Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate.

  • Heat the butter in a skillet over medium-low heat, and cook and stir the onion and celery until the onion is soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.

  • Place the cooked onion and celery in a large bowl with the ground turkey, stuffing mix, and eggs; mix to thoroughly combine. Form the mixture into 16 patties. Unlike hamburger, these patties will not change shape while cooking, so make them even in size.

  • Grill the turkey burgers on the preheated grill until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Place each patty on a hamburger bun, and top with cranberry sauce and a dollop of whipped cream cheese to serve.

I made these for dinner tonight. Good but not exciting. I'd make them again if I had the ingredients on hand but I don't think I'd go out of my way to make them. Not crave-able. Read More

This recipe caught my eye but to be honest I wasn't really enthusiastic about it and it sat in my recipe box for quite a while before I actually made a point of trying it. It sounded like a good base recipe but I was expecting my review to say "it needed something extra". Well I finally made them tonight and all I can say is WOW! I was very pleasantly surprised that this simple burger ended up being very tasty and unique. Only changes were to add a clove of garlic to the onions and celery and a little poultry seasoning (Bell's) and some dried thyme to the meat and I used egg whites (from the carton) in place of whole eggs. I scaled this recipe down to three burgers using about a half pound of turkey. The burgers were so moist and delicious and although I expected to want "something else" to pep up the cranberry sauce and cream cheese the two toppings really worked well together and complimented the flavors of the stuffing mix and turkey without overpowering them. A wonderful recipe and one that I will make again and again! Thanks Hez! Read More

I made this for dinner tonight- I only had 1 lb of ground turkey and no celery. I used one egg and 3 oz of stuffing. Excellent! My family loved it and we will be eating it again soon! Read More

I tried this as a meatloaf. Added the poultry season and sage. Also made a cream of mushroom gravy. It was the bomb. I dont rate recipes because everyone has their own taste but I have to say this is a great idea. Thanks for sharing it!!! Read More

I didn't think these were especially Thanksgiving-flavored but they were still delicious. I would never have thought to put whipped cream cheese on a burger but it was really good especially with the cranberry sauce. We will make these again. Read More

Very good! Used extra lean ground turkey...sauteed red onion and celery in olive instead of butter. Also added turkey stuffing mix. And to make it better added about 1/2 tsp of poultry seasoning sage and dried thyme. Very Thanksgiving -y tasting. Thanks for a tasty turkey burger! Read More

We thought these were really good - definitely had a strong"Thanksgiving" flavor! I made exactly as the recipe stated and served on wheat buns. We weren't crazy about the cream cheese though. Next time I will try with a whole berry cranberry aoli. Read More

Really tasty. I used a cornbread stuffing mix and didn't use any butter to saute veggies. Added poultry seasoning and served this with some sauted broccoli slaw along with the cream cheese and cranberry sauce. I'll make this again Read More
