Turkey-Apple Burger
Makes 4 burgers

1    teaspoon olive oil
1    medium yellow onion, finely chopped
1    medium apple, peeled and grated
1    pound ground turkey thigh (ground turkey thigh stays moister than ground turkey breast; available at most supermarkets)
2    tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
4    rolls, split and lightly toasted

Preheat oven to 450 F. Heat olive oil in a large sauté pan; add onion and slowly sauté until golden brown. (If the onion begins to stick to the pan, add small amounts of water a bit at a time.) Add grated apple and cook for another 3–5 minutes, or until soft. Transfer to a small bowl and cool thoroughly.
    Combine ground turkey with onion-and-apple mixture and season with Worcestershire, salt and pepper. Divide into 4 equal parts and shape into burgers. Roast on a nonstick sheet pan for 20 minutes, or until the internal temperature is 160? F. Remove from oven and serve on rolls.
