And spinach with toasted pecans. This was a cook off winner in the brand name section of a Southern Living cookbook. It sounds interesting and that's why I'm posting it.

Great recipe. Made it tonight for family and everyone liked it even though they were skeptical when they heard what I was making. Sauce has too much mustard. I made as directed then added more cranberry sauce and it was much better. I would use half the amount of mustard next time. Even the toasted pecans worked which I thought was an odd addition as first. Will definitely make again. Great for a heart healthy meal or just a different spin on burger night.

These are absolutely delicious! A couple of changes I needed to make: substituting garlic powder for garlic salt, and onion salt for onion powder. It worked perfectly. Also - we had no whole cranberry sauce; so I whisked cranberry jelly until it was smooth, then added the mustard. I love to cook, and - like all of you, make adjustments to fit what's in the pantry, sometimes altering amounts, & adding an ingredient or two. Marg from GA

This is the best turkey burger I've ever had...and it is so easy to make! DH was impressed. Great mix of flavors...maybe a little heavy on the dijon for my taste but I'll just use a little more cranberry next time. Thanks...this is definitely a recipe we'll make again and again.
