These moist burgers get plenty of color and flavor from onion, zucchini and red pepper. I often make the mixture ahead of time and put it in the refrigerator. Later, after helping my husband with farm chores, I can put the burgers on the grill while whipping up a salad or side dish. —Sandy Kitzmiller, Unityville, Pennsylvania

These were good! I doubled the recipe and froze the extras. Quick, healthy and easy. Great recipe!

These were moist and tasty. I subsituted half carrots for half of the amount of green peppers. Even if you're a vegetable eater this is a quick way to get your vegetables. I served them on flat out breads. I will definitely make these again.

Delicious, fragrant, family-pleasers, these burgers are extraordinary. 4 generations of family - including absurdly picky eaters, deathwish dieters and crabbly in-laws - all raved. Try it as written before 'improving' the recipe.

Good taste

Using ground turkey is something I plan on using more often. This is a fabulous recipe and my husband rated it highly. I did use a 1/2 cup of green onion instead of regular onion (it agrees more with my husband). I did make 3 burgers and made meatballs with the remainder.
