I’m a big fan of Rachael Ray’s Book of Burger. This recipe comes from that book, plus my husband made the English muffins! I loved this burger because it wasn’t trying to make turkey taste like beef and I could smother it in the cranberry mayo.
*Naptime tip: Use your kid-free time to chop your apple and veg, split your muffins and mix up the mayo. Dinner will come together so quick!
