Spicy Turkey Burgers

Meal prep is essential in my life, but I also get bored with meals super easily. Because of this I am constantly looking for ways to shake up my meal prep each Sunday or Monday. These spicy turkey burgers were perfect for just that. I made a batch on a Monday and had them all week for salads, sandwiches and lettuce wraps.
