Step 1

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl with the ground turkey. Let sit for about 15 minutes before cooking. After the wait time, form patties with meat and cook until no longer pink.

Slice apples so they are thin. Put butter in a sauce pan, melt. Once melted, add apples. Sprinkle with the spices and toss with a spoon while they cook. Cook on high, stirring often. Cook until they are a little browned and still a bit crunchy (not mushy).

Toast bun. Put a little mayo on each bun slice. Melt cheddar cheese on burgers, finish off with a few apple slices, top with other half of bun.
