Rachael and Cari Make a Turkey Burger

I found a recipe for a turkey burger in Rachael Ray's September 2008 magazine. I modified it just a little, and they came out tasting fantastic. This recipe yielded 6 small burgers (Rachael's original was for 8 servings).

You will need:
1 lb ground turkey
1/2 cup diced onions (Rachael's recipe called for scallions, but I couldn't find them)
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
Dash poultry seasoning
1 tbsp hamburger/grill seasoning
Sharp cheddar cheese
Spicy mustard
Package English muffins (I used the light, whole-grain version)
2 apples, cored and sliced
Spring mix lettuce (I bought the kind in a bag)
Cranberry sauce if desired

Mix the ground turkey with the onions and parsley, then add the poultry seasoning and grill seasoning. Shape into six small patties. You can use a grill pan or an outside grill to cook the patties--I used my George Foreman grill. While that is working, toast the English muffins. Spread mustard and cranberry sauce on the toasted muffins. Top with apple slice and spring mix lettuce. Add turkey burger and melted cheddar cheese.

My husband didn't like the cranberry sauce, and he didn't want the apple on his burger. We also ate the rest of the apple slices on the side, so if you're not going to do that, you only need one apple. It was wonderful, and I'll definitely make this again! (I'm not much of a cook, so this is saying a lot.)
