These tasty turkey burgers, served on toasted focaccia and dressed with marinara sauce, are reminiscent of a sausage pizza. Shredded mozzarella combined with fresh basil melts beautifully inside these gems.

Easy and Yummy

My fiance and I just loved these burgers! I am just a novice cook and found the recipe easy(although I did use store bought marinara). These were the best turkey burgers we have ever had ANYWHERE!!! I served it with an arugula salad, which complimented the burgers nicely. This one is definitely staying on our list of go to recipes!

Easy to make, can substitute store made marinara

This was very tasty and quick. Would like to figure out a way to prevent the cheese from melting out, though.

Good taste, quick to make
These burgers were awesome. So easy to make. They stayed really juicy.

I actually put these in wraps to eat. It helped keep the cheese in.

All of the items needed to make this were things I always have in the cupboards

My Husband and I LOVED this recipe. The lemon in the turkey burger really elevated the taste of the basil. We will absolutely make this again.

Very Tasty!

I thought these were very good! I made them exactly as the recipe specified and cooked them on the grill outside. They cooked easily and stayed together surprisingly well. The burgers were very juicy and flavorful. I did think the lemon zest was a pretty strong without the marinara though. I'd probably cut it down next time so it doesn't take over the flavors in the burger so much. The marinara sauce was great with it.

I served them over slices of asiago focaccia which I toasted on the grill after the burgers were done. They looked great and went together wonderfully.
