These sweet and sassy turkey burgers are scrumptious! I served them at our last family reunion and they were a huge hit (Uncle Milton had two!). Cranberry sauce with turkey is a match made in heaven. —Marla Clark, Moriarty, New Mexico

Ingredients

  • 6 turkey bacon strips, diced and cooked
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/4 pounds extra-lean ground turkey
  • 1 Italian turkey sausage link (4 ounces), casing removed
  • 3 slices part-skim mozzarella cheese, cut in half
  • 6 onion rolls, split
  • 6 tablespoons jellied cranberry sauce
  • 6 tablespoons fat-free mayonnaise
  • 6 lettuce leaves

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Crumble turkey and sausage over mixture and mix well. Shape into six burgers.
  2. Lightly oil the grill rack. Grill burgers, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 165° and juices run clear. Top with cheese; cook 1-2 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
  3. Toast the rolls; spread warm rolls with cranberry sauce and mayonnaise. Serve burgers on rolls with lettuce.
