Although it feels a bit more like winter here in Calgary this week, fall is a wonderful time of year to enjoy warm comfort meals. I wanted to give a few more of Udi's products a try and create an irresistible turkey burger. As turkey burgers are often a bit dry, I decided to add a few tasty elements like apple and cranberry to create a moist and sweet burger. And of course I couldn't leave it at that, so I tried the new trend of stuffing my burger with cheese. Topping it off with one of Udi's Gluten Free fluffy hamburger buns made it the perfect burger. The results were delictable! Even my husband who is a red meat fan when it comes to burgers asked if I was going to make more in bulk and freeze them. Hope you enjoy and it may leave you wanting more!
