    WiGal's Note:

    For lighter grilling try this spicy burger which freezes well. This came from Cooking Light. I always have leftover Italian turkey sausage after making a batch of these for my freezer, so I use the leftover sausage to make Grilled Italian Sausage Veggies in Foil.

      Used regular sausage, a mild Italian and honey garlic mixture. We added garlic since we're big garlic lovers here. Love the addition of fennel, but they didn't have the bite that homemade burgers usually have. Found the regular sausage very fatty so will look harder for the turkey sausage next time and add some more spices.

      Great taste! Went to 3 different Italian markets and my regular big box grocery store but couldn't find "turkey" sausage or "ground' fennel so substituted Italian sausage and ground the seeds on my own. Pain in the rear, but an excellent meal!
