Revisited Recipe: Turkey Burgers with Green Apple & Brie

I have over 600 recipes (and growing) in the Kitchen Sink Diaries archive. Some of them have been tweaked and improved since their original post or were just really special to begin with. These revisited recipes are some of my all-time favorites that deserve a second look.

Turkey Burgers with Green Apple and Brie

It seems like summer came early this year and my husband and I have been spending most of our nights eating dinner outside in our backyard. Our grill has been getting a lot of use, which led to the revival of a favorite recipe for these turkey burgers with green apple and brie. In my opinion, a lot of turkey burgers turn out to be wannabe cheeseburgers, but the crunchy sweetness of the green apple and melty funky brie work much better with poultry than beef. As a result, this recipe is uniquely its own and will make a turkey burger lover out of even the most macho meat eater. It makes for a pretty inexpensive meal, and as a healthier burger alternative, it's a dish you can feel good about eating all summer long.

Turkey Burgers with Green Apple & Brie:
  • 3/4 lb. ground dark meat turkey
  • 2 burger buns
  • 1 Granny Smith apple
  • 3 oz. brie cheese
  • A few handfuls of baby arugula
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Serves two
