    Excellent! I made with ground chicken. Left out the wine and carrots because I didn't have them on hand, but added a handful of shredded part-skim mozzarella to the mix. Served with fresh spinach, yum! - 1/9/09

    These were good - I followed NEPAL1998's advice and served mine with feta over baby spinach. Hubby had his on a whole wheat bun w/spinach and spicy mustard. These would be good with a little feta added to the patty mixture. - 7/29/08

    These are amazing! I used 99% lean ground turkey for even fewer calories and it was still really delicious. I topped it with some baby spinach and low-fat mozzarella cheese for a healthy - and filling - burger! - 6/30/08

  • I have never even tried turkey burgers before, but since my whole family is now "sparked" I thought I would offer these at our cookout. This recipe is so easy, and the burgers were great. Nice flavor and very moist. Will definitely make again. - 5/24/09
