MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 27, 2014

I made this last night. They were the best turkey burgers from ToH I have made. I followed the advise of others and used a whole egg. I broiled them in the oven and served them between 2 bagels. I did leave out the cranberries as my hubby would not be a fan of it. Yum They were super easy too.

On a diet, so this is timely. Used shredded sharp cheddar instead. Tasted great. I made a big mac sauce and put on white bread.

Even my husband, initially dubious (to put it nicely), liked these. They don't pretend to be hamburgers so one doesn't feel disappointed. It is just an excellent sandwich you never tasted before!

Excellent! Like the other reviewers I also used 1 beaten egg. I also chose the dried cranberries. The cranberries gave it just the right tang. I also added thinly sliced cucumbers and red onion & topped it off with a bit more Feta. Can't say it enough. Fantastic!!!

I made this recipe for two. I used a real egg and dries cherries. It was very good.
