Apple Turkey Burgers

appleburger

So thanks to Hungry Girl, I’ve been informed that May is National Hamburger Month.  In honor of this, we will be posting a different burger recipe every day this week.  With Memorial Day just around the corner, I’m sure a lot of you will be hosting and/or attending cook outs.  Hopefully these recipes will be helpful!  Enjoy!

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 apple, 1/2 grated for the burger, 1/2 sliced to top (I used a Braeburn apple)
  • 1 tbs dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp minced onion
  • 6 slices of turkey bacon
  • A few slices of fancy cheddar cheese
  • 1 toasted kaiser roll

Place turkey bacon under broiler and let it go about 5 minutes.  Flip and cook an additional 5 minutes.  I did this in my little toaster oven but if don’t have one, and your broiler gets screaming hot, you may want to cook the bacon on 450 instead of broil.  Set the bacon aside to cool.

Combine all the burger ingredients in a medium bowl and separate into 4 patties.

Heat a skillet on medium and spray with non stick cooking spray.

Cook patties about 4 minutes each side.

Top each patty with cheese and cover with an aluminum foil tent.  Allow about two minutes for the cheese to melt.

To serve, top with apple slices and turkey bacon.  We put mayo on our buns but I think this would be awesome with a shmear of apple butter!
