Reviews for Cranberry Turkey Burgers
"we love this recipe! The turkey stays moist and the combination of flavors are excellent ! I am making them for a party this afternoon and I know everyone will enjoy them as much as my family does!"
"An awesome burger and we don't even care for turkey burgers. SURPRISE, it was a hit."
"I can't believe how delicious these things are and how great my apartment smells since cooking them. I only had a pound of turkey, so I substituted turkey sausage for the other quarter-pound which worked very well. In place of the whole-berry cranberry sauce, I used some cranberry mustard on that side of the english muffin, but I'm sure the sauce tastes just as good. I cooked them on my George Foreman grill instead of an outdoor grill and again, that worked fine. I highly recommend these. They're like Thanksgiving on an english muffin."
