    Okay so the last time I had ground turkey was sometime in the 90s, and it wasn't a pleasant memory. This is awesome, it tasted so good. My husband and I as we ate it, said it put our weekend splurge of a Wendy's cheeseburger to shame. - 1/12/09

    The burgers are delicious. The nutritional breakdown doesn't include the ranch dressing. Here's the numbers for this:

    Bit of a variation, I use maybe 1/3 of the ranch packet so I can use ranch as a condiment later. Also don't mix cheese in, I sprinkle on top after. I also don't use green onion. Occasionally do mix an egg in though to help with moisture, and on our George Foreman Grill these are delish! - 9/28/10

    These tasted alright. but since the buns and ranch are not included in the nutritional info. It's pretty misleading betime you actually make it a "burger". - 3/10/10

    I didn't realize I had left out the ranch. It is now added into the nutritional value. I chose to leave out the bun because everyone uses different ones. However, the whole wheat bun I use is only 80 calories.

    LOVED THEM!! My husband says I can make them any time. They're so easy!! After having read some reviews that they were salty, I used the 0.4oz packet of dry ranch instead of the full oz. Still had great flavor! I added a little garlic powder to compensate and I put cheese on top instead of inside. - 8/25/10

    I made these last night for dinner and they were pretty good. We didn't like the cheese in them because it just cooked out when we grilled them. Going to give them one more shot and melt the cheese on the burger instead of inside. - 11/18/10

    My husband originally turned up his nose at this but after the first bite he said he could not believe how good they were. I prefer these pan cooked instead of on the grill because they were more moist. I even like these heated up the next day for lunch. Try on an Arnold Selct Sandwich Thin- yum! - 10/25/10

    Made these and froze them for my husband while away. He raved about them! I used ground chicken breast instead of the turkey as I think it's moister and added 1 egg ( to a doubled recipe) to make it easier to blend. Just made them again and got 12 burgers to 2 lbs. of ground chicken. These are a ". - 8/1/10

    This was my first time having turkey burgers and OH MY GOSH it was awesome!

  • The burgers fell apart and made a mess out of my grill. Maybe if there was less cheese in them they would stick together better. They sounded yummy so I disappointed. Plus when you put them on a bun they are more calories. - 7/30/14

  • I made this recipe with a low sodium packet of ranch. I didnt find it to be too salty as others have mentioned. I did not put the cheese in the burger but sauted onions and mushrooms and placed on the burger with a slice of cheddar on top. It was good, my 16yr old daughter loved it. - 4/3/14

  • These are pretty good- definitely better than your run of the mill turkey-burger! They're full of flavor, but also, if made exactly as per the recipe, REALLY salty, even for a salt addict like me. Next time I'll either cut back on the ranch mix, or make my own seasoning. - 2/28/14

We topped with a little ketchup, tomato, lettuce, and onion. I used a 80 calorie wheat bun. May try grilling next time and just putting cheese on top. - 8/21/13

  • I have a question. Some cook a 20 oz. package of ground turkey and think it is a pound. Did you use a 16 oz. or 20 oz. package ? I have not seen a 16 oz. package of ground turkey in my area, only 20 oz.

  • This has quickly become my go-to 'I feel like a burger' dinner. They are moist and flavorful. With the cheddar in the burger it forms this 'fried cheese' flavored crust. AMAZING!
