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!
Amazing! My husband doesn't eat turkey but he loved these
