    KLHquilts's Note:

    "A juicy turkey burger with a hint of red bell peppers, garlic and onions, topped with with fresh spinach, ripe red tomatoes and alfalfa sprouts and drizzled with a special avocado-artichoke dressing. Served on two slices of toasted sourdough bread, it's a burger any Californian could groove on. And that ain't no jive!" (Submitted for the ZWT3 "Build-A-Burger" challenge by the Jivin' Jelly Rollers.)

      I'm not terribly fond of avacado so I didn't expect to like this as much as I did, but it was love at first bite! The turkey burger was moist and I loved the loads of garlic. I found myself piling on more dressing, it was so good! And the sourdough bread was a terrific choice. I totally forgot to write down the condiments on my grocery list so I just added some green leaf lettuce to the burger. Bravo for a great recipe! Made for ZWT3.

      Really flavoful. I prefer ground turkey breast anyway, so tend to sub it in place of beef when possible for a healthy alternative. That is the first part that drew me to this burger. I love the use of artichokes, red peppers and onions, sprouts and the cheeses too ( I used slightly more and a blend of both cheeses for the flavor). I agree with previous reviewers that the dressing makes a nice dip - especially with a corn chip. Nicely done JJ Rollers! ZWT3.

      I really enjoyed these! I will even admit it was my first time making turkey burgers, lol, DH was not sure about this whole thing, "A burger should be meat" I believe his words were. Well, he ate two of these so I guess they weren't too bad!! I did make a couple of substitutions. I used sour cream in place of the yogurt for the sauce and used a four cheese semolina for the bread. I really thought they came out wonderful. I cooked them on the grill, started them out on tin foil and then moved them to the grill racks. Thanks to you all, good luck with the ZWT!!
