Expert Tips

To broil patties, place on broiler pan; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times above as a guide, turning once. Place buns, cut side up, on broiler pan; broil 1 to 2 minutes.

Whipped cream cheese is regular cream cheese that has been mixed until it’s soft, smooth and light. Unlike regular cream cheese, which is stiff, whipped cream cheese is easy to spread and to mix into recipes.

Ground beef or pork can be used in place of the ground turkey in these burgers.

To make a quick dip for chips and veggies, stir the remaining salad dressing mix into 1 cup of sour cream.
