These were very tasty! We enjoyed the unusual flavor, and I think I'll make these again. I used green onions instead of scallops (I'm never sure...are those the same thing??). I served with your Easy Tzatiziki sauce and was very impressed with the myriad of flavor.
These were so moist and flavourful! I couldn't find any ground turkey, so I used 1 pound of ground chicken. I kept all other measurements and ingredients the same and got 4 fantastic burgers. I made a traditional tzatziki sauce and served on the side. Yummy!!! Thanks Redsie!
Made these for dinner tonight and they were FABULOUS!! I made the recipe just as directed, which was very easy. They were moist and just FULL of flavor. YUM! I didn't have the ingredients for the Tzatziki sauce, though. Will have to try that next time. We just put some light mayo and lettuce on the toasted buns. Thanks for posting!
