I made these when I was looking for something interesting to do with ground turkey. They are very moist and delicious on home-baked bread buns.

  • Combine the white bread, garlic, and boiling water in a mixing bowl; mash with a fork to combine. Add the turkey, red onion, cranberries, Brie, rosemary, ketchup, salt, and pepper; mix thoroughly with your hands. Shape the mixture into 6 patties.

  • Cook under the preheated broiler until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 6 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

I love the flavors of this burger it is so gourmet tasting! The only changes I made were instead of mixing ketchup in with the meat etc. I mixed 2 tbsp. of whole cranberry cranberry sauce and I used breadcrumbs instead of a slice of bread. The results were excellent. I also topped the burger with some cranberry sauce and a few slices of brie. FANTASTIC! Read More

We felt this needed more spice. I used panko breadcrumbs instead of a torn slice of bread but that was the only substitution. If I made these again I'd add some worcestershire sauce maybe some more garlic Read More

Amazing! I did make a few changes though. I added breadcrumbs when I realized the piece of bread was not allowing the meat to clump together. I also added more cranberries and cheese. I would highly recommend going light with the rosemary as it is a very strong herb. My burgers were overpowered with rosemary (which my husband loved me not so much) but the turkey burger was still delicious. Next time around I will go light on the rosemary. Read More

The best Turkey burger I've ever had. Made exactly per the recipe with ONE change. Since some of the other reviewers had used cranberry sauce instead of ketchup I thought I'd kick it up with 2 T of cranberry horseradish sauce instead of either ketchup or cranberry sauce. 5 stars! Read More

I made a major substitute by using goat cheese instead of the brie which I'm not a huge fan of and since I love goat cheese these were very very good. I did happen to leave out the ketchup by mistake and I'm not sure if that was the reason I found the burgers to be a bit bland. As another reviewer mentioned I thought the rosemary flavor was a bit strong (and I love rosemary!) so next time I think I'll use a combination of rosemary thyme and some rubbed sage. Still the cranberries and cheese (whichever kind you end up using) make fabulous additions to a turkey burger. Read More

I also omitted the ketchup and subbed 2 TBSP whole cranberry sauce. I subbed bread crumbs for the bread and popped the patties in the freezer for a few minutes before cooking them up on the griddle. A great recipe thanks! Read More

This recipe is amazing though I did make a few changes based on other comments. I used 3/4 cup of bread crumbs instead of bread. 1/2 cup of dried cranberries that were soaked in hot water. 2 tbsp of mustard instead of ketchup since no one seemed to like it. Mustard did add extra flavor. We dont like Rosemary so I added 1 teaspoon of honey which was amazing! Also make sure you serve this with a pineapple salsa--it makes all the difference. If you need a quick recipe 1 cup pineapple 1 cup papaya 1 1/2 cup of your favorite tomato salsa. Next time I make this I will brown the onions and increase the cranberries even more. Read More

These were DELICIOUS!!! I made a raspberry dijon to 'dress them' by mixing some melted raspberry preserves with whole grain dijon mustard and they were fantastic. I'd love to make these for company and next time I'll use my grill pan to cook them. YUM! Read More

These were really good. The kids gobbled them up! I subbed in mozza as it was on hand and used gluten free bread as we have a celiac in the house. I also grilled them on the BBQ. I would add a few more cranberries next time as they were a bit lost in the other flavours. Read More

Fixed as written but couldn't really taste the Brie. We cooked them on the grill but the cheese did not ooze out and they stayed together very well. Next time I will put the Brie in the middle for a stuffed burger. Otherwise the favors were great. The cranberries made it taste kind of like thanksgiving turkey! Read More
