Reviews for Bayou Burgers with Spicy Remoulade
"This was a very moist, spicy burger! The adults in our family loved it, but the kids found it too spicy. We used ground pork instead of turkey, and they were delicious. I shared this recipe with my cooking co-op and we made huge batches to freeze. They froze well and were easy to finish up (just don't freeze the sauce). We made 8 smaller burgers out of one recipe and served them on whole wheat hamburger buns to cut back on calories. Delicious!"
"Although I am not a fan of the plain Turkey burger, this recipe was delicious and will be made again. To save on the calories, I skipped the buttered kaiser rolls and opted for toasted whitewheat hamburg buns. This recipe does make 8 smaller size burgers to fit the buns."
