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.
