For the Turkey Patty:

  • 500g ground turkey (preferably thigh meat for juiciness)
  • 1 small onion, finely grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • A pinch of smoked paprika (optional)
  • Olive oil for cooking

For the Toppings:

  • 150g Brie cheese, sliced
  • Fresh arugula or spinach leaves
  • Sliced ripe tomatoes
  • Thinly sliced red onion

For the Cranberry Sauce:

  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • A pinch of salt


  • 4 burger buns, preferably brioche, toasted
  • Optional: Mayonnaise or mustard for spreading


Preparing the Turkey Patties:

  1. In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey, grated onion, minced garlic, salt, pepper, and smoked paprika (if using).
  2. Gently mix until just combined, being careful not to overwork the meat.
  3. Shape into 4 patties, making a small indent in the center of each patty to ensure even cooking.
  4. Chill in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes to help them hold their shape.

Preparing the Cranberry Sauce:

  1. In a small saucepan, combine the cranberries, orange juice, sugar, and salt.
  2. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently.
  3. Cook for 10-12 minutes, or until the cranberries have burst and the sauce has thickened.
  4. Remove from heat and let cool. The sauce will continue to thicken as it cools.

Cooking the Turkey Patties:

  1. Preheat a grill or skillet over medium-high heat and add a drizzle of olive oil.
  2. Cook the turkey patties for 5-6 minutes on each side or until fully cooked and juices run clear.
  3. In the last 2 minutes of cooking, add the Brie slices on top of each patty and cover with a lid to help the cheese melt.

Assembling the Burger:

  1. Spread a layer of mayonnaise or mustard on the bottom half of each toasted bun, if using.
  2. Place a handful of arugula or spinach on the bottom bun.
  3. Add the cooked turkey patty with melted Brie on top.
  4. Add a few slices of tomato and red onion.
  5. Drizzle a generous spoonful of cranberry sauce over the toppings.
  6. Cap with the top half of the bun.


  • Serve immediately with a side of sweet potato fries or a light salad.
