  • Apple-Kissed Turkey Burgers by AustinAggie

    Posted by AustinAggie - August 23, 2004 04:56 PM

    I really need to try this one. If I buy meat, it's either canned tuna or ground turkey! The ground turkey at my grocery store is $0.99/lb.! So maybe I'll try this one someday, let me know if you do!

    Apple-Kissed Turkey Burgers

    Prep. time: 10 minutes
    Cooking time: 15 minutes
    Serves: 4


    Nonstick cooking spray
    3/4 pound ground turkey
    1/2 cup shredded, peeled red apple
    2 scallions, or green onions, thinly sliced
    3/4 teaspoon lemon pepper
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon apple pie spice**
    1/2 cup bottled chili sauce
    1/2 cup apple jelly
    4 plain or whole wheat hamburger buns, (toasted, if desired)


    Heat broiler. Spray broiler pan with nonstick cooking spray.

    Combine turkey, apple, scallions, lemon pepper, salt and apple pie spice. Shape mixture into 4 patties about 3/4 inch thick. Combine chili sauce and apple jelly in small saucepan.
    Broil about 6 inches from heat for 6 minutes. Remove from oven. Turn with a slotted spatula. Broil 6 minutes or until no longer pink in center.
    Place sauce on medium heat while burgers are broiling. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool slightly. Place burgers on bottom halves of buns. Top each with 2 tablespoons sauce.
    Cover with bun tops. Serve immediately.

    ** Substitute a pinch of cinnamon and a pinch of allspice for apple pie spice, if desired.

    Note: The turkey mixture and sauce can be prepared a day in advance and refrigerated, tightly covered. Broil patties and re-heat sauce just prior to serving.
