1/2 cup boiling water

1/3 cup whole-wheat couscous

fat free olive oil spray

1 cup chopped onion

1/4 cup chopped fresh mushrooms

1/4 cup chopped celery

1/2 tsp. dried thyme

1/2 tsp. dried sage

3/4 tsp. ground pepper

1 pound 99% lean ground turkey

1/2 cup whole berry cranberry sauce

1 Tbsp. Splenda
(We used the box that measures cup for cup like sugar.)

1/2 tsp. lemon extract

1/4 tsp. cinnamon

1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard

4 whole wheat sandwich buns

1. Take boiling water and pour over the couscous in a mixing bowl. Stir and set it aside for about 5 minutes, until the water is absorbed. In the meantime, heat up a large nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat.

2. Spray the pan with olive oil spray, then add the onion and cook for about a minute. Drop in the mushrooms, celery and cook until softened, about 3 minutes more. Then stir in the thyme, sage and ground pepper. Once thoroughly combined pour everything into the bowl with the couscous. Let stand and cool for about 5 minutes. Add the turkey, mash together and form into 4 patties.

3. Put the cranberry sauce into a bowl and stir in the Splenda, lemon extract, cinnamon, mustard and set aside.

4. Heat a large nonstick frying pan over medium heat. Once hot, spray the pan with olive oil spray. Put the patties in the pan and cook them for about 4 minutes on one side, then flip them over and cook another 2 minutes on the other. Cover and keep cooking for another 2-4 minutes until the juice from the burgers run clear. (If you use a meat thermometer inserted in the center it should read 165 degrees Fahrenheit.)

5. Place one patty on each bun bottom and put about 1 tablespoon of cranberry sauce on each patty. Cover with the bun tops and your burgers are ready to serve.
