Meatball Nirvana
I made the mistake of making these (from another reviewer's suggestion) half hamburger meat and half Italian sausage) They were way too strong and over powering. Unfortunately the mild Italian sausage so over powered most everything else. I rated this a five star because my hubby really liked them and also because my alteration made this recipe taste much different than it would have been otherwise. So it would not be fair to give it a low rating. I will make this again using only hamburger meat and hopefully I will have a great meatball recipe, because if you stick to the recipe I don't see how you could go wrong with this one. These do a have a kick to them so if you don't like spicy, I suggest you omit the red pepper flakes.

Chef John's Quiche Lorraine
WOW! Delicious! Easy to make and so so good! Word of caution, it will take more than an hour for this to cool to just above room temperature and maybe longer. I gave it 35 minutes and decided to cut it and it wasn't long enough. It still tasted delish but wasn't firm in the middle. But I know for next time. The slices that cooled did firm up though eventually but we couldn't wait any longer after already cutting into it haha! I did have to bake it about 52 minutes because my oven seems to always take more time. I advise anyone who wants to make this to watch the video for some great tips. I did add about 3/4 of a cup of chopped leeks since he mentioned he added more. I used 7 ounces of Gruyere cheese because that's what I had and I didn't want to waste it, it's too expensive! In the video he says to layer with 2/3 of each and then top with the last 1/3 instead of 1/3 each x3 which is what I did because it was easier. My whole family loved this recipe. I will definitely be making this again on special occasions. Thanks to another fabulous recipe Chef John.

Chef John's Turkey Burger
OH MY MY! This burger is a wonderful expression of a great blend of spices which packs so much flavor and taste. I would give it a 10 if I could. I followed the recipe exactly. I built my burger how Chef John suggested and it was wonderful. All the flavors meld so well together. The tomatoes tossed in lemon juice added a delicious touch and it went so well with the cilantro. All the flavors compliment each other so well. This has to be one of my absolute favorites. My hubby said he couldn't wait to eat another one and I'll probably be dreaming about them in my sleep tonight haha! I cooked it on a cast iron grill on my stove top. I wouldn't recommend cooking them in a pan though, the grill worked so much better. To save time I started cooking two of them in a pan since the grill could only cook 2 at a time. I ended up taking them out because they were just parboiling in liquid and finished cooking them on the grill. They were very forgiving and cooked up well. It would be a shame to change anything in this recipe because this burger is perfect! Thank you for sharing this Chef John.
