"Sharing our leftovers..."

The 'S. Benz Thanksgiving Burger'

  • Tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1 large garlic clove chopped
  • 4-5 leaves sage minced
  • 1.5  pounds ground turkey breast
  • 3-4 ounce chicken-flavored dry bread stuffing mix
  • 1 eggs
  • 6-8 hamburger buns, split
  • 1 (16 ounce) can cranberry sauce
  • whipped cream cheese
  • sprinkle of poultry seasoning


  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  • Heat the butter in a skillet over medium-low heat, stir the onion, celery and garlic until the onion is soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.
  • Place the cooked onion, celery and garlic in a large bowl with the ground turkey, stuffing mix, egg, poultry seasoning (optional) and sage; mix to thoroughly combine. Form the mixture into 6-8 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 5-8 minutes per side.

  • Place each patty on a hamburger bun, and top with cranberry sauce and a dollop of whipped cream cheese to serve.
