So delicious and low in fat! Go figure. My family requests that I make them for every picnic or social event. Use any type of cracker that you like. Cheese crackers are my favorite.

Nice invention, Amy. For those interested in a healthy eating plan, this can be something you come back to again and again. Indeed, it is a healthy recipe. But the best part of this recipe is that it TASTES GOOD. I mean it REALLY tastes good. Admittedly, I was really hungry. And admittedly, I was looking for something spicy and interesting--not the same low-fat, low-cal routine. And man, Amy, this fit the bill and then some. Thankfully, I doubled the recipe so I can eat these delicous burgers for the next week or more. I thought there might be too many red pepper flakes for my taste, but the bite was just right. I'm a condiment freak and I couldn't bear to even consider putting ketchup and mustard on these. I used whole wheat buns, a fresh garden tomato, onion and a few dill slices and with a little Mexican Bean Stew on the side (also available on the allrecipes website), this was a Tex-Mex flavored meal fit for a king.

I changed this around a "little" but it was great! instead of garlic powder I used mincced garlic from a jar and I halfed the red pepper. It was still spicey though. I grilled some french bread and topped with sliced cheddar cheese. My husband really liked it and we will make this again. We grilled them on the Goerge Forman grill enjoy! Read More

Absolutely SCRUMPTIOUS! The cheese crackers and the combination of seasonings gave these burgers such a great taste. The only thing I changed was ground chicken instead of turkey. I topped these magnificant burgers off with some pepper jack cheese and a slice of turkey bacon. This is definitely a recipe I will use again and again not to mention share with family and friends.

This was interesting...be careful the amount of crackers you use or you'll end up with something more like a spicy meatloaf! Very versatile recipe! Pile with lettuce tomato onions cheese and a little BBQ sauce on a multi-grain roll for something that'll pass for a Ruby Tuesday-type burger! I will make this again but try the combo without turkey and mince with fresh shucked quahogs for stuffed quahogs on the half shell. Or I'll do it with tofu for a spicy vegetarian burger. I will also use the seasoning-cracker combo with shredded imitation crabmeat for crab cakes (just double the amount of cracker crumbs and add a little melted butter). Thanks for the recipe Amy!

This was an easy quick and healthy meal. My husband and I as well as my children enjoyed it. As others have mentioned I also made my burgers on the George Foreman grill and modified with less red pepper flakes and a little more garlic. Thanks Amy! Read More
