I made these burgers for dinner Wednesday night, before we headed down to Maryland. I've made them once before and they were a big hit. They were easy to make and very flavorful. Beware that these are not the neatest things to eat. They are pretty big with all the "stuff" on them, which ends up falling out. The kids couldn't get the whole sandwich in their mouths! I eventually ended up eating this with a fork and knife!
Apple-Cheddar Turkey Burgers
Recipe adapted from EveryDay With Rachael Ray, September 2008
1 pound ground turkey breast
1 tablespoon 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
4 english muffins, split and toasted
1.In a bowl, combine the turkey 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.Place the cooked patties on top of the english muffin bottoms. Top with the sliced cranberry sauce and cover with the top muffin.
Family Rating: 1 1/2 thumbs up! (My son ate all the "stuff" but didn't eat much of the burger)
