This Burger is a quick, easy, delicious alternative to the traditional beef burger.
Great alternative for people who have a special diet.
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.
These are great on the grill & healthy and easy to prepare.
After this, you'll never go cold turkey!
A great tasting better for you burger!
This burger was inspired by one of my previous beef burger entries for Build a Better Burger 2006. I realized that the flavors would work equally well with turkey and they did.
Turkey burgers prepared in the style of a Maryland crab cake, with seafood seasoning, horseradish, cracker crumbs and mayonnaise. Finely grated zucchini and sweet onion keep the mixture moist.
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.
This turkey burger reminds me of every delicious component of a Thanksgiving feast, all rolled into one burger.
Healthy but tasty
I may not be a turkey hunter, but many of my friends and family are and it
This burger idea came about poolside, with my niece Maya as an inspiration - I wanted something healthy that Maya would like - we spend a lot of time in swimsuits after all!
It might be genetic or it could be a learned skill, but every southerner knows how to smoke meat.
