This fast and easy recipe is perfect to make after a long day at work. The goat cheese adds a creamy flavor to sometimes bland turkey burgers. Served with a side salad, it makes a perfectly delicious meal.

Really delicious. Made changes based on others suggestions. I used fresh baby spinach that I sauted with a bit of onion and red pepper doubled amount of goat cheese added about 1/2C seasoned bread crumbs and one egg. I didn't add salt or pepper. The cheese is salty enough and I used 5 peppercorn goat cheese I bought at the Farmer's Market. It wasn't super easy to form the patties but I got the hang of it and was able to get 5. Put them on a cookie sheet and into the fridge for a couple of hours. Fantastic surprise of flavors. Very very good. UPDATE-I have found that it is important not to over cook the burgers in order for them to stay moist. I have also made them without an egg and I prefer the texture. Read More

Very yummy but I did a lot to the recipe to make it the way I envisioned it tasting best...and it worked out well! 99% Fat Free Turkey (1 lb) made 4 good sized burgers...I mixed 2 tablespoons of feta garlic sauteed spinach (1/4 cup) 1/2 tsp garlic powder 2 splashes of Worchester sauce 1 egg 1/2 tsp ground pepper and 1/4 cup italian bread. Served with tomato bacon slices bibb lettuce whole grain mustard pickles and mayo. My hubby has never had good turkey burgers before and really loved this. Will definitely make again but I would imagine that without my additions the recipe would have been pretty plain - thus my rating of the recipe. Read More

OMG! We do love these burgers! Made first exactly as directed (ok a little extra cheese:) topped with carmelized onions and a little mayo/dijon spread. Then made again with feta & chopped black olives thin sliced red onion to top and a homemade cucumber/yogurt sauce. We can't get enough of these! The most consistant response "this doesn't taste like turkey"! Last night made with goat cheese and chopped sundried tomatoes (not the ones in oil) yum! I will never again attempt a to make a turkey burger taste like ground beef! Great recipe thanks! Read More

These are really great turkey burgers! Very flavorful and moist. I doubled the recipe and used suggestions made by the other reviewers such as using sauteed fresh spinach. For the 3 lbs. of turkey I used 1C. of breadcrumbs 2 eggs and about 3 ozs. of goat cheese. Half of the burgers went into the freezer for another meal and the others I broiled in the oven. My hubby and 2 teenage sons loved these so much that we had the ones from the freezer 2 nights later! Read More

These were relly good for turkey burgers; not dry and good flavor. I changed them a little taking advice from the others. I diced onion and sauteed that with fresh spinach. to the turkey mixture I added just a tad of S & P onion and garlic powders and I doubled the goat cheese then pan fried and topped with sauteed shrooms. Light mayo on a whole wheat bun and they were done. My boyfriend scarfed down two! Read More

I have made this recipe twice. Froze some and they were perfect. I did make some changes like some before me have.Cooked the spinach with 1 tb chopped onion and a pinch of garlic powder till dry. I used feta cheese instead of goat cheese. Added 1/3 cup of seasoned bread crumbs 1 tb. parmasean cheese dash of worcestershire and a pinch of Old Bay. I baked them for 10 min @450% then put them under the broiler to brown up. Great recipe!! Read More

Listen this recipe is AMAZING if you follow the advice of everyone else who has reviewed this. Add one egg more cheese caramelized onions and garlic. I also mistakenly bought ground chicken-- and that was amazing also. I served it with yogurt and cucumbers as suggested! Definitely try the recipes with the suggested additions. Read More

I made this exactly as directed and although is was very good (and unique!) it lacked in a lot of flavor (compared to beef burgers).. as ground turkey seems to be notorious for. Next time I will definitely add some grated onions cayenne pepper salt and maybe a splash of Worchestershire sauce. I enjoyed the moist texture of these burgers! I ate it without the bun and mdae sweet potoato oven-baked fries to go along with it. If I would have had time I would've topped with grilled onions no doubt. I had no trouble forming these into nice thick patties and I placed on a lightly greased baking pan lined with foil. I put them in the oven at 450 F for 10 minutes and then "broiled" at 500 F.. and they were perfect. Thank you for the recipe! Read More
