"As with the reviewer below, I used dark meat turkey which was moist enough that I didn't need to add the milk. To compensate I added additional bread crumbs. These were delicious. I did not make the basil mayo, not enough basil, and definately recommend finely chopping the onions, so you don't end up with big bites of onion. I grilled these on the panini press rather than broiling (less mess), took 6 minutes."

"I used ground chicken instead of turkey. The ground chicken was moist enough that I would not add the milk next time."
