14 Nov


i did not have a plan for dinner tonight — none at all.  but i did have some ground turkey in the fridge.    this recipe was super fast definitely under 30 minutes!   i wasnt sure how mustard and cranberry sauce would taste mixed together, but it was really good!  my favorite mustard is this maille dijon

Apple-Cheddar Turkey Burgers

adapted from rachael ray magazine



  • 1 pound ground turkey breast
  • 1.5 T dried onion (i used tastefully simple onion onion)
  • 1 tablespoon grill seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  • 1 apple, such as granny smith, cut into 12 slices
  • 8 slices extra-sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup whole-berry cranberry sauce
  • 2 tablespoons grainy mustard
  • 4 hamburger buns



  1. In a bowl, combine the turkey, onion, grill seasoning and poultry seasoning. Form into 4 patties, pressing your thumb into the center of each to prevent it from bulging.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the EVOO, 2 turns of the pan, over medium-high heat. Add the patties and cook for 6 minutes on each side for medium. Top each with 3 apple slices and 2 cheese slices, tent the pan with foil and cook until the cheese melts, 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the cranberry sauce and mustard; slather on the bun tops, top with the patties and set the bun tops into place.
