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.

Pretty Much a Letdown

After reading all the reviews, I was really disappointed by this relatively bland dinner. More like a Salisbury-style turkey Parmesan than a burger, it needs a LOT of kick and the calories are likely much higher than the nutrition info suggests (do the math individually and see). I'm not a fast chef but it took FOREVER to make and took much longer than expected to reach a safe temperature without burning. We won't make this one again.

Relatively healthy

This was absolutely DELICIOUS! It's definitely on our "favorites" list

Super Delish!!

This is hands-down my favorite dish!! It's so fresh and flavorful with all the basil and the marinara sauce is to do die for!! My only suggestion would be to either toast the bread or skip spreading it on top and bottom pieces of bread (it gets soggy before your first bite). I've made this for my husband, 1 year old son and my mom a few times - we savor EVERY bite!! HIGHLY recommend.

wonderful, tastes great

These burgers were tastey and easy to make. My husband and son both liked them so they are moving into the "can make again" file.

easy to make
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
