Turkey Meatloaf Burgers with Cranberry Aioli


As turkey day approaches (my favorite holiday), I can't help but start to crave those yummy flavors. I mean, who doesn't love turkey and cranberry sauce? These burgers are sure to be a family favorite and they are a dish you can feel good about eating since they're full of lean protein!


1. Combine aioli ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside. 


2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, carrot and celery and cook for 2 minutes. Turn heat off and allow to cool slightly. 


3. Place ground turkey in a large mixing bowl. Add cooked veggies, nuts, breadcrumbs, egg, milk, parsley, sage, salt and pepper and mix until well combined. Shape into eight patties. 



4. Warm a nonstick griddle or pan over medium heat and coat with cooking spray. Cook burgers for 4-5 minutes per side, or until cooked through. Top each with cheese and allow to melt slightly then turn heat off. 



5. Spread aioli onto each bun half and top 8 halves with burgers and spinach. Serve.
