- Form mixture into 4 patties and set aside.
- In a small saucepan, mix together the chili sauce and apple jelly.
- Put saucepan over medium heat; cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally; set aside to cool slightly.
- Spray broiler pan with cooking spray.
- Broil patties 6 inches from heat for 4 to 6 minutes.

We loved the combination of turkey with the other favors! I followed the apple pie spice link in the ingredients list, and made my own, and it was a little heavy on the cardamom, but the spices were delicious. We also used our George Foreman grill, with good results. Baked beans went really well on the side. Definitely something we'll make again!
These burgers are very nearly like ones served at a local restaurant. The patties were very moist and tender but my favorite part is the sauce. Sweet and tangy which works very well. I broiled them but will probably try them on the grill next time. Thanks Nurse Di.
We made these burgers the other night for dinner. We thought they were delicious. I gilled them on the old George Foreman and that worked out fine. The apples and onions in the burgers made them moist and flavorful. I used 1/4 t. apple pie spice and I may add more next time. The sauce was expectedly sweet and was a great topping for the burger. Thanks for a new and different burger recipe.
