  • 1 pound ground turkey (breast meat only)
  • 1/4 cup cranberry sauce
  • 4 ounces Cabot 50% Light Cheddar, cut into 4 (1-ounce) slices
  • Vegetable cooking spray

Shape ground turkey into 8 thin patties. Spread 1 tablespoon of cranberry sauce in center of 4 patties and top with 1 slice cheese; place remaining 4 patties on top, pinching edges together to seal.

Lightly coat large nonstick pan with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Cook burgers for 4 minutes per side, or until well done. (Alternatively, cook on grill.)

Season with salt and pepper. Place on buns and top with cranberry mayo* and arugula.
