    I made this dish last night to rave reviews. The zucchini fries were fantastic, and even a hit with my very picky 11 year old son who will do anything to keep from eating any sort of vegetable whatsoever. My husband prepared the hamburger patties, adding his own selection of spices to punch up the flavor of the beef. Will definitely make this recipe again.

    I am confused about vegetables, how can i estimate them cause one Zucchini can be 200g and another one can be 50g and same for onions, is it possible that recipes contain all veggies by weight.

    This meal was delicious, truly, BUT it took my son and I one hour of hands on time, NOT 10 minutes!! And it is in Quick and Easy Meal Plans #4 ... please change the prep time and move it from that meal plan. Though delicious, it made for a really stressful evening, not a quick and easy one! Thank you!

    Is there another cheese I can substitute for the goat cheese.

    I didn't love it. It took a long time to cut and dip the zucchini and wasted quite a bit of the parmesan cheese and almond flour. I'm glad I tried it anyhow. I don't like goat cheese so used something like swiss instead.

    Husband rating 4.5 My rating 4.5 Changes- Zuchinni fries were time intensive and there was actually double the seasoning as would stick to the zuchinni so I just coated another 1/2 of zucchini and made double the fries. I used forks to dip the zucchini to keep from getting the seasoning all over my fingers, but I think I would skip the first coating instead I'm going to try putting all the zucchini into the egg batter at one time, and then transfer them all at once into a big bowl with the seasoning and toss them in the batter. for a couple of them I just coated them with egg, put them on the sheet and poured the seasoning over the top. Honestly tasted the same. Would have saved at least 20 minutes. husband loved the dipping sauce and I'll make this all the time now as a sugar free alternative to ketchup. Thank You!
    Also skip the step of sautéing the onions, just use raw instead, I think I like that flavour better and that would have saved time. But the onions did make it feel extra fancy along with the goat cheese.
    Turkey seemed bland to me even though I had lots of Costco Montreal Chicken seasoning on them. I think I'll try what's in the other burgers as a mix in to make them more jazzed up.
