""Best tasting homemade turkey burger. This is the only way my family and I will eat turkey burgers. The burgers keep their shape, they're juicy, and flavorful. I added my own seasoning plus the chilli powder."

"Wonderful alternative to ground beef burgers. Was afraid the burgers wouldn't hold together -- but they did just fine. The men in the house didn't even miss the beef!! (I used shredded carrot instead of the zucchini because that's what I had on hand.)"

"We really enjoyed this burger. It's been a long time since I've tried ground turkey, as I haven't been a big fan of it, but am so glad I did. I did use corn in place of the red pepper and loved it in there, fresh off the cob. We also skipped the bun and didn't miss it a bit. Thanks TOH kitchen!"

"These were really good turkey burgers. I was worried they weren't going to hold together but they did and even my 8 year old ate them! I got 6 burgers instead of 4."

"Used a 1 lb package of ground turkey. These were good but could have used a bit more seasoning. Also, the mixture is quite soft, so we found that making the patties early and chilling in the fridge or freezer helped firm them for cooking on the grill."

"I love all the ingredients in this recipe and I just mixed up a batch, and they smell wonderful (not cooked yet). I am wondering if they can be frozen either before cooking or after? Would like to have this on hand for future meals since I have the mess going and lots of ground turkey to deal with today."
