    Good Lord Almight! These burgers are fantastic! After blending the ingredients, I let them set up in the fridge for about 1 hour before forming patties. Grilling was no problem after brushing the grill with a generous layer of olive oil. Forget the bun -- these burgers don't need it. Instead top with a layer of steamed spinich and serve with Sweet potato french fries. Visually stunning and absolutely delicious!!  -  19 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    At first I was hesitant about this recipe because I thought the burgers would be a bit too dry. I ended up using ground turkey breast meat and added about 1/4 cup of chicken stock to the mixture of meat, feta and olives before I formed the patties. They turned out to be juicy and wonderful, Definitely a keeper!  -  12 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    YUMMY, YUMMY, YUMMY! Who knew usually dry turkey burgers could taste so good? Made the recipe for Memorial Day cookout and everyone raved. Here are some tips for serving. I used fresh spinach leaves, sliced onion and roasted red pepper as a base for the burger in the pita - and topped it all off with a spoon of cucumber sauce. There are now brands of feta that have olives, sun-dried tomato, and basil already incorporated into the cheese - and this makes a wonderful alternative to plain feta. Also, if turkey burgers are a bit dry, use half to 3/4 the amount of turkey and supplement with lean ground beef. This does help make it a bit more juicy. This recipe is definitely a keeper! THANKS, LOl!  -  29 May 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
