My favorite method to eat meals this summer is by means of grilling. Also called the easiest way to produce a delicious meal.

Here’s something I learned recently: Did you know you can place a can of baked coffee beans right on the barbeque grill? Tony trained me this technique and I was completely impressed. All you have to do is normally open up the can, remove the label, then place on the barbeque grill until bubbly sizzling. Easy and no pans required!
Now that you have that trick below your belt you must time to make a few of these special and spicy turkey burgers.
My love for burgers has certainly grown recent years, mainly due to Tony’s meat infatuation. I hardly ever eat meat or pork so making an all turkey burger is normally what I do on the nights we grill. Why? It’s leaner and I LOVE the flavor.
Now I understand everyone always complains that turkey burgers aren’t juicy or great tasting as beef, but can you guys just trust me when We say that’s not true with regards to these burgs? After all, spicy bbq sauce and pepper jack cheese with just a little special pineapple and salty turkey bacon. Mmmmm hmmm Burger King wishes they might sell these.
I used to be inspired to generate these after partnering with , an online grocery delivery program which has been around for years. I always see them generating around my Chicago community, providing groceries to households without cars as well as busy specialists who don’t possess time to shop (me!). I came across all of the elements I necessary for these burgers online so when soon when i knew it, I was creating this formula for you.
Lately Peapod launched a fresh site called , which gives delicious recipes from bloggers like me!
Before we reach the recipe, I just want to talk about some more quick reasons for having Peapod and why it’s wonderful:
shows the working total of the bill as you shop so it’s an easy task to determine a budget and stay with it.
The website sorts products from highest to lowest unit cost in each aisle so it makes finding the best value a breeze – you can even sort by health criteria.
Peapod doubles manufacturers’ discount coupons (!!!).
And lastly because Peapod rocks !, they are offering 20% away to Ambitious Kitchen visitors; just use the code PEASPOD20 at checkout. Valid on a 1st order just, using a $100 minimum.
I really like serving these burgers in lettuce wraps or whole grain buns/sandwich thins having a side of sugary potato fries. From the delicious weekend meal and so superior to any fast food drive thru (obviously!).
If you get this to or any recipe from AK, make sure to label #ambitiouskitchen on Instagram or upload an image to my Facebook page! xoxo.

5 pieces turkey bacon
1 pound lean ground turkey breast (a minimum of 93% slim) or can use 99%
3 tablespoons BBQ sauce (shoot for low sugars)
½ moderate white onion, diced
1 garlic clove clove, minced
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper, plus much more if you want spicier
pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
Freshly ground salt and pepper
4 fresh pineapple pieces, ½ inches thick
4 pieces of pepper jack cheese
Toppings: Sliced onions, extra bbq sauce
Make turkey bacon based on directions on the package. Once crispy and completely cooked, transfer to some paper towel and pat dry. Allow a few minutes to cool, then coarsely chop the bacon and set aside.
Make the turkey burgers with the addition of the bottom turkey, cut turkey bacon, bbq sauce, onion, garlic, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes and sodium and pepper to some medium bowl. Combine with your hands until evenly combined. Divide into 4 equal portions and shape into ¾ inches patties.
Grill over medium-hot high temperature for 5-8 moments per aspect or until burgers are cooked through along with a meats thermometer reads 165 levels F. While the burgers are cooking, grill the pineapple slices until browned, turning once; During the last few minutes of cooking the burgers, put in a slice of cheese on top of each burger; cover the barbeque grill for approximately 1 minute while the cheese melts.
Place the burgers on buns, best with grilled pineapple slices, drizzle with extra bbq sauce and best with onions. Serve immediately. Great with special potato fries or fruit!
You can even cook these burgers indoors by broiling them in the range about 3 inches from the very best; broil 5-7 a few minutes on each aspect.
Nutritional information is dependant on using 99% slim ground turkey breast pig feet and beans includes everything except the bun and any toppings you’d like for serving.
Burgers can be frozen for up to 3 months; completely cook burgers, permit them to cool completely, cover in plastic wrap then place in airtight containers or fridge friendly ziploc hand bags.
I acquired a pineapple slicer come early july to make some bbq turkey burgers and put pineapple in it (grill it first though! Nothing beats grilled pineapple in my own opinon). BUT I haven’t gotten around to it however! Turkey burgers are probably my favorite thing to make. I’ve made several different ones lately but I usually do them by myself rather than with my partner, and he’s the one with the grill (also still left the pineapple slicer at his place…)
Perhaps before it cools down too much we’ll make these! I really like the addition of the bacon to the patties. I am wanting to try that out.
