For caramelized onion:

  • 1/2 tsp extra virgin olive
  • 1/2 onion, peeled and thinly sliced

For burgers:

  • 1/2 apple (divided)
  • 1/2 lb lean ground turkey meat
  • 1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon sage
  • 1/8 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • Dash black pepper

For toppings:

  • 1 oz Brie (optional)
  • 4 lettuce leaves


  1. Preheat grill.
  2. Heat olive oil in a small frying pan over medium heat. Once heated, add onion and saute for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown and sweet.
  3. While onion is cooking, shred apple with a peeler or cheese grater so you have fine, thin slices of apple.
  4. Mix together burger ingredients: turkey meat, djon, sage, thyme, salt, pepper and 1/2 of the apple. Save the rest of the apple for toppings. Form meat into patties (about 4, 1.5 oz each)
  5. Grill burgers on the grill for about 5-8 minutes each side or until internal temperature is 165 F. Remove burgers from grill.
  6. Place burgers on top of lettuce. Then top burgers with remaining apple, onions and Brie. Wrap lettuce around burger like a bun. Yum.



  • Omit toppings and apple. After burger is cooked, puree in blender with chicken broth until desired texture reached.


  • Omit apple and lettuce. Cooked onions will likely be tolerated but please check your surgeon’s guidelines.


  • Serve as is and consider adding baked sweet potato fries on the side.
