Very few people can resist a good burger, so I'm not surprised this meal made it to your favorites list. We boost the taste of these turkey burgers with chopped sundried tomatoes and some mint. Since it's summer, we're going to switch our oven directions out for a grill pan.

I think next time I would switch the turkey for lamb. They weren't bad, but I think I like ground turkey when it's in meatballs and spaghetti.

Turkey burger was surprisingly delicious. Made a few modifications - used rice flour, a yellow onion and 1 tsp garlic powder (instead of fresh). Great with melted provolone.

Yummy. I added about double the amount of mint. However, the 1.5 lbs of turkey got me about 7 very good sized burgers.
