Juicy Apple Turkey Burgers – Makes 6 servings.


1 large apple, peeled and finely grated

1/3 cup cooked brown rice or quinoa

1 ½ tablespoon finely grated onion

1 garlic clove, minced

1 teaspoon ground sage

3/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/4 teaspoon dried thyme

1/8 teaspoon ground allspice

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

20 ounces ground turkey


If grilling the burgers, coat grill rack with nonstick cooking spray before starting the grill. In a bowl, combine the first 10 ingredients.  Crumble turkey over mixture and mix well. Shape into six 1/2-in.-thick patties.

Grill, covered, over indirect medium heat or broil 6 in. from the heat for 6-7 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 165 degrees F.   You may also cook in an oiled skillet until done.

To freeze:  You can either freeze after shaping, before cooking with wax paper separating the patties OR you can freeze after cooking.  After cooking, allow to cool, put in a freezer safe container separated by wax paper.
