Talk Turkey

After the ribfest last night, felt the need to go a bit lower fat. This is a GREAT Turkey Burger trick my wife grabbed....can't remember where, but we rarely use ground beef for burgers anymore because of it.

Add 1 heaping Tbsp of Major Grey Chutney to 1 lb of ground turkey, along with your favorite seasoning. Mix it up and form the patties:

I egg em at 475-500 to get a good char on it before flipping (about 6-7 mins) then cook em to 160 internal. a little cheddar and american, and some Plum Chipotle sauce on a King's Hawaiian Bun....and a side of "fuel" :laugh:


I promise....that chutney makes for a KILLER turkey burger.

    That is a great burger. Here is one I pilfered from Opray a few years back.

    Turkey, Burger, Mar-a-Lago, Oprah Turkey Burger

    Oprah found a new favorite food when she tried this turkey burger at Mar-a-Lago, Donald Trump's private club in Palm Beach. "I believe [it] may be the best turkey burger in the entire world," she says. The Mar-a-Lago Turkey Burger will be permanently available at the Trump Bar and Grille in Trump Tower in New York City, open to the public for lunch and dinner. It will also be served during lunch in Chicago at Sixteen, the Trump International Hotel restaurant.

    1/4 cup scallions, thinly sliced
    1/2 cup celery, finely chopped
    3 Granny Smith apples, peeled and diced
    1/8 cup canola oil
    4 lbs ground turkey breast
    2 Tbs salt
    1 Tbs black pepper
    2 tsp chipotle Tabasco™
    1 lemon, juice and grated zest
    1/2 bunch parsley, finely chopped
    1/4 cup Major Grey's Chutney, pureed

    1 Sauté the scallions, celery and apples in the canola oil until tender. Let cool.
    2 Place the ground turkey in a large mixing bowl. Add sautéed items and the remaining ingredients. Shape into eight 8-ounce burgers. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
    3 Season the turkey burgers with salt and pepper. Place on a preheated, lightly oiled grill. Grill each side for 7 minutes until meat is thoroughly cooked. Let sit for 5 minutes.
    4 Serve with a side of Mar-a-Lago Pear Chutney and your favorite toasted bread, pita or hamburger roll.
    1 350°F direct about 7-8 minutes per side.

    Servings: 6

    I'll have to see if I can find that chutney around here. I've been wanting to try some turkey burgers.
    Great plated picture!

    Bookmarked. Do you grind your own turkey or buy it at the grocery store pre-ground?

    AE - taking the easy route and buying the 93/7 pre-ground. Haven't bought the meat grinder for my KA yet! :angry:
