When mushrooms are cool, transfer to a large bowl and add turkey, parsley, and soaked bread crumb. With clean hands, mix ingredients together thoroughly. Form four individual patties about 3/4 inch thick. Season on both sides w/salt and pepper.
Grill or cook on stovetop griddle or grill pan until they are nicely browned and still look juicy. About 4-5 minutes per side.
