"This is my kind of recipe! Easy and tasty! I used ground turkey and Worcestershire Pub burger seasoning instead of the ground beef and salt and pepper."

"This was a very simple, yet flavorful recipe. This is now my go-to recipe for doing burgers on the grill. They held together very well and everyone was able to customize their burger just the way they liked it."
