This was a great recipe. I played with the seasonings a bit and taste tested versions along the way until i had what I think is the best: 3 Tbsp bbq sauce, 1 tsp worcestershire sauce, 2 tsp spicy brown mustard, 2 cloves of minced garlic, 1/4 c finely chopped onion, 1.5 tsp chili powder, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/3 cup panko/breadcrumbs. With the increased breadcrumbs, it had no problem staying together on the grill. I would definitely make it again for another cookout.

a little too bland (and we used a chipotle bbq sauce) next time I will add a few dashes of habanero tobasco, and sub 1-2 tsp minced garlic for the garlic powder. it was a pretty good alternative to a beef burger, so we probably will have them again

It was a quick and easy recipe -- perfect for the weeknight. It is one of my "standby" recipes.

Perfect! I've made these over and over. I didn't use the onion, because didn't have any. Didn't use the garlic powder, same reason. Added a 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon, too. Yum!

We really liked this one! The ingredients added to the meat really give bland turkey some flavor. They were moist and stayed together very well for me. I oiled the grates on my outdoor grill first and that kept them from sticking. I would make these for company.

I cannot say enough good things about this recipe! I used Trader Joe's Dijon Mustard and smokey barbecue sauce and cooked them on my Griddler. They were moist and flavorful. Made a burger for me and my boyfriend and kept the other two patties in the fridge for dinner the next night, they were just as good the second day. He couldn't stop raving about them, a definite A+ weeknight meal.

I think cooking time could make a difference. I cooked them on a grill, med-hi, covered at three minutes per side. They weren't terribly dry, but they could have been a bit more moist. I used ground turkey breast from Whole Foods, perhaps I should have used ground turkey thighs. Still, texture issues aside, the taste in these things was underwhelming. Sometimes i feel like I end up cooking some form of turkey burger recipe every few months simply to remind myself that turkey burgers just aren't that good. On the plus side - the meal was quick and easy, the burgers stayed firm and intact on the grill, and although it was nothing special, it also wasn't a bad recipe by any means. You could certainly do worse than this recipe, but you could also do a lot better.

I think this is a pretty good turkey burger. I add a little minced garlic. We serve them with jarred jalapenos on top along with the bbq sauce. I use 93% fat free ground turkey with all turkey burger recipes, you can go lower fat if you want, but they will be dry.
