these and the tarragon turkey burgers are my 2 faves!! i used the extra lean ground turkey and didn't add anything extra but a little lemon juice. made 4.5 oz patties. they did not fall apart when grilling. i also liked the cucumber sauce better than most of the recipes i've tried. used fresh mint from neighbor's garden, and it had a peppery taste that was nice. chopped kalamata olives would be great in these!! baked sweet and white potato fries from a couple of recipes on this site.
Great recipe, however I have issues when forming my patties with them falling apart - my solution was to add about 1/4 cup of dried breadcrumbs + 1 egg yolk - stuck together perfectly without falling apart when cooking them!
These were very moist and I was surprised. I made 6 smaller burgers instead of 4 larger burgers and cooked them on an outdoor grill. I think the cucumber sauce should sit for a few hours to develop flavor. I made it right before serving and it was a bit bland. I also thought the burgers could have used either more onion or salt. Overall, this is something I would probably make again with the minor changes I mentioned.
This was a wonderful burger! I tweeked it a little bit by adding some minced garlic, fresh ground pepper, and a little marjoram to the meat mixture. We like onions so I added some red onion, finely chopped, to the yogurt sauce. Looking forward to tomorrow so we can eat the other two!!
