      Interesting recipe. Turkey meat is quite dry but I hope the olive oil will take care of it.

      Voted up and shared.

      Oh my! Even though I have already eaten and it is close to bedtime, you have me salivating over this good sounding recipe. Can't wait to try it! I have new basil plants planted in the garden but still have frozen pesto from last year's batch. With the wonderful flavors from the sun dried tomatoes and all the other ingredients added to make these turkey burgers, I know that they would be delicious. Gave this a 5 star rating, up, useful and interesting votes...and will share.
