One Word: Delicious! My daughter and I loved this burger! Read the reviews, grabbed some roasted red peppers in a jar (still delish then went to work. Just like everyone said, it was moist and juicy. I added some garlic powder along with the salt and pepper and mixed it all up. Put a lil bacon grease in the skillet and sauteed some baby portabella mushrooms and onions and added them to the top of mine and it was a tasty addition. Will definitely make this again and pass this recipe along! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was so quick and easy to prepare. I used frozen turkey patties and added a bit of seasoning (salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder to the the stuffing (mozzarella, roasted peppers, and gouda. The burger was very moist, juicy and delicious. My husband loved it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I wanted to try something different for my husband birthday weekend. He's not use to trying different varieties of food but once he tried the Stuffed Turkey burger he loved it. It was very moist & flavorful the best turkey burger we ever had cause usually they be rather dry ;- thanks item not reviewed by moderator and published
I always try to find alternative other than beef, and this one actually worked. The spices not overwhelmed the original taste of turkey, but it enhanced the texture a lot, not dry! As an added bonus, it is quite simple, compare to other recipe I found that scientifically try to improve the texture and preserve the original taste of turkey. I made my own roasted red pepper and followed this Ellie's recipe exactly the same. Everybody at home (who get use to eat hamburger, brisket, steak, meatloaf, ALL beef like it a lot! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Hallelujah! A way to make ground turkey taste sensational, and my husband who is famously known for being a picky eater liked it! If you use dry herbs, make sure you use a third of what the recipe calls for. I heard that on Rachel Ray's show, and wish I would have known that a LONG time ago. Sorry - new chef in the making! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I prepared these burgers for lunch and OMG were they good! I will be making these weekly, they are fantastic!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was surprised to find that these burgers were actually quite good! After my husband and I ate, we didn't feel loaded down and greasy like we do when we eat a normal hamburger. I will make these again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe didn't have the most flavor. It is very healthy but I think some seasoning can really spice it up item not reviewed by moderator and published
Why do "reviewers" rate recipes that they have changed from the original and give the recipe 5 stars? It's either awful/good/great as it stands; don't change it and then say how good it is! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband and I have tried a variety of turkey burger recipes, but never feel fully satisfied with the end result. This recipe saves the reputation of turkery burgers. So moist and favorful!! I made it exactly per the directions/ingredients. I may experiment again with some of the other reviewers suggestions. But, in my opinion, this recipe is amazing, AS IS. I can't wait for tomorrow's lunch-leftovers. :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love recipes like this. So incredibly simple, it make me go "why didn't I think of that?". And you can really play around with it and substitute just about anything in the middle of your burgers. Awesome! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for a quick lunch and was pleasantly surprised. I seasoned the meat with season salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and worcestershire sauce. I didn't have roasted red pepper, so I just added a plain red pepper and a little Trader Joe's red pepper sauce with eggplant and garlic. Sprinkle skim mozzarella cheese, put on wheat bun, delicious! I didn't even add any condiments or sauces. Very good. This will be a weekly meal. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were great, my whole family loved them. I "doctored" the turkey before forming burgers by adding chopped chives, 1 TBL of dijon mustard, freshly cracked pepper, salt, and 1/2 tsp of garlic powder. I left out the roasted red pepper from my children's burgers and used smoked mozarella instead of regular. This recipe will be added to the roster! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is really great - I make it all the time in the grill pan. I always use breast meat ground turkey and it is a hit with everyone I have served it to. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a great. What I did was add to myground turkey (2) packs of onion soup. I have found that it takes lots of spice in ground turkey meat to give it that special taste. I also added some garlic. I wasn't sure about the broiling for (5) minutes. I broiled at 350 for (10) minutes. I also cooked it in the oven for another (10) minutes to make sure that my turkey was done. I can't wait to fix this meal for my cousins. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I would like to have the recipe for the tomato and onion side dish. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was the most moist turkey burger I have ever tasted. I did add a little garlic powder and dried minced onion to the turkey meat before putting them together. We did make these with Giada's sweet potato fries and garlic mayonnaise and put some of the mayo on the buns. Perfect flavor! This is a definite keeper. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband and daughter really love these. I make them with fat-free mozzarella, instead of skim, and the cheese melts just as nicely. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these burgers tonight and they were delicious. I seasoned the turkey and added finely chopped onions before creating the patties. I added garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika along with the salt and pepper. The whole family enjoyed them and I will continue to use this recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought this recipe was great. I seasoned the turkey before I filled the burgers with the peppers and the mozzerella, so I had no problems with flavor. It was fantastic! I will definitely make these again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The way the reviews read, I would have thought these burgers were going to blow me away. I was kind of disappointed because they really didn't have much flavor. I must admit that they were quiet juicy, but that's the only positive comment that I can come with. My daughter thought that they were good so I won't toss this recipe in my "Never gonna make again" pile. Next time I'll try seasoning the meat, instead of just seasoning the tops of the burgers. And I will also try the other suggested fillings. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband & I don't eat very much ground turkey---he especially loves beef. But, this is such an easy recipe and it's packed with flavor! I once used a jar of roasted red bell peppers in garlic and it added even more taste. We both love it!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These barely take any time at all from start to finish, which makes them good for a weeknight meal. The only thing I added was a little ketchup on top. The burgers were really good and I'd make them again. No problems with dryness or under-seasoning at all. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We loved these but I did not stuff the burger. I mixed in the pepper and topped it with mozzarella and some roasted garlic mayo. item not reviewed by moderator and published
