Maralago Turkey burger recipe

I love cheeseburger's and while they aren't the best thing on the menu if you are watching your weight, I tend to eat them anyway. :) I would much rather not eat red meat, but as far as i am concerned I have never come across any veggie or turkey burger that tastes as good. I WAS WRONG! I used Jennie-O lean ground turkey meat and it turned out great! The famed recipe is from the head chef at Maralago, Donald Trump's exclusive club in Palm Beach, try it out for memorial weekend, you will be pleasantly surprised!

Servings: Serves 8
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced scallions
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped celery
  • 3 Granny Smith apples , peeled and diced
  • 1/8 cup canola oil
  • 4 pounds ground turkey breast
  • 2 Tbsp. salt
  • 1 Tbsp. black pepper
  • 2 tsp. Tabasco® chipotle pepper sauce
  • 1 lemon , juiced and grated zest
  • 1/2 bunch parsley , finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup Major Grey's Chutney , pureed
Sauté the scallions, celery and apples in the canola oil until tender. Let cool.

Place the ground turkey in a large mixing bowl. Add sautéed items and the remaining ingredients. Shape into eight 8-ounce burgers. Refrigerate for 2 hours.

Season the turkey burgers with salt and pepper. Place on a preheated, lightly oiled grill. Grill each side for 7 minutes until meat is thoroughly cooked. Let sit for 5 minutes.

Serve with a side of Mar-a-Lago Pear Chutney and your favorite toasted bread, pita or hamburger roll.

Whheeeeeewwwwww what a weekend!

OK, so I have never been been the "party hard" type of girl and I can honestly say that I have no clue what it feels like to have ever been on a drunken bender over the weekend, but I am exhausted after staying up for all the Royal wedding festivities. We decided that it would be fun to stay up and just not go to bed in order to watch ALLLLLL of the royal wedding coverage. We streamed the coverage live from the BBC and watched all the guests arrive, starting with the first! It was so much fun, my mother spent a LOT of time in London when she was younger and part of my family lived there for over 13 years, and she had so much fun pointing out places she remembered being. Seeing all of the hats was an event in itself, oh how I wish hats would come back in style again, everyone looks polished in the right hat! Anyway, it was worth staying up until 8:30 in the morning to see all the fashion and the wedding, I enjoyed every minute.
