  • These are good, but I substituted extra lean ground beef for the turkey. Other than that, awesome and so easy. - 7/5/11

  • They were pretty good, but they weren't my favorite (it may have just been that I'm not really used to ground turkey. I feel like it has an aftertaste). I'd really love to try this recipe with lean ground beef next time. - 5/7/11

  • This was great! Instead of using the cayenne pepper, I used some crushed red pepper. - 3/26/08

  • We made this with a soy based meatless sausage & burger roll. We only made 1/2 batch - not sure if we would like it. It is a great way to reduce the calories without sacrificing taste or texture! - 12/15/07
