Thanksgiving Flavored Turkey Burgers


Thanksgiving Flavored Turkey BurgersThanksgiving Flavored Turkey Burgers Ingredients:

1/4 cup butter
1 onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
3 pounds ground turkey breast
1 (6 ounce) package chicken-flavored dry bread stuffing mix
2 eggs
16 hamburger buns, split
1 (16 ounce) can cranberry sauce
whipped cream cheese

Thanksgiving Flavored Turkey Burgers Directions:

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 Thanksgiving flavored 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.

Cheesy Bacon Wrapped Turkey Rollups

Cheesy Bacon Wrapped Turkey Rollups

Cheesy Bacon Wrapped Turkey RollupsCheesy Bacon Wrapped Turkey Rollups Ingredients:

8 turkey breast cutlets, turkey breasts cut open and pounded to an even 1/4-inch thickness (about 1 pound)
freshly ground black pepper
3 garlic cloves, finely minced or grated
2 teaspoons dry basil (or 2 tablespoons fresh basil, finely chopped)
8 slices Provolone cheese
16 slices ham, thin
16 slices bacon, thin

Cheesy Bacon Wrapped Turkey Rollups Instructions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Place turkey cutlets on a sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil and divide the seasonings evenly between each piece (salt, pepper, garlic, and basil). Put one slice Provolone cheese on top of each turkey cutlet and two slices of ham on next.

Roll up the cutlet tightly to form a log; roll them up so they’re shorter not longer (it all depends how your turkey breasts pounded out.) Then wrap two slices of bacon around the rolled up cutlet, being careful to keep the turkey tightly wrapped.

Roll the aluminum foil up around the turkey cutlet so it’s sealed tight.

Put on a baking sheet and cook in preheated oven at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and, being careful of the steam, open the foil and roll the cutlet out onto the baking sheet; discard the foil.

Turn the oven up to 400 degrees and put the exposed bacon-wrapped cutlets back in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until the bacon is browned.

Makes 8 cheesy bacon wrapped turkey rollups, but is easily doubled, tripled, or more.

You can also cut the turkey cutlets into smaller sizes and use this for an appetizer, rather than a buffet entree.
