To prepare the herbed turkey burger:

1. Combine all ingredients into a stainless steel bowl and blend well. Do not overwork. Refrigerate overnight for easier patty formation.

2. Form patties from the mixture and place on a tray in the freezer to firm up.

3. Grill the patties (over medium-high heat) for approximately 12 minutes or until an internal temperature of 165℉ is reached. Turn only once.

4. Use the cooked patty in your favorite burger build. Consider a toasted oat-crusted bun with lettuce, tomato, Havarti cheese and Cranberry Ketchup.
