Cranberry Stuffed Turkey Burger

  • Author: Kelsey




  • 1 pound turkey
  • ½ teaspoon dried rubbed sage
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper


  • 1 cup cranberries
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • Salt to taste


  • In a medium bowl combine turkey, sage, thyme, salt and pepper until evenly combined and set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan combine cranberries, orange juice and coconut sugar, cover and let boil, stirring occasionally, until cranberries burst and sauce thickens (about 8-10 minutes).  Season with a pinch of salt. Let the sauce cool a bit then form burgers.
  • Separate turkey into 8 even balls. Flatten each ball of turkey, scoop 1 heaped tablespoon of the stuffing onto 4 of the patties. Top each one with another patty and pinch the outside to create a larger patty.
  • Place a skillet over medium high heat  and add a little oil to the pan.  Cook the burgers for 4-5 minutes per side until they are cooked through.
  • Serve on sweet potato buns or by themselves.
    • To make sweet potato buns slice sweet potatoes into 1/4 inch rounds, spray them with some cooking spray and a little salt and place them on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.  Roast them at 425 degrees for 15 minutes, then flip them and cook for another 10 minutes.
