Italian Turkey Burgers

These burgers are as versatile as they are delicious, 'grammable, and filled with Zero Points® ingredients. If basil isn't your thing, swap it out for crisp arugula, and try rubbing the freshly grilled bread with a clove of garlic for extra flavor. Whatever you do, remember to always cook the burgers to an internal temperature of 165ºF . . . and enjoy!
