    at first i was a little nervous about all the spices, so i left off the cheese. these are sooooo flavorful and delicious. will make these again and again. i love a real hamburger. that is one thing i miss, but this burger is so good. i don't think i will miss my "real" burgers at all anymore. thanks - 10/1/09

    WOW!!! Delicious & Filling!!! Will definately be adding this one to our favorites.
    BTW...the nutritional value is off...will need to figure the ground turkey, salsa, and others seprately....but is definately worth it.
