New England Turkey Burgers with the Works

New England Turkey Burgers with the Works

(I talked about this recipe here)

1/2 tablespoon light butter
1 medium apple, finely chopped
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 celery small stalks (from the heart), finely chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons poultry seasoning
salt and pepper
1 1/4 pounds ground turkey breast
1/4 cup parsley, finely chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup whole-berry cranberry sauce (homemade or prepared)
1 tablespoon orange zest
2 scallions, chopped
8 sourdough English muffins

In a nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium heat.
Add the apple, onion and celery; season with the poultry seasoning, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is tender, 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and let cool for 5 minutes. Wipe the skillet clean and return it to the stove.
Add the turkey and parsley to the apple mixture, season with salt and pepper and combine with a fork; form into 6 patties.
In the skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook the patties for about 6 minutes on each side, lowering the heat for the last 2 or 3 minutes.
While the burgers cook, mix the cranberry sauce, orange zest and scallions.
Toast the English muffins and spread lightly with butter, if desired.
Place the burgers on the English muffins, and top with cranberry relish.

makes 6 burgers, 8 HUs per burger (including cranberry relish).
