Apple Turkey Burger


Monday night usually means something quick and easy, and a lot of the time that means burgers. Except I did not want the usual burger today. I wanted something different. A turkey burger sounded intriguing but it needed some flavor and some moisture. I got some inspiration from an article I read in a magazine once titled 25 gourmet sandwiches for guys. Not sure why these sandwiches were for guys in particular, but the apple turkey burger sounded interesting. There was no recipe, just a picture and a short description. So, I plopped the ground turkey in a bowl and started adding stuff. I started with the ingredient from the name, an apple. I used a granny smith diced small. I added some onion and a minced jalapeno for some kick. Then I just added salt, pepper, and thyme. These grilled up juicy and tasty. I added Swiss cheese on two and cheddar on the other one. I started with the bottom bun, and then added spicy pickles, the turkey burger, lettuce, red onion, and I topped it with honey Dijon dressing. Not your boring Monday burger!
