Turkey Apple Burgers with lean ground turkey, apples, and sage are a delicious twist on a turkey burger that's healthy and full of flavor.
Turkey Apple Burgers are a healthy and easy way to bring all the flavors of fall into a quick dinner that is good for you and packed with flavor. No more boring turkey burgers around here.
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 to try 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.
These burgers freeze well so I would recommend making some extras to keep in the freezer for a quick future meal. To freeze the burgers raw, place them on wax paper or wrap each individually in plastic wrap so they don't stick together and store them in a large, freezer safe ziploc bag. To store cooked burgers, let them first cool completely. Once they are cooled, place them on a baking sheet or plate and place them in the freezer for 1 hour. Then you can add them to a ziploc bag, either wrapped individually or with wax paper between each burger. Cooked burgers can be reheated in the microwave in 1-2 minutes.
