Reviews for Skillet Ranch Burgers
"I only make turkey burgers and I only make them on the stove (I don't own a grill). I thought these burgers were great. I left out the jalape?os and hot sauce and didn't make the sauce. I also ate my burger in a wrap instead of on a bun. I will definitely make these again!"
"We really like ground turkey and with the jalapenos this burger is a keeper."
"For those that find the sodium content too high, you can make your own dry ranch mix from scratch and control that instead of using a pre-packaged mix, and for those who rated the recipe low because they are beef eaters instead of turkey eaters, you are doing other readers a disservice by rating a recipe on an ingredient rather on the recipe itself. If you don't like turkey, didn't try the recipe with turkey, then don't rate the recipe."
"I am far from healthy. So I decided to use beef that's 80% lean. And I kept the seeds in my Jalipeno's. Mmmmm. Delicioso as the Italians say"
"I # 1 would not make this with turkey burger. We are RANCHERS thus making us BEEF raisers and therefore don't like the RAP we get for not being healthy. Actually BEEF is ok if you choose a lean beef. And there is lots out there."
"Folks either like turkey, or they don't. But if you are eating this because you think it is healthier than a beef burger, please compare the nutritional information on these turkey burgers to a beef burger recipe found on this same website (Grilled Beef Burgers):One serving (1 burger) equals 351 calories, 13 g fat (5 g saturated fat), 40 mg cholesterol, 530 mg sodium, 30 g carbohydrate, 2 g fiber, 29 g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 3 lean meat, 2 starch, 1/2 fat.The beef burgers have less calories, less carbohydrates, much less sodium, and much less cholesterol.We eat pretty much everything we like - in moderation. Give me a good ol' beef burger anytime!"
"I have tried to do turkey burgers a dozen times, many different ways. They always leave me wanting. Same with this one. Very difficult to do on the grill. When we do burgers they are always on the grill. I tried, no more turkey burgers."
"I haven"t made these yet, but you can freeze your patties for just a a while and then they won"t be so soft on the grill!!! I've made plenty of turkey burgers and they've never slipped through!"
"My husband and I loved these burgers. They were pretty spicy but delicious and had tons of flavor. I made baked french fries for a side dish and they were perfect together"
"I keep looking for a turkey burger that will appeal to my beef- loving husband. Unfortunately, this isn't it. I thought it was tasty, but not exceptional."
