Periodically I buy her magazine and this recipe was in the burger issue. I did modify it a bit to suit preferences. If you prefer a more chunky texture for the dressing, you can just mix it by hand.

This will be my first time making turkey burgers. This recipe is in the running. I still want to check out some other recipes before I decide.

A fantastic change of pace that was truly delightful! After reading the other reviews, I did cut back on the poultry seasoning, as I didn't want it to be overpowering, and probably used about a teaspoon (I feel a little goes a long way). The turkey burger ended up very flavorful, with the bacon being a great addition. The truly outstanding part was the dressing, though! I had two small-ish Haas avocados that I used. The dressing came out so creamy and flavorful and was the star of the show that took these burgers over the top. Thankfully, it made a lot of dressing, which kept well in the refrigerator, and which I ended up using as a dip for tortilla chips (fabulous also). When serving the burgers, I added a slice of Muenster cheese (we are partial to cheeseburgers), which was a nice complement. I served this burgers on onion kaiser rolls. A wonderful, wonderful meal that I will enjoy often. Thanks for sharing!

This makes for a very tasty turkey burger! Turkey burgers can often be lacking in flavor, but not this one! I love the bacon bits and the poultry seasoning (although for personal preference, I might halve the amount of the seasoning next time. I like the flavor, but would like a bit less.). The avocado sauce was so yummy and a great addition to this burger. I used a non-dairy sour cream with success. Thank you!
