Thanksgiving Burger

Pairs well with:

White Zinfandel

With strawberry and melon essences, this American original is perfectly at home with however you like to unwind.

My inspiration for this burger is that I love Thanksgiving. Since November will be here before we know it, I thought it would be a great idea to create a burger that reminds us all of the good food to come during this holiday.

3. While sweet potatoes are cooking on the grill, chop red onion, green bell pepper, and garlic and place in a bowl. Add cabbage to the bowl.
4. In another bowl, add brown sugar, white sugar, Italian seasoning, salt, white wine, white vinegar, apple vinegar, and cranberry juice. Then, mix in the mayonnaise.
5. Transfer the vegetable mixture to the bowl with the wine/cranberry/mayonnaise mixture. Stir to evenly distribute the sauce. Refrigerate the mixture.
6. After 6-8 minutes, remove the potatoes from the grill. Open up the aluminum foil and let the sweet potatoes cool for 2 minutes. Then, add to the cabbage mixture and thoroughly stir. Then refrigerate until the burger is cooked.
