Not the best burgers ever but pretty good for turkey. The mixture was VERY wet so I had to add more oats just so they didn't crumble. Could have used more spice to make them more flavorful.

I tinkered with the recipe a bit and my husband and I loved these. Passed along my adapted recipe to a friend and she made them twice already. Used 1 egg instead of 2 egg whites. 1/3 cup fire roasted salsa instead of diced tomatoes. Added sprinkle of garlic powder and 1/4 tsp pepper. Came out with 8 large patties. Cooked on a griddle and grilled some sliced onions with them as well.

Awful! The texture of the burgers was like a sponge: wet and squishy. The flavor was weird. I ended up having cereal for dinner instead. I cook almost exclusively with Cooking Light recipes and this is the first one I absolutely hated.

I thought this recipe was okay but I wouldn't make again. I have had better meatloaf. I even added 1/4 cup worcheshire to make it more flavorful but still not great.

I REALLY liked these, but they are definitely a "pan-grill only" recipe due to how moist and loose the patties are. Reheats nicely. Good flavor, BIG portions, cheap and quick. Cooking time is more like 8 minutes per side.

Very healthy and tasted good as leftovers the next night. Substituted a sourdough English muffin instead of an onion sandwich bun.

Very good and moist. Easy to make.

I had the same problems as others,but it's my fault. Only two of my burgers managed to keep shape, one fell apart completely and the last I made was falling apart on the side. That being said, they are delicious! I liked the tomato in them and the crumbled one tasted fine without the aid of the bun. Used "spring mix" lettuce and got a nice bite of bitter green on the crumble chunks stuffed on the lightly toasted sesame bun I had. My family liked them too. I halved everything, except the tomatoes, which was probably my problem, and the chili powder. Also added garlic powder. Very yum.

Very wet and soggy, not much flavor. I provided slightly less than the required meat weight and tried to anticipate this to no avail. I would suggest pressing as much liquid as possible out of the canned tomatos.

A turkey burger recipe has to do two things: add moisture and add taste to ground turkey (especially turkey breast). It added plenty of moisture, but the flavor was not so good. The chili powder flavor was too pronounced and not subtle at all. The tomatoes were not helpful. I will stick with my onion soup and zucchini burgers, while experimenting with other recipes.
