Apple-Cheddar Turkey Burgers

I found the recipe for these burgers in the current issue of the Rachael Ray magazine. They were supposed to be made with english muffins but I forgot to get those at the store, so we just used rolls instead. The recipe also calls for mixing mustard into the cranberry sauce, and I tried it, but I much preferred the plain cranberry sauce on my burger.

Apple-Cheddar Turkey Burgers
Serves 4

2 pounds ground turkey
4 scallions finely chopped
1/3 cup flat leaf parsley chopped
1 tablespoon grill seasoning
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 apple cut into 12 slices
8 slices extra-sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup whole berry cranberry sauce
2 tablespoons grainy mustard
4 english muffins, split and toasted
8 leaves of lettuce

In a bowl, combine the turkey, scallions, parsley, grill seasoning and poultry seasoning. Form into 4 patties.

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Add the patties and cook for 6 minutes on each side. Top each with 3 apple slices and 2 cheese slices, tent with foil and cook until the cheese melts.

In a small bowl, mix together the cranberry sauce and mustard, slather on the tops of the muffins. pile 2 lettuce leaves on each muffin bottom, top with patties and the tops of the muffins.
