Turkey Burger Twist

Perfect and just in time for the summer peaches, I discovered this recipe out of my mother-in-law's Better Homes & Garden magazine about two months ago. It looked so good I had to give it a shot - plus, I LOVE PEACHES!

My guilty pleasure of a Turkey Burger combined with my favorite sweet summer pleasure...... SIGN ME UP! :)

This is from BHG online.

Turkey Burger with Peaches and Blueberries 

  • 4 small peaches
  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 4 slices Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 tsp. chili powder
  • 4 thick slices roasted garlic country bread or garlic bread, toasted if desired
  • Fresh mint (optional)
1. Finely chop one of the peaches; add ground turkey, salt and pepper. Shape into four 1/2-inch thick patties (if necessary, dampen hands first). Grill directly over medium-high heat for 4 to 5 minutes per side or until no pink remains (165°F). Add cheese; cover and cook 1 minute more.
2. Meanwhile coarsely chop remaining peaches; combine in a large skillet with blueberries and 1/4 teaspoon chili powder. Cook, stirring occasionally, over medium heat for 5 to 6 minutes or until heated through and beginning to have juices form.
3. Top each piece of garlic bread** with one patty and some of the peach mixture. Add mint and additional chili powder. Makes 4 servings.
** We used a fresh whole grain loft from a local bakery with Earth Balance & garlic powder spread on it. I also had 6 burgers by the time all was said and done... but no complaints here! :)
