1 Pound Ground Turkey
1 Large Egg
1/4 Cup Bread Crumbs, from lightly toasted Martin’s Butter Bread
1/4 Cup Onion, finely chopped
1/2 Teaspoon Dried Sage (or 1 ½ Teaspoons Fresh, chopped)
2 Teaspoons Chopped Fresh Rosemary (or 2/3 Teaspoon Dried)
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1/8 Teaspoon Black Pepper
3 Cups Mrs. Martin’s Potatobred Stuffing Recipe, prepared
6 Slices Provolone Cheese
6 Tablespoons Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce, prepared
6 Martin’s Dinner Potato Rolls
Place ground turkey, egg, bread crumbs, onion, sage, rosemary, salt, and pepper in a mixing bowl. Mix until well combined. Divide mixture into 6 equal portions and shape into burger patties. (Tip: You can form the patties using a 1/3 dry measuring cup to ensure equal sized portions.)
Heat 1-2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add burger patties and cook until burgers are cooked through, approximately 12-15 minutes, flipping halfway through.
Form prepared stuffing* into 6 equal sized portions and place one atop each burger in the pan. Top with provolone cheese and heat, covered, until cheese has melted. *To prepare stuffing from scratch: Follow ingredient measurements found here: https://potatorolls.com/recipes/mrs-martins-famous-stuffing. Combine stuffing cubes, herbs, sautéed onions and celery, 1-2 cups chicken broth, salt and pepper. Place mixture in a baking dish coated with non-stick cooking spray and bake at 350 degrees for about 20 to 30 minutes. (Alternately, you can cook on stove-top in a large skillet, using directions show in above recipe.)
Slice Dinner Potato Rolls in half and toast until golden. Butter the rolls and top each with a turkey burger and a spoonful of cranberry sauce. Serve.
