The Easiest Thanksgiving Turkey Burgers Ever!

If there's one thing I can say with confidence, its that I really love to eat. But it's not just that I love to eat, It's that like to eat comfort food. Unfortunately however, many comfort foods tend to make an appearance on many dieters' do-not-eat lists due to their high fat, sodium, and carbohydrate content. What's a girl who no longer fits into her favorite clothes to do? The answer is NOT to give up satisfying foods and replace them with boiled chicken and unsalted steamed vegetables. The ticket is to find foods that rub your appetite in all the right places (that's what she said), but are actually pretty good for you.

This is where the turkey burger comes in. Now what's better than an amazing turkey burger? Thanksgiving. Oh yes. You can have a miniature Thanksgiving feast without even dirtying a pan. And if you don't have a woman to clean dishes for you, why make a mess. JUST KIDDING. FYI, I'm a girl, so please don't leave hateful feminist comments. I will not approve them anyway.

Anyway, jump aboard the Turkey Express and ride it all the way to Yumville Valley!

1 pound 93% lean ground turkey (Don't forget, just because it's turkey, it doesn't mean it's less fattening than ground beef. 85% fat is 85% fat regardless of what animal it comes from!)
1/2 box stuffing mix
cranberry sauce (For the love of God... NOT the jellied crap. Go for the gold [my nod to the Olympics] and get the whole berry kind!)
Buns or whatever

1. Mix dry stuffing in with ground turkey. Mold into patties. You should get about five. If you get four, though, I'm not judging... your secret is safe with me!

2. Grill or pan-fry until your patties are cooked through. Seriously... make sure this is cooked because I don't want to see you all dropping like flies from Salmonella Poisoning.

3. Assemble. Use cranberry sauce instead of ketchup. You won't be disappointed!!

4. Enjoy this with the pumpkin pie recipe below. The whole meal will make your eyes roll to the back of your head as if you've just had the most pleasurable experience of you life. Pin It
