      I too made these with ground turkey and they were delicious!!! These are exceptionally good if you use ground sirloin with sundried tomato pesto also. I served mine on the new multi-grain flatbreads with leaf lettuce and tomato. Yummy.

      These were great! I used extra lean ground turkey but followed everything else as written. The recipe calls for 1/4 cup of pesto and the instructions ask for an additional 1/4 of a cup pesto? I used a total of 1/2 cup. It was delicious so I think that I made it right. I made these into sandwiches and added sliced provolone and tomatoes to it. It was a mouth full! :) Thanks so much for posting!!
