I was surprised that this recipe had such a lack luster response!!! It is a great basis to go from when making this type of turkey burgers! After reading the review, I decided to slightly modify the recipe: I used tomato/basil feta cheese, used sweet and spicy banana peppers chopped, chopped onion, garlic powder, extra basil, and cracked peppercorns (ground). I couldn't put these down! I only made two small patties (i only had a small amount of ground turkey), and I wish I had more because I would have eaten them all!

Decent attempt, but the recipe doesn't really provide for a quality turkey burger that differs from a normal turkey burger. I thought the addition of the banana peppers and the feta cheese would provide for a unique texture and taste, but both failed to really get the difference that I was looking for. Good taste, but a normal turkey burger is less work and tastes about the same. Go for another recipe.

I did not deviate from the recipe's ingredients. However, I made the burgers and let them refrigerate overnight. I think this was the key to ensuring the burgers retained moisture and the banana peppers really marinated/tenderized the turkey meat. The burgers did not fall apart either and no, I didn't add any binders i.e., eggs, bread crumbs, etc. Yes, the feta disappears into the burger (ref: Holly's comment) but you can still taste it. I really like this but I think the key is putting all the ingredients together and letting it marinate overnight. So easy and tasty that I will make again.

I am giving this five stars both for the taste and ease of preparation. I did add two tablespoons minced onion and about 1/4 cup finely shredded Mexican blend cheese because I was cleaning out the fridge. I used Athenos reduced fat tomato and basil crumbled feta cheese. My entire family, including picky boys 2, 9 and 11, thought they were delicious. Thanks for the recipe-we will be using it again!

This is one of my FAVORITE turkey burger recipes! There is such a nice melody of flavors between the peppers, feta and meat. This is a huge hit at my house. Give this recipe a try!

I am a bonfide beef lover. For me, ground turkey is not a good fit in many dishes - mostly due to the texture. However, I am now sold on turkey burgers and I see that they are very popular. This is the first one I tried - loved it!!! I happened to buy a ground turkey that already had italian seasoning in it and the burgers ended up tasting like a mild sausage. The texture was thick and hearty. My entire family enjoyed them.

All I can say is... WOW!!! These were fantastic! I didn't change the recipe one bit and the burgers came out great. Up until now, our favorite turkey burgers were a recipe from this site called "Spicy Chipotle Turkey Burgers", but now after trying this one, there will be some serious competition between the two in our house. This recipe was SUPER SIMPLE with very few ingredients and SUPER FLAVORFUL results. I used a bit of A-1 steak sauce on mine and my husband used mustard on his... both ways were extremely tasty, but truthfully, they were even good just plain. My thanks to JENA-RATOR for submitting this one. Definitely worthy of more than five stars!

The recipe as stated was a starting point for me...I was afraid they wouldn't hold together well so I added 1 egg and 1/2 cup bread crumbs, 1/2 can black beans, 3 cloves garlic and 1/2 cup cheddar cheese...cooked on the Forman and topped with more cheddar cheese, a little salsa and avocado...served with Broccoli slaw (see the Coleslaw with a difference recipe)...really good...even my 3 year old loved 'em.
