  1. So good! They almost had a sausage like flavor. Sweet and savory. Couldn’t pass up a recipe with leeks. They’re my fave! Love your recipes. Keep them coming!

  2. 5 stars
    These turned out so good! The sundried tomatoes and bell pepper are great mixed with the turkey. My spouse was skeptical when I said we were making turkey burgers, but he loved them too!
