These turkey burgers are awesome at a cookout, especially if you're trying to eat healthy. Try topping them with a little marinara or steak sauce. So good. —Darla Andrews, Lewisville, Texas

"They held together well here but lacked Italian flavor. The sweetness was what we tasted more. The provolone is a good choice though. Wouldn't do again."

"These burgers had great flavor, but I had a hard time keeping the patties together. They were falling apart while grilling. Also, only making 4 would have been too large a portion. I made into 5 burgers, but otherwise followed the recipe as provided."
