Summer has officially begun. One of our favorite summertime activities is swimming at the pool with Aunt Sheryl and Uncle Dale and eating burgers. One of our favorite burgers is a turkey burger jazzed up with apple and celery. Uncle Dale fired up the grill and cooked my special burgers and it was great. This is similar to a recipe that Rachel Ray published. We tweaked a few of the ingredients and put them on the outdoor grill. My favorite way to eat these is on toasted english muffins, but when we are grilling out, a toasted hamburger bun is great. By the way, the cranberry mayo is so good, I serve a straw with my burgers and cranberry mayo!
Turkey Burgers with Cranberry Mayonnaise
2 pounds White Meat Ground Turkey
2 Granny Smith Apple (chopped)
2 Ribs Celery (chopped)
2 Rounded Tablespoons Ground Sage
1 Teaspoon Salt
½ Teaspoon Black Pepper
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Gently, shape into 6 patties. Grill over a medium fire until done.
To serve, place a cooked patty on a toasted hamburger bun or sourdough English muffin. Garnish with Cranberry Mayonnaise.
To prepare Cranberry Mayonnaise, mix 1 cup good quality mayo (I like Hellman’s) with 1 can jellied cranberry sauce.
