We really liked these burgers, especially me! They were a little too healthy for my one son though. ;) I used spaghetti sauce for the tomato sauce and chose fresh basil. I had mine on a multigrain skinny bun and used the dijon, tomato and some lettuce. Made for Went to the Market tag game. Thanks Annacia! :)

Doubled the recipe which worked out great! I added a few of our other favorite Hamburger seasonings in along with the herbs (a drizzle of Worcestershire sauce, Magic Seasoning) and used a whole can of Tomato Sauce instead of the 2/3 of a can doubling the recipe uses. We all thought they were delicious, and the best part? Ground Turkey was on sale so it didn't cost us any extra to cut out some of the hamburger!

Wow! These burgers have wonderful flavor! Made as directed (dried seasonings) but pan fried them as the weather did not permit outdoor grilling. Awesome recipe, thanks for sharing! :)
