Midweek Mealtime - Apple Cheddar Turkey Burgers

Wednesday, July 08, 2015

Sometimes you just want a gourmet burger, you know?  Or, actually, any burger...but a gourmet burger just sounds so much like an indulgence.  Now, don't get me wrong, I definitely eat red meat.  Unfortunately, this girl has no red meat in the house at the moment, so I figured I'd try to jazz up some turkey breast.  Um, YUM!

For those of you Fixers out there, I counted one burger as 1 yellow (because I used the thin muffins), 1 blue, 1 red, and 1 purple (I ate the rest of the apple.)

Oh, and a tip:  get the firmest Granny Smith apples and the sharpest cheddar you can find.  The flavor combination is outstanding!


  • 1 pound lean ground turkey breast
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt
  • ½ teaspoon dried sage
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, sliced
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded SHARP cheddar cheese
  • 6 multigrain light English muffins, split
  • Mustard of choice for topping 


  1. Combine turkey, onion, spices, and beaten egg.  (side note:  I find it easiest with my hands)
  2. Heat skillet on medium high heat.  Divide meat mixture into 6 patties.
  3. Cook burgers until browned on each side and cooked through.
  4. Toast English muffins.
  5. Assemble burgers as such:  muffin, burger, apple slices, cheese, mustard, and top of muffin.
