Turn Leftover Turkey to Burgers

Turkey leftovers are not leftovers anymore because you can turn them to patties for your burgers. These burgers are great for kids as they are healthy and delightful. Get out of the habit of only eating beef patties because turkey ones are way yummier and leaner. Serve this with brown gravy and you have a satisfying and nutritious dinner.
