Is anyone else as crazy about Thanksgiving as we are? We’re happy to indulge in November’s favorite foods all year long. You will be, too, after trying this customer favorite from the HelloFresh Hall of Fame. Featuring turkey burgers slathered in cranberry mayo, with a cranberry-studded salad on the side, it’ll make you thankful that tasty flavor combos are always in season.
Wash and dry all produce. Preheat grill to high or oven or toaster oven to 400 degrees. Pick leaves from sage; discard stems. Mince leaves until you have 1½ tsp. Peel shallot, then grate into a medium bowl. TIP: Alternatively, finely mince shallot.
Add turkey, sage, ½ tsp thyme, and ¼ cup panko (we sent more thyme and panko) to bowl with shallot. Season with salt and pepper (we used ½ tsp kosher salt). Mix with your hands until just combined, then form into two patties slightly wider than the buns.
Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add turkey patties and cook until no longer pink in center, 5-6 minutes per side. TIP: If grilling, grill patties on cleaned and oiled grates over direct heat.
Meanwhile, stir together mayonnaise and 1 TBSP cranberry jam (we sent more) in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Split buns and place in oven (or toaster oven) until golden, 3-5 minutes. TIP: If grilling, toast buns on grill over indirect heat.
Toss together mixed greens, dried cranberries, pecans, 1 TBSP balsamic vinegar (we sent more), and a drizzle of olive oil in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
Spread cranberry mayo on buns. Fill each with a turkey patty and a small handful of salad. Serve with remaining salad on the side.
