"I didn't add the chilis as I can't do nightshades. It was good, a bit "trendy" (think coffee shop). It was light and it was easy, just different. I'll make it again when I'm feeling like something light to eat."

"If you mix in the turkey with the filling, it doesn't make as much of a mess when you flip it."

"This was really good. A little messy if you're not that adept with a griddle. I'll be making it again for sure. My son and friend liked it as well."
