What if you could have all of your Thanksgiving and Christmas favorites on a burger? Well, with the new exclusive holiday menu at D-Luxe Burger, you can!
As part of the Holidays at Disney Springs, D-Luxe Burger is offering two special holiday items: the Holiday Turkey Burger and the Peppermint Cookies ‘n Cream Gelato Shake. Did we go and try ’em out? You bet we did!
The Holiday Turkey Burger features a grilled turkey burger, fried butternut squash and mozzarella risotto, bacon cranberry jam, lettuce, and tomato. It’s $12.49.
You know how turkey burgers can sometimes be dry and kind of… flavorless? Well, this one was neither!
The patty was juicy and incredibly flavorful, and it wasn’t too thick or too thin. (Remember that you can specify the done-ness of your burger at D-Luxe!) We were a little unsure of the “risotto” part of the fried butternut squash and mozzarella risotto, but it added a great flavor and texture to the burger. The bacon cranberry jam was the perfect combination of sweet, sour, and savory, and the lettuce and tomato added a nice element of freshness. And that toasted bun? It was crisp and soft in all the right places.
Enjoy turkey burgers? You’ll probably like this one! Not really a turkey burger person? Consider giving the Holiday Turkey Burger a try; it has none of the qualities that have earned turkey burgers a not-so-great reputation.
Word of warning, though: If you’re an onion hater, this might not be the burger for you. It looks like there are caramelized onions in the patty and the jam. They’re mild, sweet, and quite tasty, but still: they’re there.
Okay, dessert time. Introducing the Peppermint Cookies ‘n Cream Gelato Shake ($7.49).
Do you enjoy chocolate and peppermint? Would having a milkshake that tastes like Thin Mints be a dream come true? Well, Merry (early) Christmas!
We have a few folks on our team who aren’t big fans of milkshakes, but even they thought this was perfect. It’s not too chocolatey and not too minty. The texture manages to be rich and thick but also light and fluffy. 10/10, would drink again. The Peppermint Cookies ‘n Cream Gelato Shake is a winner!
So, yep, we think the holiday eats at D-Luxe Burger are winners, y’all! Definitely worth trying out if you find yourselves in the Springs and hoping for a fun holiday meal!
