For Turkey Burgers….

Mix ground turkey, mustard, salt, and pepper until combined and form patties.


Preheat large skillet on medium-high and then place 1 Tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil in pan, then add burgers; cook 4–6 minutes on each side or until 165°F.

*Try not to mash burgers so they will retain their juices


When turkey burgers are thoroughly cook…place the burger on the bun and top each burger with the onion and apple slices, and cranberry sauce.


For a little extra kick add a little mustard on the inside of the bun and also your favorite cheese directly on top of the meat itself.

    I don’t eat meat, but I can do this with an easy substitution of the turkey burger. The whole package sounds great though. I’m going to have to try this with some tofurkey!
