This recipe makes some fantastic turkey burgers! Now, you can easily make your own teriyaki sauce for the recipe, but if you don't have the time store bought will do as a substitute. This is perfect for the meat-lover that is looking for a lighter burger. Salty and sweet teriyaki sauce lends the leaner meat a fabulous complexity of flavor. Umami indeed.