these were juicy and easy to make. Like some of the reviews below, I would agree that you need to add some flavor. I added garlic powder on 1 of them, and it was better than the ones without garlic powder. I'll try this recipe with many variations. It really was delicious. I made it with sweet potato fries! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband and I both thoroughly enjoyed this recipe (we were fighting over the leftovers). The only thing I did differently was I mixed the stuffing in with the ground turkey and made patties out of that (rather than putting the mixture in the middle of 2 patties). Delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are so tasty and easy. They have so much flavor, you don't need to add condiments. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Ok so I added flavor to the recipe as well. I haven't liked turkey burgers in the past because they weren't flavorful. I combined most of the seasoning suggestions(italian seasoning, dried onions, garlic powder, sprinkle of paprika and some italian breadcrumbs). I did one burger with sharp cheddar cheese & the other with feta cheese. I liked mine the best.Hubby liked his and said for a turkey burger it wasn't bad. Picky daughter ate her's cut up & liked it. It's a keeper!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
We substituted Feta for Mozzarella and they turned out great. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I saw this recipe today and went straight to the grocery store after work. I used Italian seasoned Turkey Meat so the meat would have an interesting flavor to it; I also prepared mine on the grill for that charcol taste. I had to roast my own red peppers, I couldn't find them in the store. I sprinkled some Adobe seasoning, black pepper, garlic powder with parsely, sea salt and this great seasoning, Nature's Seasoning...it was great. Oh and I used fresh mozzarella. D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made this recipe twice now and both times it got rave reviews. I added some garlic powder, onion salt and italian seasoning to the turkey meat, but besides that followed the recipe. I had some South Beach dieters over the other day and rather than serve it on a bun, served it with a tomato, red onion, basil, oil & red vinegar salsa. Was great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved the recipe. Served the burgers on whole grain buns with lettuce, tomato and onion. They were delicious! This is a keeper! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was skeptical. The recipe requires little seasoning, and ground turkey can be a bit bland. I stuck to the recipe and was not at all dissapointed. The cheese and the peppers keep it flavorful and juicy. Even my five year old loved it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very easy and flavorful!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved the recipe. Delicious, quick and easy. I added garlic powder since I always add it to my burgers and roasted veggies. It works great here. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Really great burgers. I made them with the sweet potatoe fries and it was a fantastic dinner. Keep giving us more of these great and healthy recipes!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This has become one of my favorite recipes!! It is so flavorful! I used 99% lean ground turkey, which can be dry...so to add moisture, mix a little minced onion with the turkey before you make the patties. It adds great flavor too!! I also minced a little sun-dried tomato to put inside the burger. You would never know this is so healthy!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved this idea but I added a ton of Italian seasoning to spice it up a bit. With no seasoning it's a little too bland. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved how simple this recipe was, yet the roasted peppers and mozarella gave it a great flavor. I added seasoned salt and paprika to give it a little more flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was probably the best homemade burger I've ever had, not to mention healthier than a traditional beef burger. The only thing I changed up was adding some paprika to the ground turkey along with the salt and pepper. Juicy, flavorful, and absolutley perfect! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was really good. Definitely perked up the turkey burger! My husband wants me to try with onions and cheddar next time - in order to try other things. It was fun having all that melted mozzarella - like eating pizza! item not reviewed by moderator and published
add a little italian bread crumbs to the turkey for some extra flavor, otherwise a great meal that's a crowd pleaser without the fat of beef. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I couldn't decide whether I should jazz these burgers up with spices etc. Finally, I just made the recipe as it stated and we loved these burgers!So very tasty. When I make turkey burgers, this is the one I will make again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
flavorful, used skim mozzerella to make healthier also wheat buns. Made w/ sweet potato fries item not reviewed by moderator and published
The burgers were juicy and delicious , did not feel like I was eating a low cal. meal .Thanks Food Network for your great ideas. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These burgers were delicious. I have had turkey burgers in the past and found them to be dry. Not the case with this recipe. I mixed in dehydrated minced garlic, ground red pepper and onion powder before forming the patties. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The cheese really helps this be a moist burger even though it's turkey. I used red pepper flakes and it was a nice zip. Next time I will mix some spicy creole or steak seasoning into the meat before making the patties just to give it a touch more flavor. A fantastic healthy substitute!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The roasted peppers really make this burger pop. It is the most flavorful turkey burger I have ever tasted. item not reviewed by moderator and published
