There’s no better time to invite friends over and fire up the grill than summer. (Or if you’re like me, gather your friends inside your air-conditioned apartment while you fire up the stove.) No need to reach for the burgers or brats, though; these turkey burgers prove that you don’t need red meat to enjoy yourself at a barbecue. Throw in some ginger zest into the patty, and add a nice spread of Sriracha mayo to your toasted bun in order to maximize satisfaction and minimize post-barbecue belly aches.
