"Flavored with a little of wine, these moist patties taste like they came from an artsy restaurant," promises Hutchinson, Minnesota's Sharon Spethman. "They're a great way to work a few additional vegetables into a backyard barbecue."
I love to add this or that to recipes to create my own taste twists. Wild rice is a popular ingredient here in Minnesota. But the only way my kids will touch it is in these burgers.—Amy Barthelemy, Eagan, Minnesota
If you're looking for a deliciously different entree, try Hot Turkey Sandwiches suggested by Janice Bilek of Holland, Michigan. Her version has tender shredded turkey in a basil cream sauce. "The sandwiches are a nice change of pace from turkey in traditional gravy," Janice says.
“These delicious stuffed sandwiches are easy to put together,” assures Shannon Hansen from Oxnard, California. “Some can be baked as soon as they’re assembled, while the rest can be frozen for a quick dinner later. Sometimes I use cubed sharp cheddar cheese instead of shredded cheese in these sandwiches.”
