turkey apple burgers with cheddar and green salad

Our turkey burgers are moist and filled with fall flavors thanks to grated apple and fresh sage.

We topped them with crisp, thin slices of apple and sharp cheddar and wedged them between soft potato bread. To balance the meal, we added a refreshing green salad with our favorite Dijon vinaigrette. Cook, relax and enjoy!
