This was a really tasty burger! Next time I would add a few chilli flakes ( we are heat junkies!).Loved the fresh mozzarella. A good recipe,thanks for sharing.

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!

Deliciously spiced recipe. I followed the recipe until it came to forming them into patties. I thought this recipe would lend itself very nicely for meatball submarines. My husband loves meatball submarines, but the meatballs always seem to pop out of the bun. So I decided to form the meat mixture into a log, place them on sausage buns and finish with the sauce and cheese. Worked out perfectly. :)

These wre KILLER!!! LOVED the addition of fennel seed!! It just screams "Italian"!! :) I made nice big patties, and put the mozzarella on the inside, we really like it that way! And added fresh tomato slices and lettuce to boot! What a great burger!! Sorry my pics don't do it justice! It's really, really good!! :) Made for the ZWT4 :)

Made for Newest Zaat Tag March 2008. This is really good! DH and DS enjoyed this meal alot. I enjoyed that it was simple to make and tasted delicioso! Cooked this on my indoor grill, so the house smelled Italian :-), I did smother the patties after cooking with some leftover sauce, then added mozzarella on to that so it melted all over the patties. OH yummy! Served on homemade italian bread rolls and a green salad. My only suggestion is to have big rolls and and healthy appetite. It will fill you up.
