In the fall, apple and sharp cheddar just go hand and hand…so, I whipped up a burger and made them the star of the show along with some sauteed red onion. Dinner is done…and it’s darn good too :).
This recipe makes four half-pound burgers.
2 pounds of ground turkey
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
about a tablespoon of poultry seasoning
1 cup of grated apple (I just grated one Fuji apple with my cheese grater)
1 red onion, chopped
salt and pepper
4 thick slices of sharp cheddar cheese (I used white cheddar)
a dollop of Dijon mustard
4 burger buns
Preheat your outdoor grill or indoor grill pan to medium-high heat.
Add about 2 tablespoons of EVOO, poultry seasoning and grated apple to your ground turkey. Divide turkey into four sections and make four patties. Grill patties about 8 minutes per side or until cooked through. About a minute before you pull them off the grill, add a slice of cheese to each patty.
Meanwhile, saute your chopped red onion in a drizzle of EVOO with a big pinch of salt and pepper. Saute until nice and tender (about 5 to 8 minutes).
Add your cooked burger patty to your burger bun that has been topped with Romaine and then top with sauteed red onion and a nice dollop of Dijon mustard.
A little apple in your patty along with the sharp cheddar…yum!
Bun, lettuce, patty, cheese, onion, Dijon and done.
