Cranberry & Herb Turkey Burgers

June/July 2005

Your rating: None Average: 4.7 (30 votes)

Our usual problem with turkey burgers is the dry, chewy texture of the cooked meat. The usual solution is to add fat, but a little sautéed onion, dried cranberries and soaked couscous work even better without larding down this healthy main course. With sage and thyme, call it a summery answer to Thanksgiving dinner. If you like, serve with homemade Blueberry Ketchup.

Excellent!

These were awesome! As another reviewer mentioned, the burgers had all the components and wonderful flavors of Thanksgiving, but not so much that they would forever be deemed a Turkey Day burger. My only issue was trying to figure out how to serve them: On a bun? Open-faced? With baked fries? With Mashed potates and a vegetable? Nothing seemed like the appropriate accompaniment.

Moist, Full of flavor, Easy to make, Large portion size

This recipe is outstanding! Very moist and juicy. It makes big burgers, so be hungry! This is my goto recipe for turkey burgers. It tastes enough like Thanksgiving to be reminiscent of Thanksgiving, but not too much. If I don't tell my guests that it is a "Thanksgiving" burger, they just say, "This is the best turkey burger I've ever had!". Actually, they say it even when they know it is a burger with a theme! Awesome!
