This is officially my very favorite burger recipe! I've made this recipe twice. However, I have not been able to find ground chicken in my grocery store, so I made this recipe with ground turkey instead. It was fabulous! In addition, I do not have a grill, so I put about 1/4 cup of veggie oil in a skillet and cook the burgers on each side for about 4 minutes until they are golden brown. Then, I drain the burgers on paper towels and serve them with cheese on top. The veggies give the burger excellent flavor and add a lot of moisture. Very yummy and easy to make!!

As burgers, this just did not work for me-- I would have needed to add several times more the amount of bread crumbs to get patties that would stand up to the rigors of grilling. Not to be deterred, however, I placed the mixture into a pre-greased loaf pan and made chickenloaf instead, baking at 350 for 30 minutes. It tasted pretty good (I admit I, too, was doubtful about the carrots), so it all worked out in the end. This recipe DID encourage me to look for (and successfully find) Old Bay seasoning, which I admit I had never heard of as someone raised and still living in the midwest, so I have a new staple in my spice collection. I might make this as a loaf again in the future, if I have a taste for it. Thank you, Teri!

REALLY REALLY GOOD! used green pepper b/c thats what i had also added chopped mushrooms... a keeper to be used AGAIN & AGAIN !! Also I first placed burgers on a piece of alum. foil and grilled for approx 2 minutes on each side before placing directly on grates, this eliminated my worry of them falling apart

You MUST try this recipe. The picture does not do these burgers any justice not to mention the title! Both a little on the BLAH side but these burgers are outstanding. I've never heard or seen 'old bay seasoning' (i'm from Canada) but i know the stuff is in everything on this site. A little research yielded some helpful advice (luv google). A little celery seed, mustard seed, bay leaf, paprika, pepper...and some more things i can't quite recall. Anyhow, absolutely deee-licious and the burgers maintained a nice firm round shape throughout the entire process. Served on whole wheat buns with a little ranch dressing and lettuce. I was in heaven!

Very good stuff! If you're scaling, however, keep the amount of egg and bread crumbs the same, or you'll get goopy burgers.

Really good. This can be made into a very delicious vegetarian version by using the mock chicken recipe.

These were pretty good but not outstanding. The red bell pepper worked well, but I am not so sure about the carrot. Also, I wish I had used Cavenders Greek Seasoning and not Old Bay Seasoning - to me, OBS tastes overwhelmingly of celery salt which I don't much care for. I found I needed way more breadcrumbs than the recipe called for. I might make these again, but I would definitely play around with the ingredients.

I cut the receipe in half but kept the bread crumbs the same as someone suggested. These came out great. We wil be making these again :)
