I make these and double the recipe. I wrap each burger and lay on a cookie sheet till frozen then bag, they keep in the freezer about 3 months. It's a great recipe for when ground chicken or turkey is on sale.

Wow, this was one of the best turkey burgers I have tasted! I used 7% fat ground turkey, Panko breadcrumbs, 4 tsp. dried parsley flakes, about 1/2 tsp. salt and several cranks of fresh ground pepper. The patties were VERY soft, as one reviwer said (probably because of the applesauce), but they still stayed together, so I rolled with it. ;) Plus, the applesauce really helped them to be so moist and flavorful. Five minutes per side was perfect for me, on my stovetop grill pan. I put these on Hamburger Buns, and served them with Grilled Zucchini. Thanks for a keeper!

Wow I realized you posted the recipe nine years ago. The store was out of chicken burgers so I bought ground chicken instead. Looked on the Food website at probably 50 recipes and yours stood out. Made at written and cooked them on the grill. The outside was a little crispy and the inside was nice and juicy. Perfect! So healthy and had great flavor. Put lettuce tomato and BBQ sauce on them. I am never buying chicken burgers again, I will make my own!
