I bought Butterball frozen seasoned turkey burgers and they taste like cardboard! Help!

I purchased a package of Butterball frozen turkey burgers (preseasoned) and they are horrible. Absolutely AWFUL. I'm hoping the brilliant people on this message board can help me come up with a way to salvage the meat or something, since I can't bear the thought of throwing away food!

I have eaten two of the burgers. The first one I cooked on my Foreman grill, realized it was going to taste horrible, and tried to doctor up the cooked burger with some normal burger toppings like vidalia onions and ketchup. No dice. The second one, I cooked in a skillet and broke it up as it was cooking. I added some taco seasoning, tomatoes, and rice and made kind of a chili...ish. Still kind of gross. The texture is just... weird. Normally I like turkey burgers, so I'm pretty annoyed that I can't seem to find a way to make these edible.

Any suggestions? Would the texture be improved if I put them through the food processor and then made them into meatballs/meatloaf?

Thanks so much in advance!
