Cranberry-stuffed turkey burgers, chicken burgers

Try these burgers made with ground turkey or chicken and stuffed with cranberries, orange zest, and cheese.

In a medium bowl, mix together first five ingredients.  In a small bowl, mix together last three ingredients.  Divide the turkey mixture into six or eight equal portions, if you want three burgers divide the meat into six portions, for four burgers divide the meat into eight portions.  Flatten the meat portions into patties.  Top half of the patties with the cranberry mixture.  Top the cranberry mixture with the remaining patties.  Press around edges to seal.

Cook in a preheated skillet or on the grill over a medium heat until no longer pink.

Serving suggestions: toasted buns*, grilled or sauted onions, and/or lactofermented mayo.

Hint: wet hands before making the patties to prevent the meat from sticking to your hands.

*This recipe used gluten-free bread crumbs and hamburger buns made by Outside The Breadbox.  Their products can be purchased at a lovely little store in Loveland, CO called Granny's Gluten Free Zone.
