RECIPES: Recipe Details
While dieting, I came up with this recipe as a low fat alternative to hamburgers for a Jimmy Buffett concert! The burgers were a hit and now my friends always ask if I'm bringing them to the pre-concert tailgate party!
1 pound ground turkey
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
1 t finely chopped fresh ginger root
1 can (8 ounces) pineapple slices, reserving
1/4 cup juice
1/2 t salt
1 cup teriyaki sauce
4 wheat hamburger buns
Combine ground turkey, bread crumbs, bell pepper, garlic, green onion, ginger root, 1/4 cup reserved pineapple juice and salt; mix gently but thoroughly. Form meat mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties. Grill over medium coals 10-12 minutes or until meat temperature reaches 165°F. (Turn burgers just once during cooking!) Baste with teriyaki sauce during last 2 minutes of grilling. Grill pineapple slices 5 minutes, basting with teriyaki sauce. Grill buns to warm. Serve burgers on buns; top with pineapple slice.
Pineapple Burgers in Paradise!! Buffett would be proud.... YUM, YUM, YUMMY!
