"Very tasty! My husband gave it two thumbs up!"

"Delicious! I crushed croutons for the bread crumbs since I didn't have any on hand. Used pinot grigio chardonnay as the wine. The burgers are huge, so you could easily make into 8 patties instead of 6 to stretch it out. This is a keeper - big hit with my family!"

"I'm a huge fan of turkey burgers, and this is one of the best I've tried. I did use all turkey, no chicken, and I used a Chenin Blanc for the wine. I think the wine is key. So yummy, and so healthy with all that spinach!"
