This holiday turkey burger from San Francisco-based burger chain Umami Burger sounds possibly even more mouthwatering than a homemade turkey dinner.

Just in time for Thanksgiving, Umami Burger is releasing its decadent holiday turkey burger, called 'The Holiday Bird.' The stacked burger is built on a charred turkey patty, topped with a cornmeal stuffing patty and then smothered in house-made turkey gravy, spicy-sweet ginger-cranberry chutney, seasoned Japanese yams and Umami signature fried sage. As if all of this wasn't enough to sell hungry Thanksgiving celebrators on the holiday turkey sandwich, Umami Burger is also donating $1 of the proceeds from each Holiday Bird to Meals on Wheels America.

With social media's power to generate hype around anything that fits into a current cultural moment, it's more rewarding than ever to come up with a specialty product to celebrate a seasonal change or major event.
