Turkey burgers all too often turn out dry, but we’ve discovered the sweet secret to keeping them moist: apples. The grated fruit is blended into the meat, which along with breadcrumbs, herbs, and garlic does an astonishing job of giving you everything you want in a patty. To continue the fruit-forward fall theme, we’ve also added a salad to the side that incorporates cranberries, walnuts, and a lemon dressing.*Please note that this recipe may be packaged with samples that contain peanuts, tree nuts and milk.

Heat a large drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat (use an ovenproof pan if you have one). Add burgers to pan and cook until browned on bottom, 4-5 minutes. Flip burgers, then place pan in oven. (TIP: Transfer burgers to a baking sheet if your pan is not ovenproof.) Cook until no longer pink in center, about 10 minutes.
