    I made the turkey burgers tonight with the garlic mayo. Excellent recipe! I am freezing half the recipe. The only concern I have about freezing is because of the zucchini in the burger and perhaps getting watery.

    I made these turkey burgers the other night and we absolutely loved them! YUMMY! It would never have occurred to me to add zucchini! The hubby likes turkey burgers and said these were the best he’s ever had! This recipe is a definite keeper, especially for summertime zucchini season! Thanks so much Elise!

    I love this recipe but now I’ve been cooking gluten-free, I haven’t been able to make it…but, tonight, I was thinking that I could just marinate chicken breasts with the oregano, basil, garlic, and green onion instead of eating it in a bun…I added a squirt of lemon juice to the olive oil…Put them aside while prepping and cooking my sides then searing in a frying pan. Still made the garlic mayo but added a lil grated cucumber, splash of lemon juice, and 2% Fage greek yogurt. Yum.

    I made your “couscous with pistachios and apricots” recipe to go along with the chicken and instead of the couscous, I used quinoa. Also, used a fresh apricot but added it while letting the quinoa rest for 5 minutes. It softened and was a lot cheaper than dry apricots.

    I homemade oven baked sweet potato fries and a chipolte mayo to go with. Pairs so well with the burger-try it!

    Everything together was awesome. Hope the suggestions are useful for someone!

    I forgot to add the Garlic Mayo is FAB! My 15 yos, used his finger to wipe the bowl CLEAN!!! (This is a real compliment as he HATES getting food on his hands).

    Hi Elise…

    So I made these for 16 teenagers/young adults for my daughters 20th birthday last night. Of course I did NOT tell them they were turkey, nor did I volunteer they had zucchini in them. (My daughter hates zucchini).

    As the the dinner commenced, the commentary abounded about how yummy the burger are! Things like, “my mom’s don’t taste like this” came out of many mouths. Two of the boys came into the kitchen to tell me “these are the most delicious burgers I have ever eaten”! I was so pleased because I do love to feed people that appreciate it!

    Thanks so much for you and your blog. We have very similar taste in food (pun intended), and you have never failed me! I have even instructed my daughters (20 and 17) that when they are on Pinterest, to choose recipes from a few sites I trust …yours is at the TOP of that list :)

    Hope your mom and dad are doing well. I love your mom’s enchilada sauce! And your dad’s sense of humor. You do an excellent job of honoring them in your writing. I am sure they are proud of you.
