  • 2 cups prepared Stove Top stuffing for turkey or leftover stuffing
  • 1 head green leaf lettuce
  • 1 lb. Nature's Basket ground turkey

  • 2 tsp. vegetable oil
  • 4 St. Pierre brioche burger buns
  • 1 cup Heinz gravy – home-style roasted turkey
  • 1 cup Giant Eagle whole berry cranberry sauce


  Prep Time: 10 min. • Cook Time: 15 min.

Prepare stuffing according to the package directions or use leftover stuffing. Let cool to room temperature. Separate the lettuce leaves, wash and pat dry.

Combine stuffing with ground turkey and eggs. Divide mixture into 4 patties. Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add vegetable oil. Add turkey patties and cook, turning occasionally, until nicely browned and cooked through, about 6 minutes per side.*

While the turkey burgers are cooking, toast the brioche buns and heat the gravy in a small saucepan.

Spread the bottom bun with cranberry sauce, then layer on the lettuce, turkey burger, gravy, and the top bun. Serve with lots of napkins.

*For food safety, cook ground turkey to an internal temperature of 165°F.
