It's necessary to highly season turkey because the meat itself tastes rather mild. Yet, once ground turkey is cooked up, it's delicious. To do a taste test on the mixture, make a little patty the size of a silver dollar and pan-fry it in a nonstick skillet. This way you can adjust your seasonings to taste. A mayonnaise-type dressing and avacado make perfect toppings.
