"I loved this recipe with just a few changes. I used ground pork instead of turkey to suit my taste. I also used poultry seasoning instead of the sage. It does have sage in it but not as strong. Also, just a splash of oil was needed in my non-stick skillet. I made these as part of a Sunday brunch and they were everyone's favorite!"

"They were okay. Tasted too much like plain turkey."

"I really didn't like the mix of spices at all. Something tasted bitter and overall I found the patties blah!"

"We found this recipe to be just what we needed to cut fat and pork from our diet. The spices seemed to be the right combination. I would cut down on fennel simply because I don't appreciate the taste of it as much. It might have been better had a taken more time to crush it. We will make this recipe again!"
