    I made this recipe "Lebanese" by adding spices that my Mother-in-law puts in her Cabbage Rolls... Allspice, Cinnamon, Paprika, Cumin and Pine Nuts. Served over rice. Oh, add more chopped tomatoes and tomato paste so there is more sauce. My Lebanese husband LOVED it. - 8/5/08

    I added 1/2 can tomato paste, 1 tsp ground fennel and few dashes of red cayenne pepper.It was cooked thirty minutes longer(simmered) . Also a splash of fresh lemon juice kicked up the flavor. I served it on basmati rice. This is a keeper. - 7/8/08

    Thought original recipe was a little bland. So I added cinnamon, cumin, thyme, seasoning salt, and paprika. I also added a can of tomato paste and , butter beans,(rinsed) and veggie broth. It was very flavorful. I offered it with rice. But with the beans did not really need anything else.:)YUM! - 1/11/11

    I have long made a variation of this using bacon instead of turkey and I gotta say this way is so tasty! Made it as is, adding a little cumin and celery salt. Highly recommend this, its pretty easy too. - 11/1/10
