Reviews for Ranch Turkey Burgers
"These burgers are very flavorful and a nice change of pace. I'm not a fan of jalapeño peppers, so I left them out. They tasted great!"
"Great Recipe! Easy and yummy!"
"These were great! However, next time I think I will cut the amount of chili powder to only 1 1/2 tsp instead of 4. It just seemed to be too much at times. Great burgers though!"
"This was very tasty. I made a couple of changes - finely shredded the cheddar, and mixed 2 tbsp of the oil in with the meat mixture."
"These were very moist and delicious. Topped with lettuce and tomato and served with roasted sweet potato wedges (with extra sour cream/ranch dressing sauce as a dip!). Yum. As another reviewer mentioned, it would be nice to have the nutritional info. I almost didn't try these because of that."
"This turkey burger was the best one I have ever had. Not bland and boring like others. It was great even without the sour cream and dressing, which I didn't even add. This is a definite keeper!"
"We liked these, but I would like to know the nutritional values, per burger."
"I will try this. Most turkey burgers are so blah, this sounds very good"
