  • About This Recipe

    “These burgers are just delicious! The ingredients make for a burger that needs little topping – keep the ketchup and mustard in your refrigerator! And please don’t skip the barbecue sauce. It sounds a little odd, but it adds just the right flavor to finish off these great burgers. I’d recommend topping with lettuce, tomato and a little mayo.”

  • “These burgers were fantastic.I made them for a large group and got rave reviews!I used panko bread crumbs with Italian seasoning and added beer instead of the wine.Ended up with 9 large burgers that barely shrank at all on the bbq.DH loved them.I will definitely be making them again.”

  • “Delicious pattie – I used Panko crumbs and added Italian seasoning.Love the sundried tomatoes and the wine added to the overall robust flavor. Enjoyed even without the bun Will make again.They were quite soft to cook but worked making them in a skillet.I cutthe recipe back to two servings”

  • “What can I say?I made just as written and they were delicious.I used just a bit of the chianti to soften the sun dried tomatoes.I have no idea if it intensified the flavors but it seemed like a cool theory!Served on some homemade buns.Halved the recipe and it worked just fine.Very moist and flavorful burgers.Thanks for sharing!”

  • “These burgers are excellent.Much better than just a plain old turkey burger.I didn’t have any sun dried tomatoes or wine, so I just substituted a few diced up cherry tomatoes and some chicken broth and it still was delicious.This recipe is a keeper.”

  • “Our first time trying Turkey Burgers and to my surprise these were very, very good.Made these up just as you wrote them but only half the recipe was needed for our little family.i’ll do these again.TFS erin!”

  • “If I could give 10 stars to these burgers I would!We all loved them!I did not use the wine but even without these burgers were delicious!Believe me you don’t need to add lettuce etc..My DH always eats his burgers plain on the bun and he says this is the only burger he wants now.Thanks for a keeper!”
