Recipe

These Turkey Apple Burgers are moist, packed with flavor, and a delicious twist on a traditional turkey burger.

With fall in full swing and Thanksgiving on the horizon, I have turkey on the brain. But with busy weeknights and a hectic work schedule, most turkey dishes are out of the question. That is, except the humble turkey burger, which is a staple in our home. Normally when I make turkey burgers, I automatically reach for spice to add flavor but this time I wanted to do something different and decided apples, which were the perfect way to add both moisture and flavor. Paired with fresh sage, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder - it's a seriously delicious, fall inspired burger.

Now let's talk about the toppings, because this burger calls for some amazing toppings. Let's start with the cheese. I recommend going with a classic cheddar or a creamy brie, which both pair great with apples. After that I would reach for some whole grain mustard and a touch of either cranberry sauce or cranberry chutney. So good. The top it all off with some fresh spinach, thinly sliced red onion, and apple slices for an epic burger.

Directions

  1. Use a box grater to grate half of the apples. You can also finely dice it, but I prefer it grated. Thinly slice the remaining apple and set aside.
  2. Add the grated apple, turkey, sage, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder to a bowl. Mix using your hands. Form into patties.
  3. Brush the patties with olive oil. Cook in a medium hot skillet for 4-5 minutes per side or until cooked through. Top with the sliced apples.
