  • 1 package (16 ounces) frozen sweet potato fries
  • 1 teaspoon pesto sauce mix
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground thyme
  • 1 cup whole-berry cranberry sauce
  • 1 cup turkey-flavored stuffing mix
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground thyme
  • 1-1/2 pounds ground turkey
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 6 lettuce leaves
  • 6 sesame seed hamburger buns, split
  • 1/3 cup turkey gravy, warmed
  • 6 slices jellied cranberry sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Place fries in a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan; spritz with cooking spray. Combine the pesto mix, celery seed and thyme; sprinkle over fries. Bake 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine whole-berry cranberry sauce, stuffing mix and thyme. Crumble turkey over mixture and mix well. Shape into 6 patties.
  3. In a large cast-iron or other heavy skillet, cook burgers in oil over medium heat until a thermometer reads 165° and juices run clear, 6-8 minutes on each side.
  4. Place burgers on lettuce-lined buns; top with a spoonful of gravy and a slice of cranberry sauce. Serve with fries.
