    This recipe was ok. watch adding too much thyme! mine were too tymey. Also, did anyone else have a problem with the burgers still looking pinkish in the middle? I cooked the heck out of them and still saw pink. I think maybe it's from the carrots? I used extra carrots. Maybe they would have been better if I hadn't cooked them so much. Over all good flavor though. I'm going to throw away the extras though due the pinkness. I'm just neurotic. I will probably try again someday.

    this did not turn out for me...the burgers were too wet and one fell apart in the pan. I tried these because the meatball recipe, done the same way, turned out awesome. Maybe, I need to try again and tweak something...or drain the veggies on a papertowel, first.

    This is an excellent recipe. Definitely dry the excess water off the veggies. I also add about 1/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs to pick up any remaining moisture. I've made this several times and love it, as does my boyfriend. It's a great way to sneak in the veggies :)

    Makes very delicious and flavorful turkey burgers. Got many compliments when I served at 4th of July BBQ. Be sure to drain excess moisture from grated veggies. I also added some plain bread crumbs to get to the perfect consistency for the grill.

    Fantastic recipe. Very yummy! I actually squeezed half a lemon into the burger mix and added a bit more thyme. Would be a great way to get kids to eat their veggies.

    This turned out excellent...tasted delicious. Was too lazy to drain excess moisture & thought about adding breadcrumbs but still turned out great. Will definitely make again.
