Very good. The apple and rice definitely improve the texture, and flavor, of ground turkey! I was worried at first that the burgers would taste like 'Thanksgiving' with the sage, but no. I tried to follow the recipe exactly, but I didn't have the exact herbs. Used a scant teaspoon of ground sage, as the ground seemed more potent than the rubbed; minced my thyme leaves with an herb mincer. Changes I made on purpose: left out the allspice and used half as much cayenne. I guess I'm stuck in my ways (understatement), but generally don't care for what I think of as baking spices in meat dishes, so left out the allspice. I didn't taste the cayenne, so could probably use more next time, but may not, as the flavor was good anyway. Minced the onion instead of grating. I also forgot the parsley. We ate these on whole-wheat buns with onion, lettuce, and tomato, and Red and Sweet Potato Salad. My fiance actually gave these a five, and when I asked him what he liked about them, he said 'compared to last night'. (We had black bean burgers the night before...which he ate, but apparently didn't like very much!) So I'm rating a four, which for me is Very Good, but not five, which is Knock Your Socks Off Can't Get Enuf. Also, I would like to try this recipe with quinoa instead of rice, as I've also tried the Turkey Quinoa Meatloaf.
