Apple Cheddar Turkey Burger
Yum-o!!!! Literally this was so good. I made this last night for dinner. Dh is actually begging to have it again because he loved it so much and i really expected him to just say it was okay. We cut the recipe in half to accomodate just the 2 of us but i will post the full recipe which serves 4 people. We also switched a few things around which i will post under the recipe. This is one of Rachael Ray's Recipes from her magazine. Enjoy it, we sure did!!!
2 lb of ground turkey
4 scallions finely chopped
1/3 cup flat parsley chopped
1 TBSP grill seasoning
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
2 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
1 granny smith apple cut into 12 slices
4 slices of cheddar cheese
2 TBSP of mustard
1/4 c. cranberry preserves
4 english muffins toasted
1. In a bowl, combine the turkey, scallions, parsley, 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 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 muffin tops. Pile 2 lettuce leaves on each muffin bottom, top with the patties and set the muffin tops into place.
***Here are the changes we made other then cutting the recipe in half, we used shredded cheddar cheese instead of slices and we ended up placing only 2 apple slices on top since we couldnt fit the 3rd. Instead of making the cranberry/mustard sauce we actually used raspberry preserves because we already had them and my Dh doesnt like mustard at all. Instead of scallions we used a regular white onion chopped finely it was about 1/4 cup, we already had this instead of scallions. It came out wonderfully. Remember that 1/4 c. i put in was only half the size recipe of the above so thats only for 2. It made 2 really big burgers. I highly recommend it!**
