Thanksgiving On A Bun

Thanksgiving Turkey Burger



This is genius beyond genius.  Fantastically delicious.  I mean, DELICIOUS.  This COULD be a leftovers recipe that you could compile from your Thanksgiving dinner.  Slices of turkey, a spoonful of stuffing, cranberry sauce – all on a bun and BAM – the whole dinner in your mouth with every bite.

OR you can make it during the week easily from scratch.  I grilled some unique turkey burgers made with sage & thyme amongst other ingredients, Patti made some crazy good cranberry relish, then you could do a box of Stove Top Stuffing and BAM – again, Thanksgiving on a bun.

Either way you go, this is a MUST do.  We’ve already discussed this becoming a regular in our house.  I wish I could take credit for this, but I had almost nothing to do with it. This is the brainchild of my creative wife, Patti.  She is constantly coming up with amazing creations, unique recipes, delicious meals for me and the kids and anyone else that walks in our door.

She takes anything ordinary and makes it extraordinary – on a daily basis.

I’ll let Patti fill in the recipe box because I really don’t know what she did when she created this Thanksgiving happiness on a bun.  And seriously, every bite really DOES taste like Thanksgiving dinner.

It’s just magnificent.

I’m a lucky guy.

Thanksgiving On A Bun

Turkey burgers complete with stuffing and cranberry sauce. The only thing missing from this burger is pumpkin pie...hmm..that's an interesting thought...


  • 2 pounds ground turkey
  • 1/2 tbn fresh thyme
  • 1/2 tsn sage
  • 1 tsn granulated garlic
  • 1/2 tsn salt
  • 1/4 tsn pepper
  • 1/4 applesauce
  • 1/2 cup of stuffing per burger
  • 1/4 cup of cranberry sauce per burger


  1. Mix the turkey meat with the first 6 ingredients. Make into at least 5 good sized burgers.
  2. Grill your turkey burgers as you normally would.
  3. When they are finished, assemble your burger with a pile of stuffing, and a spread of cranberry sauce between a whole wheat bun.
