I like to call this one: The only turkey burger a vegan will eat. Fill a gluten free bun (I love Schar’s, it’s also dairy and egg free) with your favorite veggie patty. Stuff with all the fixin’s you love and make sure that lettuce sticks out to look like feathers. Create your turkey face and that’s it! Turkey burgers for everyone!
