In the past few years, I’ve been trying to incorporate more whole grains in our dinners. Bulgur is one of my favorite grains to work with because of its quick cooking time. Besides being high in fiber and rich in minerals, it has a mild, nutty flavor that my kids enjoy. —Maria Vasseur, Valencia, California
These are great burgers for a luau or any backyard gathering! I came up with this while trying to find something new that my husband would enjoy. He had no idea they were turkey burgers, and now he asks for them all the time! —Kathleen Manasian, Whitmore Lake, MI
In contrast to traditional tacos, these taste complete as is, without further garnishes or sauces. I’ve also made this using bite-sized pieces of chicken thighs and increasing the cooking time appropriately. —Helen Glazier, Seattle
Celery, water chestnuts and mushrooms add texture and crunch to this hearty casserole that is full of ground turkey. "I'll fix two and serve one with a salad to make a complete meal," writes Georgia Hennings of Alliance, Nebraska. "I keep the second one in the freezer to bake when company's coming."
"My husband and I really enjoy these tacos," says Heidi Mahon Cook of Dallas, Texas. "The turkey filling is so good, we've stuffed it into pita bread, mixed it with scrambled eggs-and even stood over the stove and eaten it right out of the pan!"
"I wanted to cut back on red meat, but my husband thinks ground turkey can be dry,” says Lindsay Ludden of Omaha, Nebraska. “I think the taco seasoning and jalapeno juice in this recipe give the turkey added flavor and moistness…and he agrees!”
The hot pepper sauce comes through nicely to spark the flavor of these moist turkey burgers shared by Mavis Diment from Marcus, Iowa. "This is a good low-fat burger without the boring taste of typical low-fat foods," she notes.
