Stuffed Turkey Burgers with Cranberry Ketchup
All the flavors of Thanksgiving in a burger—what could be better? Pair with some baked sweet potato or butternut squash “fries.”
1 tablespoon olive oil
½ cup finely minced onion
1 tablespoon very finely chopped fresh rosemary
¾ pound ground turkey
¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
½ teaspoon coarse sea salt
½ cup Classic Bread Stuffing
2 hamburger buns
For the Cranberry Ketchup:
2 spoonfuls Cranberry Chutney
2 same-size spoonfuls ketchup
1. Heat the olive oil in a small skillet over low heat.
2. Add the onions and rosemary and cook for about 10 minutes, or until quite soft and sweet.
3. Let the onion mixture cool a bit and then put in a large mixing bowl with the turkey, salt, and pepper. Mush the ingredients together with a wooden spoon or your hands.
4. Form a quarter of the mixture into a thin patty. Mound half of the stuffing in the center of the patty. Take another quarter of the mixture, form it into a patty, and place on top, sealing the edges so that all the stuffing is snug inside. Repeat with the remaining turkey and stuffing.
5. Preheat your grill or broiler. Cook the burgers for 5 minutes on the first side, then flip and cook for 4 more minutes or until the burgers are browned and firm.
6. Whisk together the cranberry chutney and ketchup.
7. Cut the buns in half and grill alongside the burgers.
8. Spread the buns with the cranberry ketchup, tuck in the burgers, and go to town.
