These were tasty! After reading the reviews, I added an egg to help it hold together - I didn't have any problems, they turned out beautifully. I used 99% fat free ground turkey, which is pretty bland, so I think some cumin would have been nice. For ZWT7 silverados

I liked these burgers, but DH did not care for them as much. I followed the directions as posted. We had trouble keeping them together as they cooked in the pan. I added some fontinella cheese for extra flavor. Thanks!

I left out the peppers (forgot them) and the hot sauce (didn't have any). I think I'll try them again with the hot sauce cause I found them a bit bland. A great lower calorie option for the BBQ than beef burgers!
