This Burger is a quick, easy, delicious alternative to the traditional beef burger.
About 2 years ago I committed to a life style change. My being someone who despises diets and the trends that circle around them began my own thing.
Saltimbocca, or “jump in the mouth” in Italian, is a traditional Roman recipe that translates very well into burgerdom.
I don't eat beef and when I have company over for a barbecue, I try to make a turkey burger that will appeal to everyone.
A great tasting better for you burger!
Turkey burgers are usually a lighter tasting burger, but usually bland with an aftertaste. The Pineapple and Mint Chutney will be refreshing with the moistened ground turkey.
I was trying to come up with a juicy turkey burger with the texture of a good beef burger. I tried several things without success until I added crushed pineapple to the ground turkey.
Healthy but tasty
It might be genetic or it could be a learned skill, but every southerner knows how to smoke meat.
I live in East Texas and East Texans love to grill and love the Cajun influence of being so close to Louisiana.
I've always thought it odd that many people just substitute turkey for beef in a burger and pile it high with traditional burger fixings. Poultry has it's own personality.
I love the Southwestern Eggrolls from Chili's. Only problem is they are just an appetizer. I wanted to find a way to make it a meal.
It is my hope to make a turkey burger that is healthy yet moist and flavorful...and loved by all.
