This is a great burger. Really moist. Make sure you cut the celery really thin. The burgers are great on there own.
Awful! I am sorry to have spent the money to purchase the Major Grey's chutney and the chipotle tobasco. This is spicy which is fine - but the taste combo is disgusting. Spicy, sweet, salty and very fake tasting. I fried one burger and threw out the rest. Thank goodness I cut the recipe down since I had only 1.3 pounds of turkey.
We have made these several times. They are delicious. The only thing we do differently is leave off the chutney (don't usually have on hand) added garlic (LOVE GARLIC) and only made 4 oz burgers (couldn't even begin to eat 8oz) These are a delicious alternative to beef (which we RARELY eat). Thanks for posting.... now I don't need to do a google search everytime I want to make these. Thanks again!
