Can I freeze "gussied up" turkey burgers?

Well, I know I *can* freeze them but should I?

I have a recipe where you saute scallions, celery and Granny Smith apples in oil. That's then mixed in with the ground turkey along with s&p, chipotle Tabasco, lemon juice and zest, parsley and Major Grey's chutney.

I recently bought a tiny turkey (maybe 8#) with the idea to make ground turkey and freeze. But now I'm wondering about using the meat to make the burgers and freeze that instead in patties. I've made this recipe once before and it was great. Since I'd be sauteeing the vegs and fruit, the freezing shouldn't materially effect the texture of them. Is there anything I'm not considering here? I just recently made ground beef and formed them all into patties and froze. Not only is it the best hamburger we ever had, it's a luxury to have something like that in the freezer to pull out on relatively short notice. Not really interested in other uses for the turkey at this time. Just whether they ought to freeze without too much loss of taste or whatever. They won't last long in the freezer either :) Thanks all.
