These are my hubby's favorite turkey burgers and a staple in our house in the summertime. You have to try these with the chipotle-poblano ketchup...it's pure foodie heaven!

I was not wowed by these burgers. They were moist, not bland, but I somehow expected more from them. We happened to be lacking the ingredients to make the ketchup (a last-minute discovery) so we put about 2 Tbsps of our favorite salsa on top instead. Even with that boost of flavor, the burgers themselves seemed a tad bland. The Cooking Light Turkey & Oat burgers, I feel, are superior to these.

These were great! We used BBQ sauce instead of the ketchup as that is what I had on hand. We then froze the extra un-cooked patties-hopefully they turn out well in the future. The burgers were juicy and full of taste. I served some Trader Joe's baked Sweet Potato Fries on the side along with fresh fruit. An all-over yummy, healthy dinner!

I really liked this. I was reluctant to try a turkey burger because turkey by itself is rather bland. The spices gave this a lot of flavor. I used regular ketchup. I think I'll try BBQ sauce the next time I make this like some of the other reviewers suggested. I'll definitely make this again.

Tried these last night, added a little garlic, and extra crushed red pepper. also used a spicy barbeque sauce, you would never know it is not beef. so good and very satisfying.

These turkey burgers are really good and I make them all the time. I don't add the wheat germ, and cook them indoors for convenience. Don't skip on the chipotle-poblano ketchup, but if you don't have the ingredients, use cumin and chili powder to jazz up regular ketchup. Also, they are really good if you add sauteed mushrooms and onions.

These are delicious!! The spice is just right, and the onions added just the right touch. We tried both cheeses & both were excellent, and that ketchup!!!! WOW. I did use the wheat germ, but to me, it didnt add flavor. Great summer BBQ burgers

We really like this change for turkey burgers. The spices are good, but not hot, so everyone in the family can eat them. I always add about a tbsp of minced garlic & 1 egg to help keep the burgers shape. I usually serve with potato wedges & a corn & black bean salad.

We really liked these. We used bread crumbs instead of wheat germ, and skipped the cheese and grilled onions, and still loved them. We think they are better than beef burgers!

These burgers were fabulous! They were juicy and delicious. I couldn't fine the poblano ketchup so I used regular ketchup. I will definitely be making this again.

I made these for Super Bowl for my husband and I. We really loved them. They felt decadent and delicious. I would eat them even if they were the full fat version. Two giant thumbs up!
