"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

1-1/2 lbs lean ground turkey
1 egg
1/2 c. bread crumbs
2 T. ketchup
Salt & pepper
Canola or olive oil (for browning)
12 slices rye or whole wheat bread
4 T. Dijon mustard
Large handful of fresh basil
2 tart apples (Granny Smith), thinly sliced

In a bowl, combine ground turkey, egg, bread crumbs, ketchup, and salt & pepper. Mix well.
Set oven at 250 degrees. In a large skillet, heat enough oil to form a thin film over the entire bottom. After washing, then dipping your hands into cold water, form 6 burgers from the mixture. (It will feel too soft to form but the burgers will firm up when cooked.) Wash your hands.
When oil is hot, scoop up burgers with a spatula and slide into the pan. Cook 3 burgers at a time, cooking for about 5 minutes per side (or until they're cooked thro). Keep warm in the oven while cooking the remaining burgers.
Toast bread and spread it with mustard, then form sandwiches, adding burgers, basil leaves, and apple slices.
Serve at once.
