Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yummy! This was an easy recipe. We subbed the turkey with moose meat. I could have eaten all 6 burgers myself!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A grilling staple!!! I didn't think that there could really be a "good" twist on an American classic....until now! Look out red meat Tom Turkey is steppin in! This was 2 thumbs way up from the family! I highly recommend there be no substitutions for the pretzel buns. They go perfectly with the turkey!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Turkey burgers normally taste kind of 'blah' but the Zesty Honey BBQ Dip Mix and Green Tea Peppercorn seasoning really made these burger ZING with flavor. The best part was, my husband and I enjoyed them for dinner tonight and put the rest of the patties in the freezer for another night. No mess, no bowls and no measuring just thaw and put on the grill. LOVE IT!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved the Cheesy Turkey Burgers These Cheesy Turkey burgers were great. The Zesty Honey BBQ Dip Mix is a perfect addition to any burger as a dry mix, but if you make the second packet and prepare as a dip and layer on the burger!!!! OHHH LAAA LAAA! Fantastic! My son even added a fried Egg for more protein!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy. Delicious. It doesn't get much better! Believe it or not, I've never actually had a turkey burger I liked, so I really didn't expect to like these either. The recipe was part of my Easy Grillin' 10 Meals & More Collection, so I thought I'd give it a try. Boy have I been proven wrong! These have so much flavor -- the blend of Zesty Honey BBQ Dip Mix and Green Tea Peppercorn Seasoning is perfect! And here's a tip that worked for me: Ground turkey has a much different texture than beef, so it can be a bit tough to make patties. I used a spoon to mix the ingredients together, and I wet my hands before forming each patty. That really helped keep the turkey from sticking to my hands. So these were easy AND delicious. Thanks, TS ... you've made me a turkey-burger-believer again!
