Oh, these burgers are great! I had them two nights in a row.

I am usually disappointed by turkey burgers because they usually come out too dry. But these have tons of flavor. Michelle thought they were a little too spicy but I thought they were perfect. Post your concoction here and I'll compare...

I made these once during my family vacation for 24 people and everyone agreed my dinner (everyone had to make dinner one night) was by far the most exciting and delicious. We made the mint mayo from scratch instead of buying bhome bought. They were a hit. Only problem was that they fell apart a little while cooking them. Still... they were awesome!
