About this Recipe

Turkey and cranberry sauce has always been a Christmas tradition in our house! These sliders are a great way to enjoy this taste combo without all the fuss! The cabbage adds a nice crunch without taking away from the bolder flavours.


1 lb Maple Leaf Prime Ground Turkey
1/4 cup dried breadcrumbs
1/4 cup diced onion
1 egg
1 clove garlic minced
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
8-10 cheddar cheese slices to top burgers
2-3 tbsp. Mayonnaise
1 cup shredded cabbage
1 cup home-made cranberry sauce (recipe below)
8-10 small dinner rolls
Cranberry Sauce Ingredients:
1 Pkge (227 g) frsh cranberries
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 grated zest of one orange


Directions for Turkey Burgers
In a medium bowl, use a fork to gently combine ground turkey with breadcrumbs, onion, egg, chili powder, garlic, cumin, salt and pepper. Mix well, and form into small 1 in. thick patties. Allow patties to chill on a large dish or platter in the fridge while making cranberry sauce (see recipe below).
Once sauce is made, remove burgers from the fridge. Using a medium-size non-stick skillet, put a small amount of oil in the pan to just coat the bottom. Set on medium-high heat and allow burgers to cook for approx. 3- 5 min. on each side (till done), topping with cheese for the final minute of cooking. Once burgers are done, place on bun; top with mayo, cabbage and cranberry sauce.
Serves 8-10 mini sliders.

Directions for Cranberry Sauce
Put all ingredients in a small uncovered saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Let boil until berries begin to pop, approx. 5-7 minutes. Set sauce aside and allow to cool, while burgers are cooking.


Burger mixture and cranberry sauce may be prepared and refrigerated a few hours ahead of cooking time. Burgers can also be grilled rather than fried.
Left over cranberry sauce can be used in muffins, loaves or as a side dish or condiment for chicken or turkey dishes.
