Review: Tired of the endless cycle of burgers and hot dogs on the grill, I picked up a box of Wampler's frozen turkey burgers in spite of my reservations about the taste of ground turkey. I found myself pleasantly surprised by the one-quarter pound burgers - which stay just about that size because the meat has so little fat. The burgers grilled up fast and remained moist. Pan-fried with a little bit of water, they were equally tender. Toppings are endless since the meat lends itself to burger standbys and a variety of more gourmet accompaniments. The meat is a little grayer than beef, which can be a bit off-putting. But health-conscious individuals and people who just like good meat will be too busy eating to notice.
