had them for dinner Sunday night and they are delicious.  I love a good turkey burger, but I think that even folks who are a little wary of turkey would like this.  It will definitely be a regular on our grilling/burger rotation.

Tasty Turkey Burgers
Recipe from Southern Living
1 pound ground turkey
½ cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
1 large egg, beaten
¼ cup finely chopped green bell pepper

4 hamburger buns

Combine first 7 ingredients. Shape mixture into 4 equal-size patties.
Grill, covered with grill lid, over medium-high heat (350° to 400°) 5 to 6 minutes on each side or until no longer pink in center, basting each side occasionally with Fresh Herb Marinade. Grill buns, cut sides down, 2 minutes or until toasted. Serve burgers on buns with desired toppings.

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 ½ tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
