My awesome parents just gifted Adam and I a gas grill for Christmas! Before that, our meals were grill-less which made backyard dinners and burger season in general quite uneventful. Oven-baked burgers have been my way of compensating and these healthy turkey burgers are definitely a favorite.
I love this recipe because they are such a healthy option for lean protein and it's an easy way of getting more greens in my diet. They are easily seasoned to your personal taste with ingredients like Italian salad dressing or Oregano and Basil. Also be sure to check out our favorite bread recipe here that is easily made into hamburger buns for a completely homemade plate of deliciousness!

Mix ingredients in a glass mixing bowl until completely combined. Use large spoonfuls to created burger shaped patties. Place in a parchment lined baking dish or large bar pan with sides. Bake in 375 oven for 15 minutes. Flip burgers and bake for another 5 or until done.
These are also super yummy when broken into pieces and used as salad topping.
