Bonus turkey burger nutrition facts: Turkey is a great, low-fat protein source and is rich in vitamin B6, ideal for your balanced healthy diet. Adding a grated carrot kicks up the nutrients by adding beta carotene and fiber. Be sure to buy ground turkey breast, without skin, for the leanest burger.
