Thanksgiving Burger

I've made Thanksgiving Burgers before, but when my friend Colleen posted a different variation, I had to try it. I really loved that hers was more of a all-inclusive patty rather than the messier option of having the extras on TOP of the burger.

Colleen mentioned omitting the gravy in favor of cheese; I chose to use both!

I had wanted to serve these with sweet potato fries to be a little more Thanksgiving-y, but the bag I thought I had in my freezer turned out to be regular fries. Oh well.

Thanksgiving Burgers
slightly adapted from Cooking This and That; originally adapted from Taste of Home
  • 1 pounds ground turkey
  • 1 cup whole berry cranberry sauce
  • 1 cup stuffing mix, dry
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar
  • 1/2 cup turkey gravy, warmed
  • 4 sandwich thins or hamburger buns
In large bowl, mix together turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing mix, cheese, and thyme. Form into 4 patties. Grill over medium-high heat, about 6-7 minutes a side or until cooked through. Top with gravy and serve immediately on buns.


  1. These were great! I didn't have cranberry sauce, but did have frozen cranberries, so I used those instead. This is definitely a make-again recipe.

  2. DELICIOUS!!!!
