In Utah we never know when it's going to be a good day or not, so when it is my husband and I take full advantage of it. We decided to do one of our favorite things today for lunch....BBQ. I love coming up with new Burger recipes, but I normally don't work with ground Turkey. Today that was Dave's special request. He wanted a Turkey Burger, so here is what I came up with.
1.25 lbs Ground Turkey
1 tsp. Minced Garlic
1 Tbs. Dijon Mustard
1/2 Onion diced
Salt and Pepper
1 Tbs. Worcestershire Sauce
1 palm full grated Parmesan
5-10 Saltine Crackers crushed
Mix everything together with your hands. Squish it in and out of your fingers to make sure everything gets blended really well. Form into 3 hamburgers.
Grill on your BBQ (or you can do it on the stove top) until it's completely cooked.
Then I like to use a homemade bun or a bakery fresh bun. I warm them up so they're soft and then put your juicy burger right on top.
As for the Brats....those are my favorite. I purchase a really high quality brat from my butcher here in Utah. Then I just place them on the grill and wait for them to pop open. I eat them with a really high-grade German mustard, and it's delicious!
For the grilled asparagus that you can see, I make them really simple. I line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Prepare the asparagus and drizzle with Olio and Company Olive Oil (my favorite) and sprinkle with sea salt and freshly ground pepper. I normally toss them with my hands before I put them in the oven. I just feel like everything comes out better when you do it with your hands instead of a spoon/fork.
Bake at 400 degrees for 12 minutes. After 6 minutes I just toss them around a little bit and then arrange them in a line again.
