Turkey Burger with Green Apple

Stephanie Heitmeier


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 I can say is yum! The smell of the maple syrup while grilling made my taste buds water. The burger is so juicy thanks to the addition of shredded apples. We did top ours with a bit of the mayo/Dijon mustard/maple syrup mixture and highly recommend you do too. The melted brie tops the burger perfectly! The Test Kitchen

How to Make Turkey Burger with Green Apple


  1. Peel and shred/grate apple. Combine with ground pork, turkey, maple syrup, cubed butter, seasoning, salt, and pepper. Form into ten mini patty burgers.
  2. Grill till desired doneness - last minute top with brie cheese and melt slighty.
  3. Garnish with lettuce, tomato or avocado.
  4. 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.
  5. ***note - take the rind off of the brie cheese.
