This time around our recipe swap theme was one of my favorites…burgers (and sandwiches, too). Frank just isn’t a big fan of burgers for dinner at home, or even when we’re out. I mean, don’t get me wrong…he’ll eat them 🙂 but it would just never be his first choice. So, I made this for myself for lunch while he was at work.
I was happy to receive a recipe that I hadn’t tried before. Stef from Kickin it in the Kitch submitted it and it was really good! I had to grill a few extra pieces of pineapple (couldn’t resist) but hey, at least I ate it without a bun 🙂
Thanks for a great recipe, Stef!
Teriyaki Turkey Burgers
slightly adapted from Kickin it in the Kitch
1 cup breadcrumbs
1 can pineapple rings, drained (reserve 1/4 cup liquid)
2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
1 pound lean ground turkey
teriyaki sauce for basting
Combine breadcrumbs, juice and soy sauce in a bowl and mix. Add meat and mix well. Shape into 4 patties.
Grill for about 10-12 minutes, brushing occasionally with teriyaki sauce. With a few minutes left, add pineapple to grill and cook for a minute or two on each side. Baste with sauce if you like. Plate burger and top with pineapple and jalapeno.
