Fantastic! I very rarely review recipes (in fact, this might be my first), but I have to give this recipe huge credit for having a high reality:expectation ratio. I honestly wasn't expecting much from a turkey burger, despite the raving reviews, so I had pretty low expectations going into this. I was expecting a pretty bland burger that dried out easily on the grill. To my surprise, these ended up being very flavorful and about the most moist burgers I've had in a long time. The turkey I ended up with was likely a blend of dark and white meat, so pure ground breast may be more dry. For comparison, I usually use 85/15 beef, mixed with 1 egg/pound, and seasoned appropriately. That said, I made these very close to the recipe, except that I substituted crushed Club crackers in place of the cheese (on the recommendation of another person that felt the cheese made them too soft for grilling); the substitution worked out great, but these would have been even better with the cheese included. I also grilled them over low / medium-low heat for about 10-12 min, flipping at the half way mark. For the record, they held up as well as beef. Where the turkey was cheaper, maybe a tad more healthy, and just as juicy as 85/15 beef, I may be doing these going forward in place of beef burgers. That's says a lot, coming from a red meat fan who doesn't usually care for poultry!
Excellent! I tried in a pinch because I was lacking an ingredient for my usual Turkey burger recipe. I looked all through my other cookbooks and other internet recipes and finally settled on this! Will definitely do again. Easy also.
These were amazingly good. Even my suspicious husband thought they were delish. I used a whole 20.8 package of turkey breast, added 1 teaspoon of olive oil to the mixture and sprayed the patties with olive oil spray in addition to spraying the pan. Other than that, I followed the recipe. I should have started them on medium-low as they started to burn a little bit. They taste just as satisfying as a real burger. When I find ground turkey breast on sale, I am going to make up a bunch of these and freeze them. Thanks so much for sharing a really good recipe.
OH MY GOD-- this was the best turkey burger ever! Next time I'll add in some cayenne too and try with other ground meats. Super good, highly flavorful.
Amazing turkey recipe! super moist and delicious. will be making again.
This was everything I like in an everyday recipe: common ingredients, simple to make and delicious results. I didn't have enough cheese to both top the patties and put in the mix. Knowing the family would be more satisfied with SEEing the cheese, I omitted the cheese during the flavoring stage. I cooked the patties on a Foreman grill and they were delicious!
On our journey to quit red meat this was our savior. I made this exactly as is and it was a hit with my family. I also play with the recipe. I juggle with the onions and cheese. I never change the other ingredients but I will add a seasoning for a more spicy burger. Just a wonderful burger.
My new go to Turkey Burger recipe! What a delicious meld of flavor! I didn't have Monterrey Jack so I used sharp cheddar and it was super tasty. The whole family loves this recipe!
So delicious! Everybody absolutely raves about these. I eliminate the cheese and add bread crumbs because otherwise they are a bit too soft for grilling. I've used onion when I don't have scallions and they are equally good. I also freeze the patties for a little while before cooking so that they are easier to handle. You really can't go wrong with these--great as sliders too--serve on little potato rolls--yum!!
I haven't eaten a turkey burger in a very long time, but decided we need to cut back on fat and calories. After making these tonight, I may never eat a beef burger again! These were delicious! They were moist and so full of flavor! Thank you for posting this great recipe!
