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.
