Love this recipe. Only gave 3 stars because it calls for WAY too much salt. As an avid turkey lover, it's basically the only meat I will buy, salt is necessary... But when we sat down to eat dinner after I had slaved in the kitchen we couldn't hardly eat them as they were too salty. I'd seriously only recommend 1/2 tablespoon instead of 2. Maybe it was a typo? I don't know but, I hope others see this before they ruin their delicious turkey burgers!
This was the most awesome recipe. The apples and veggies made the burgers moist enough to cook on our charcoal grill and still be juicy. The chutney gave them a hint of sweetness that we loved. For a special treat, I served them on Hawaiian buns with honey mustard dressing. They were a big hit with teens.
A friend has made this recipe for me several times and I don't understand what all the excitement is about. Lots of interesting ingredients but they don't do anything special together.
My husband loved it! I seasoned the grated apples with onion and left the scallions out; I also left out celery and added celery salt. I also nixed the chutney because I don't know what that is. The kids sense something was "Different", but they ate it up when they tasted it! Success!
Interesting. I have never made turkey burgers before and neither of us hated or loved it.
I also reduced the amount of salt and pepper and omitted the lemon; and shredded the apple in my food processor. Other than that, made as directed. Marvelous! I will definitely be making these again.
Really wonderful. We never eat turkey and we were both thoroughly impressed! I cut the recipe down a little since there are only 2 of us. I also looked everywhere for the chutney with no success. Instead I used tamarind chutney sauce ("Raj Masala"). I took the advice of grating the apple. Served with grated asiago, spinach, red onion, avocado and mayo. YUM!
Very tasty and different!
I agree with a previous poster that it's all about the side chutney. Next time I make it, I'll grate the apples as someone suggested. I didn't like biting into the chunks of apples, though I recognized the flavor the apples added so don't leave them out! I ate first without any chutney, was like, "this is good". It become 4 star for me with a side of chutney.
I made these only because I wanted something healthier for my family. I'm not a big fan of meat AND turkey rates at the bottom (just above organ meat). Sooooo I was hesitant when I sat down, but everyone was ooohhing and aaahhhing about the burgers. We (ok - I) was VERY pleasantly surprised by the flavor, texture and juiciness of these burgers. I left out the pepper sauce and decreased the salt and pepper due to wimpy kids but added a few shakes of liquid smoke. I will make these again when the carnivores request a burger. Thanks for posting!
