  1. How many ounces is 1/2 cups of ground turkey? 12 ounces? Thanks, Sandy


  1. Lovely flavour, they tasted like turkey dinner! loved the cranberry sauce in them and on them. I used a whole egg and 1 lb of ground turkey and had to use dried sage. They held together very well for me and I cooked them on the grill. Used whole wheat buns, lettuce, tomato and cheese. Vergy good burger and I have two patties in the freezer for another day. Thanks for posting.
  2. Yum! These burgers are very tasty. The wonderful flavor of the sage definitely stands out. The cranberry flavor was much lighter than I expected, but it all went together very well. I have to admit that this was my second time attempting this recipe. The first time I added the egg white as directed. The patties were very mushy and ended up completely charred. This time I omitted the egg white, since it all seemed to be held together fine without it, and everything turned out great. This recipe is definitely a keeper if you like the flavor of fresh sage!


I live near Rochester NY with my husband and our 18-year-old cat, Fluffy. It's actually Fluffy's house, but he allows us to live here as long as we pamper him and feed him generously. Our daughter, Kree, whom some of you know from Zaar, is also living with us again while she begins a new business venture in real estate. She's the one who got me hooked on Zaar and taught me to try new recipes rather than stay in the cooking rut I was in. In my free time I like to take long rides or sit by the water, both of which I find very relaxing. I also like to do counted cross-stitch and read. I dabble in photography, always looking for that elusive 'perfect' shot. I did more cooking before I started working full-time, and plan to again when I retire (still years away, but dreaming).
