1 pound ground turkey
1/4 cup Italian-flavored breadcrumbs
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon olive oil
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper


6 (3/4-ounce) slices Land O Lakes® Deli 2% Milk American, cut into quarters
2 tablespoons honey mustard
12 mini whole wheat thin sandwich buns*
12 small lettuce leaves
1 small Fuji or Gala apple, cored, thinly sliced into rings


Heat gas grill to medium or charcoal grill until coals are ash white.

Combine all burger ingredients in bowl; mix well. Shape mixture into 12 patties.

Place patties onto grill. Grill, turning once, 8-10 minutes or until internal temperature reaches at least 160°F or meat is no longer pink in center. Top each burger with 2 quarters cheese; continue grilling 1-2 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Spread 1/2 teaspoon honey mustard onto bottom half of each mini bun. Top each with 1 small lettuce leaf, 1 apple ring and 1 burger. Cover with top half of mini bun. Serve immediately.
