    Pretty good, but could use more seasoning. I added an extra 1/4 t. salt and could have used more. Ground pepper wouldn't hurt either. The texture of the patties was very soft and need to be handled carefully to make sure they don't fall apart, so I cooked in a skillet instead of grilled.

    I usually have trouble getting my beef loving husband to eat turkey meat but he ate this without saying anything. The burgers were moist and had a nice flavor. Thanks Kana Kahuna. Bullwinkle

    I'm not going to rate this because I'm not sure if I did something wrong. I followed this recipe exactly as written, but when I flipped the patties they started falling apart. I was able to push them back together and when topped with the cheese slice, they held together much better. Even though the patties were thoroughly cooked, we found the texture to be somewhat mushy which I think was caused by the BBQ sauce being mixed into the meat.

    Very good. I wasn't able to do the cooking today, so DH made this for me. It was simple and quite tasty - not the dry tasting turkey burger we normally would have - but very moist and with lots of flavor. Thanks for posting!
