    These are delicious! I used extra garlic and garlic-flavored olive oil for an added kick! I forgot to buy eggplant, so I used fresh bread crumbs (1 slice) mixed with 1 T milk instead (see Spicy Poblano Burgers with Pickled Red Onions and Chipotle Cream). They came out great!

    I thought this was a very good and different recipe and since I love tyring new things this was for me. The eggplant topping is delicious. Since I did not have or want to buy marimite, I just used worchestershire sauce and also added some fresh garlic into the burger. You could probably get away with increasing the soy sauce too. Since I made only two patties I used a baby eggplant. The recipe is simple once the eggplant topping is done so you can do that ahead of time.

    Made this on 7/13/10 and agree w/other reviewer. Didn't want to buy Marmite for 1/4 tsp, but instead used Worchestershire and should have added garlic. Very moist burger, good flavor/texture, needs garlic & I'll probably try w/Marmite to determine effect (if any) and whether Marmite could uptick flavor of any other dishes. Ground meat myself from thighs & breast, worth the effort.

    These are the BEST turkey burgers I've ever had. Only change I've made is that I puree the whole eggplant, peel and all (obviously, not the stem and leaves, though). The skin is where all the nutrients are!! I serve them on whole wheat thin buns, and garnish with some arugula. Delish!! Making them for dinner again tonight with fresh eggplant from our garden. Can't wait!
