Confession time – I’m not the biggest fan of ground turkey… But this Oven Baked Turkey Zucchini Burgers Recipe is different!

I mean I rarely even buy turkey. I only have it around the holidays. I don’t het sliced turkey lunch meat… But the best part about this Oven Baked Turkey Zucchini Burgers Recipe is that these patties could be made with ground chicken. The result – still juicy, but with chicken flavor, instead of turkey. Feel free to use ground chicken breast instead.

The reason why I got ground turkey is because I was experimenting with some baby food recipes a few months back. My son seems to love turkey and meat in general.

Now when I think of turkey, I only have one turkey recipe on the blog and it is this Juicy Dry Brined Turkey.

Having left over organic ground turkey breast and zucchini (always) in the fridge, I knew what I was going to make. Zucchini burgers it is. The best part – as most of my recent recipes, these Oven Baked Turkey Zucchini Burgers are kid friendly. They actually are a great way to make everyone at home eat their veggies. Perfect for parties, too.

The addition of zucchini lowers the calories, but does not sacrifice taste and flavor.

Interested in meal prep? These will make a great addition to your lunch box. They reheat beautifully.

Burgers made with leaner meats like chicken or turkey breast can easily dry out and overcook, but the use of grated zucchini and soaked bread in these, makes the recipe foolproof.
