About This Recipe:

{The Burger}

Made with ground turkey and fragrant herbs like rosemary and sage, these burger patties have all the flavors of your favorite holiday roast. At a slightly smaller-than-average patty size, you might consider these “sliders,” but with the generous amount of toppings, they’re still plenty filling.

Want a tip to get perfectly portioned patties? Use a 1/3 dry measuring cup to form your patties—you’ll get 6 equally sized burgers from 1 lb. of ground turkey.

{The Stuffing}

What’s Thanksgiving turkey without the accompanying stuffing? Using Mrs. Martin’s Famous Stuffing recipe (hint: it’s printed on the back of your bag of Martin’s Potatobred Soft Cubed Stuffing), we mixed up some savory stuffing with add-ins like sautéed onions and celery, sage, thyme, and chicken broth. The prepared stuffing, gently packed into small mounds, makes a great stackable topping for the grilled turkey burgers.

{The Cheese}

The next step is adding the cheese (a necessity for just about any burger). There is nothing particularly noteworthy here; we used a mild provolone cheese to ensure it complements but doesn’t compete with the more prominent flavors of the fragrant herbs and cranberry sauce.

{The Cranberry Sauce}

Another must-have for any Thanksgiving Dinner. We love using whole berry cranberry sauce because of its vibrant appearance and tart bursts of flavor. Look for prepared cranberry sauce (canned or jarred) in your grocery store or make your own using a recipe like this one from

{The Rolls}

Every family dinner (especially around the holiday season) deserves a nice warm batch of Martin’s Dinner Potato Rolls to make it more than a meal. So it only makes sense to incorporate them into this all-in-one pre-holiday meal to make the Thanksgiving theme complete.


And there you have it—the whole Thanksgiving Dinner menu wrapped up into one tidy burger recipe. We hope you’ll give it a try and let us know what you think!
