Pear n' Sage Turkey Burgers with Orange Yogurt Spread

by Amie on August 18, 2009

Gotta love the fiber in the fresh pears and flax seed, as well as the antioxidants in the orange and sage…these tasty turkey burgers pair perfectly with my yummy yogurt spread. The addition of freshly squeezed juice from an orange adds a juicy touch to the burgers while the zest adds a sweet touch to the yogurt spread.
