Turkey + Apple Burger

I am in an apple mood and have been putting them in everything lately.  They are the perfect fall fruit and add a small touch of sweetness to savory dishes.

Last week I made easy and healthy turkey+apple burgers for dinner.  These are a perfect week night meal because they're quick and healthy.

My husband actually said this was the best turkey burger he had ever eaten.  The fact that he arrived home at 8:30pm after a 2 hour plane ride and no food since lunch had nothing to do with his assessment.  Nothing.  They were the best turkey burgers ever.

Turkey + Apple Burger {serves 4}
-one package of ground turkey {these usually contain just over a pound of turkey so each burger will be about 5 ounces.  I buy the 93% lean turkey but if you want a super low fat meal, buy the all breast package}
-1/2 an apple, peeled and diced into teeny tiny pieces
-a heaping tablespoon of dijon mustard
-a generous splash of worcestershire sauce

1. Mix everything together and form into four flat patties.
2. Cook on the grill or an indoor grill pan.  I actually prefer these burgers on an indoor grill pan because they are fairly moist and the grill is a little too tough on them.  Grill for about 7 minutes each side or until completely cooked through {no rare burgers when I am using poultry!}

3. Enjoy with your favorite condiments.  For me this is cheese, pickles, a little raw onion, and ketchup.  Perfection.
