With any luck, I will be back to work by this time next week. If that happens, I am scheduled to work on Thanksgiving and the day after. The holiday pay is well worth it, but I still miss Thanksgiving dinner.

Thats why I am incorporating as many of those flavors into my meals before hand as possible. Last night, we madeThanksgiving Dinner Burgers. A seasoned turkey burger on a brioche bun with whole cranberry sauce, stuffing and gravy; it was like eating Thanksgiving dinner as a sandwich.

We had sweet potato fries and a Caesar salad for sides. Of course there was also leftover stuffing and gravy if we really wanted to splurge.

Thanksgiving Turkey Burgers


  • 2 c stuffing
  • 3 lbs ground turkey
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 TBSP chicken seasoning
  • 2 TBSP canola oil
  • 8 brioche buns
  • 1 c cranberry sauce
  • 1 c gravy


  1. Form 8 turkey patties from the ground turkey. Season with salt, pepper and chicken seasoning.
  2. Heat 1 TBSP oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add 4 patties to the pan. Cook for 5 minutes on each side. Repeat with remaining oil and patties.
  3. Toast the buns in a toaster oven.
  4. Assemble the burgers: Put cranberry sauce on the bottom of each bun. Place a turkey patty on top. Spoon stuffing and gravy on top of the patties. Cover the burger with the top of the bun.
  5. Serve with sweet potato fries and a salad.

Here in Michigan, opening day for firearm deer season was yesterday. Maybe I should have made venison chili or stew instead, but these burgers are what I wanted. You should have seen the look of shock on my husbands face when I said Turkey Burgers while he was hanging his deer in the garage. He enjoyed dinner quite a it, and was just harassing me.

If you are in the mood for the flavors of Thanksgiving, but dont want the hassle of making a turkey and all the sides, I would recommend this recipe to you.
Let me know how it goes.
