Savory Mini Apple Turkey Burgers

Serves 4

Ingredients

For carmelized onion
1/2 tsp extra virgin olive
1/2 onion, peeled and thinly sliced

For burgers
1/2 apple (divided)
1/2 lb. lean ground turkey meat
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/8 teaspoon sage
1/8 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
Dash black pepper

For toppings
1 oz. Brie (optional)
4 lettuce leaves

Directions

  • Preheat grill.
  • Heat olive oil in a small frying pan over medium heat. Once heated, add onion and sauté for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown and sweet.
  • While onion is cooking, shred apple with a peeler or cheese grater so you have fine, thin slices of apple.
  • Mix together burger ingredients: turkey meat, Dijon, sage, thyme, salt, pepper and 1/2 of the apple. Save the rest of the apple for toppings. Form meat into patties (about 4, 1.5 oz each)
  • Grill burgers on the grill for about 5-8 minutes each side or until internal temperature is 165 F. Remove burgers from grill.
  • Place burgers on top of lettuce. Then top burgers with remaining apple, onions and Brie. Wrap lettuce around burger like a bun. Yum.

Make Ahead Tip: If you are meal prepping them ahead of time then pack the lettuce in a baggie on the side. These also freeze well.
