Thanksgiving Burgers Are the Latest Holiday Trend

Posted: Updated:

The Thanksgiving Burger is everywhere. It's become a thing. If you haven't seen it at your local burger place by now, then they're either behind in the times, or are in the process of making one. Spectacular Turkey Day burgers have many different factors, like the house-made ingredients and always, and of course, the turkey patties. The one thing they all have in common; a ton of stuff piled on top. So whatever your pleasure, I assure you, you'll find it. This fatty-tastic food has spread across the country, and it's time to give your verdict. Here are a few I've found on my Turkey journey. Would you try one?
