I came up with this interesting burger and the kids loved it! My kids love mini burgers but these can easily be made either way.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

All we can say is yum! No ordinary grilled burger recipe here. Shredded green apple, smoky maple seasoning and a touch of maple syrup are mixed with ground turkey and pork. The apple helps to keep these burgers moist. Silky melted Brie cheese tops the burger perfectly. They can be served as an appetizer or main meal.

    The first time I made this I did not top the burger with any condiments. You could mix a little mayo, Dijon mustard, and maple syrup together and top with that.
