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.
