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.

The whole family loved this meal!!

Great natural flavors!!
Well-Made Turkey Burgers

Having never made nor enjoyed marinara sauce, this recipe was delicious. I made this for 5 people on Mother's Day and it was a hit! My finace couldn't stop talking about it the next day, and told me it was his new favorite. We even plan on making a bunch to freeze for the week.

I wasn't able to use focaccia as the store didn't have any, but any type of pita bread will do & instead of using plum tomatoes, I used whatever the grocery store had in stock. I did 1.5 of everything in the recipe and it made 6 burgers.

At first I expected the mozzarella to come out during cooking, but it didn't. Will definitely be a new recipe of mine!!

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.
