It’s occasionally starting to feel like Spring here in PA and it’s got me all sorts of excited to start grilling everyday! I’ve been scouting for burger recipes for months. Here’s one I found at Rachael Ray. With cranberry and green apples, it’s also great for Fall. Everyone I’ve served these to is obsessed with them and is always asking when I will be making them again. It’s a quick recipe you can serve in roughly 30 minutes. I promise you, you will love these…

Apple Cheddar Turkey Burgers (serves six)

  • 2 lbs Ground Turkey Breast
  • 2 tbsp parsley
  • 2 tbsp Adobo seasoning
  • 1 tbsp grill seasoning (I use burger grill seasoning)
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1 large Granny Smith apple – cut into 12 slices
  • 8 slices extra sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup whole-berry cranberry sauce (store brand is fine)
  • 3 tbsp grainy mustard
  • 6 English muffins split and toasted

1. In a bowl, hand-mix the turkey, parsley, Adobo, grill seasoning and onion. Form into 6 patties. Press your thumb into the middle of your fresh burgers so they don’t bulge when they cook.
2. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Place patties and cook for about 7 minutes on each side for medium.
3. While cooking burgers in a small bowl, mix together the cranberry sauce and mustard and slather on both top and bottom of muffins.
4. When burgers are cooked, top each with apple slices and 1 1/2 cheese slices. Tent the pan with lid or foil and cook until cheese melts.
5. Add burgers to muffins and ENJOY!

Please note, I’ve made slight modifications to the recipe. If you want to see the original, check it out at here.

  1. Me too Stef! Sounds delicious! I have tried a handful of Rachel Ray recipes tweaking them a bit too and they have been awesome! This one sounds delicious, like a Thanksgiving Day burger! Thanks Susan!! :)

  2. You know what else looks pretty great about these too, the english muffins. Sometimes rolls kind of overtake the burger, you know? And unless it’s a really good roll (and usually they aren’t) they just kind of get in the way.

  3. Hey Susan! I just wanted to let you know that I made these last night and the boyfriend and I were in *heaven*. They were so so so good and will definitely become a part of the rotation. Thanks a million :) PS: I used the new Hearty Grains Thomas’ English Muffins (no high fructose corn syrup) and they were delish!

  4. Ok, what the heck is Adobo seasoning?! I just back from the store and nobody knew what I was talking about.

    Oh no, are my burgers going to suffer from lack of Adobo?

  5. Stef, it’s a regional Spanish seasoning but don’t worry–I was out of Adobo (I use it often) and I subbed using garlic powder/season salt/black pepper and it turned out tasty. Just use a larger proportion of garlic powder and a little less season salt and pepper :)

  6. A-ha, I just saw that Goya makes it. I’ll get some next time. Tonight, I’ll make my own, thanks for the tip Recessionista. And check out her wht blog everyone (you can find a link on her profile page). Her pic looks almost as nice as Rachael’s!

  7. Well, I don’t know if it’s ’cause I’m an Englishman or just fussy with my food. But when I first came to America and saw people pouring maple juice on their bacon and sausages, I thought it was odd, and still do. Kind of like drinking an onion milk -shake!
    This burger though breaks my rules. The apple and cranberry really go well with the turkey and cheese. Texture and flavour akimbo…
    Yum yum, I smell the blood of an Englishman…

  8. We had our official test test of these burgers tonight and they were DELISH!! I loved the green onion in the meat (I love scallions in general). Had to make some light alterations because we didn’t have any adobo or grilling seasoning but I used a salt-free spice blend plus some smokey paprika and it turned out wonderfully!

    The grainy mustard/cranberry combo was my only complaint – too sweet! I added some dijon to the mixture to get some kick and it worked well. But overall, these are going into my rotation!
