French Toast Turkey Burger

Breakfast for dinner is a pretty regular thing for me — I love me some French toast or a waffle on a weeknight. This recipe happened, sort of, on accident. I was craving a burger but also French toast. Instead of choosing one or the other, I decided to make both and put them together. It was a great decision, as this burger is absolutely delicious!

Notes

Note: You could also add a "sweet-friendly" cheese such as Brie or Cheddar, or a fried egg to make this burger even better!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2  Pound  ground turkey
  • 2  Tablespoons  maple syrup, plus more for serving
  • 1/4  Cup  breadcrumbs
  • 1/2  Teaspoon  poultry seasoning
  • 1/2  Teaspoon  black pepper
  • 1/4  Teaspoon  sea salt
  • 1/4  Cup  chunky applesauce
  • Olive oil
  • strips bacon
  • 1  Tablespoon  brown sugar
  • egg
  • 1/2  Cup  milk
  • 1  Teaspoon  vanilla extract
  • 1  Teaspoon  cinnamon
  • rolls

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Combine the turkey, maple syrup, breadcrumbs, poultry seasoning, pepper, salt, and applesauce in a large mixing bowl until well mixed. Form into patties and set on a plate. Drizzle some olive oil in a frying pan and place over medium heat. Cook the burgers until done, for about 5 minutes on each side.

Lay the bacon on a cookie sheet, sprinkle with the brown sugar, and put in the oven for 20 minutes, or until the desired crispness is reached.

Whisk together egg, milk, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. Dip inside of rolls into the mixture and toast in another flat pan over medium heat until browned, about 5 minutes.

Assemble the burger and bacon on the French toast rolls and drizzle with additional maple syrup, if desired.

French Toast Shopping Tip

What’s the difference between brown and white eggs? Besides color, nothing – different breeds of chicken account for the differences in color – quality and freshness are what really count.

French Toast Cooking Tip

In addition to keeping foods like granola, yogurt, and fruit on hand, plan ahead for hectic weekdays by whipping up extra batches of waffles or pancakes and individually freezing them for easy morning meals.
