I use ground turkey all the time as it is healthier (and cheaper) than ground beef. I am always looking for something different, and I was excited to try this recipe. I buy turkey in 1 lb packages, so that's how much I used. Also, I was out of gas for my grill so I had to cook them on the stove top. I didn't have any problems cooking them. However, the end result was a little disappointing. I thought there was too much pesto. I will only use 1 tbsp next time. I really like this flavor, but it was overwhelming. My husband thought they were too salty, so I will also cut back on the seasoned salt next time as well. I didn't add the additional on top, so I will probably only use t tsp total. I also wanted more cheese, so next time I will probably add 3/4 cup instead of 1/2 cup. With those modifications I think they will be a lot better!
