Spicy Turkey Burgers
Burgers and summertime go hand in hand- don’t you agree? It’s all American! I love this healthy turkey burger recipe and I think you will too! It is so flavorful with the jalapenos, shallots, garlic, red peppers and all the fresh herbs! This turkey burger is ANYTHING but bland!
These burgers are awesome with Oven Baked Sweet Potato fries – one of our clean-eating favorite meals!!
