Burger Heaven!

My pictures turned out blurry, but don't let that stop you from making these burgers!! They are amazingly good!! I told my husband we were going to start having them once a week. I still have some apples leftover from our apple harvest in early October, so I used what we had for the burgers. I think you could use whatever apple you want to and the burger will still be super delicious. You really HAVE to try these!

Apple-Cheddar Turkey Burger
adapted from Rachael Ray
2 lbs ground turkey
4 scallions, finely chopped
1/3 cup flat leaf parsley
1 Tbsp grill seasoning
1 tsp poultry seasoning
2 Tbsp Olive oil
2 apples (granny smith or anything a bit tart), sliced
Extra sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup whole cranberry sauce
2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
8 English muffins, split and toasted
In a bowl, combine the turkey, scallions, parsley, grill seasoning and poultry seasoning. Form into 8 patties, pressing your thumb into the center of each to prevent it from bulging. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil. Add patties and cook for about 6 minutes on each side. (You will probably only be able to cook 4 at a time.) Place patties on a plate and top with apple slice and a slice or two of cheese. Tent the plate with foil and repeat with other patties.
In a small bowl, mix together the cranberry sauce and mustard; slather on toasted muffin tops.
Pile lettuce leaves on each muffin bottom, top with patties and set muffin tops in place.
Serves 4-8
