Recipe Details


Apples and Cheddar are a classic matchup, pairing sweet with salty and crunchy with gooey. We’re applying the flavor duo to this burger anchored by cozy fall favorites. The warmly spiced turkey patties are made juicy with a splash of apple cider and freshly grated Gala apple. Piled onto brioche buns with a sauté of Brussels sprouts, sliced apple, and onion cooked down with more cider, this dinner’s everything we want on a cool November evening.

Cooking Steps

  1. Prepare Ingredients

    Prepare Ingredients

    Halve buns crosswise. Rinse apple, halve, and remove and discard core. Thinly slice half. Using the large holes of a box grater, grate remaining half; alternatively, finely chop. Peel onion, halve, and thinly slice. Pat turkey dry with paper towel.

  2. Form Burgers

    Form Burgers

    In a large bowl, combine spice mix, grated apple, turkey, 1 tablespoon apple cider, and as much cayenne pepper as desired (it's spicy!). Season with ½ teaspoon salt and black pepper as desired. Using your hands, mix well, then form into 2 equal patties, about 1-inch thick. Using your thumb, create a dimple on top of each. Place burgers on a plate, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until ready to sear.

  3. Cook Onions and Brussels Sprouts

    Cook Onions and Brussels Sprouts

    While burgers chill, heat butter and 1 teaspoon olive oil in a medium pan over medium-high heat. When butter is foamy, add onion and cook until beginning to soften, about 3 minutes. Add Brussels sprouts and cook, stirring continuously to avoid burning, until soft and beginning to caramelize, 8-10 minutes.

  4. Cook Apple

    Cook Apple

    Add sliced apple and remaining apple cider to pan with Brussels sprouts over medium heat, and season with ½ teaspoon salt and black pepper as desired. Cook, stirring continuously, until apple is softened and liquid has reduced entirely, about 5 minutes. Transfer hash to 2 serving plates and cover loosely with foil to keep warm.

  5. Sear Burgers

    Sear Burgers

    Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium nonstick pan over medium-high heat. When oil is shimmering, add burgers and sear until browned on bottom, 3-4 minutes. Flip and top with Cheddar, then reduce heat to medium and cover pan. Sear until cheese is melted and burgers are cooked through and no longer pink, 5-6 minutes more. Transfer to a plate and set aside to rest for at least 5 minutes.

  6. Plate Turkey Burgers

    Plate Turkey Burgers

    While burgers rest, wipe pan from burgers clean and return to medium-high heat. Add buns cut-side down and toast until light golden and warmed through, 2-3 minutes. Transfer to plates with hash. Layer bun bottoms with burgers and a spoonful of hash. Spread mustard on bun tops, dividing evenly, then top burgers. Dig in!
