Apple Maple Turkey Burgers with Maple-Dijon Sauce

I am on such a burger kick. I have a slew of slew of new recipes and this one was so unique I had to give it a try. Sounds a bit odd and I had to buy some of the ingredients just for this recipe. They came together super fast, no chopping which I always like too.
DO you have any burgers that are out of the ordinary? I am always on the hunt for some new recipes to add to my collection

Apple Maple Turkey Burgers with Maple-Dijon Sauce

borrowed from The Food Network


For Maple-Dijon Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons real maple syrup

For Burgers:

  • 1 1/4 pounds ground turkey breast
  • 1/4 cup real bacon bits
  • 1/2 cup chunky applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons real maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Hamburger Buns
  • Hamburger condiments


Set up grill for direct cooking over medium heat. Oil grate when ready to start cooking.

For Maple-Dijon Sauce: In a small bowl, stir to combine mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, and 2 tablespoons maple syrup; set aside.

For Turkey Burgers: In a medium bowl, mix together all ingredients for burgers. Wet hands to prevent sticking and shape into 4 patties.

Place burgers on hot oiled grill for 5 to 6 minutes per side or until done.

Serve on buns with traditional burger condiments and a dollop of maple-Dijon sauce.

Note - Indoor: Prepare burgers as directed. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat. When oil is hot add burgers and cook 5 to 7 minutes per side or until done.


These had a really different, unique flavor. I really liked them for something different. They were very juicy and I really liked the sauce....A LOT! They could have used some lettuce or something to make the picture look better because they dont look so hot, but seriously they are really delicious. The hint of bacon with the hint of apples really comes through.
