My mother always made Salisbury steak. When I married, I developed my own, and it just may be the recipe my husband asks for the most. —Leann Doyle, Patchogue, NY

"Excellent! Will most definitely make it again. Added more beef stock to make more gravy."

"OMG !!!!! This was wonderful !! I doubled the sauce and am so glad I did ! My grown son stopped by and joined us for dinner . I waited until he had taken a few bites , to tell him this was turkey . He laughed and said he was just going to ask what seasonings I put in the ground beef . I fixed mashed potatoes and asparagus with it . Only manners stopped me from licking the plate !!!!"

"Wow! This recipe is delicious! My husband is a hunter, so we have an abundance of venison in the freezer, so I used that instead of ground turkey, but both of us were very pleased with the end product! I would definitely recommend this recipe! Thanks for sharing it on Taste of Home!"

"OMG! Not usually a turkey person but these blew me and my family away. They were so moist and flavorful as well as easy to make. This is definitely a keeper as I will be making them often, oh yeah double the delicious sauce to slather over the steak and some mashed potatoes."

"Wonderful rich full flavor! My husband, a meat-lover, did not miss having the typical beef in this Salisbury recipe, and was completely satisfied with the turkey. **I will say, though, that I did not use just turkey breast but ground turkey in general, which would have contained some dark meat in the mixture. I have found turkey breast alone to end up being dry and even a gravy had a hard time masking the dryness of the meat. Also, I sauteed sliced baby portobellos and added them back to the pan before adding the patties back into the sauce for reheating. I rarely use canned mushrooms anymore, finding them a second class rubbery substitute for fresh. I served the steaks with green beans almondine, but yes, noodles or mashed potatoes would indeed be great accompaniments. Staying in my recipe box! :)"

"An awesome recipe to definitely make again. The only thing that I would do differently would be to double the amount of the gravy to put on potatoes that I make with the steaks."

"Yummy comfort food. We had it with mashed potatoes. I did not have A-1, but it was perfectly fine without it."

"Very good! Followed the recipe exactly. Only added a small amount of jalapeno pepper and grated cheddar to the turkey."

"This turned out wonderfully, but I made a couple changes. We don't like ground turkey, so I used ground beef. I didn't have canned mushrooms, only dried, so I put about a half cup of dried mushrooms into a pint measuring cup and poured boiling water over it until it read 2 cups. I then put a plate on top and let it sit while I made the rest of the dish. I used the mushrooms, soaking water, and 2 beef bouillon cubes in place of the beef broth and canned mushrooms. I probably added more onion too, but I am prone to that. Everyone liked it over egg noodles and again, cold, the next day as a sandwich filling on homemade bread."
