Apple, Horseradish Turkey Burgers

Recipe from Good Housekeeping Magazine
Adapted and Husband-Tested in Alice’s Kitchen

These turkey burgers are filled with apples, onions, horseradish and fresh herbs.  Serve these topped with your favorite mustard or chutney, a tomato, and fresh spinach.  I like them topped with shredded daikon radish.  Sauté some broccoli with a little garlic and some peppers and maybe make some brown rice to round out the meal for a healthy lunch.  (I imagine you could add other shredded veggies as well to the burgers, such as carrots or zucchini.)

1 pound ground turkey
2 Tablespoons prepared horseradish
1 apple, peeled and grated
½ onion, grated or minced
¾ teaspoon Kosher salt
2 Tablespoons minced fresh parsley or 1 Tablespoon minced fresh sage

Preheat broiler.  In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients well.  Shape the turkey mixture into 1-inch thick patties.  (I was able to make 6.) Spray rack in a broiling pan with nonstick cooking spray; place patties on the rack.  With broiling pan at closest position to source of heat, broil patties 4 minutes.  Turn patties; broil 5 to 6 minutes longer or until cooked through.
