Turkey Burgers with Grilled Onions and Blue Cheese

Ingredients
1 pound ground turkey breast meat*
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce (see note)
6 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon black pepper, divided
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
8 ounces thinly sliced onions
1 ounce crumbled blue cheese

Directions
1 – Combine turkey, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, 2 teaspoons oil, paprika, cumin, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in medium bowl. Shape into 4 patties.

2 – Heat 2 teaspoons oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, swirling to coat bottom of pan. Cook patties 4 minutes on each side or until no longer pink in center. Remove from heat and place on serving platter; cover to keep warm.

3 – Add remaining 2 teaspoons oil to pan residue in skillet. Heat over medium-high heat and cook onions 4 minutes or until beginning to richly brown, stirring frequently. Stir in remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Spoon onions over patties and top with cheese.

*Note: Ground turkey breast is made from white meat only, with no skin. It’s leaner than regular ground turkey, which is made from white and dark meat with some skin. Frozen ground turkey is usually all dark meat with skin, and is 15% fat, similar to ground sirloin.

**Note: Check the nutrition label on the Worcestershire sauce to be sure it’s gluten-free. Some varieties may contain gluten, while others are gluten-free.

Yield: 4 servings.

SLOPPY JOE’S WITH SWEET CORN
This ground BBQ concoction has been called many things, including; Steam Burger, Tavern Sandwich, Spoon Burgers, Barbeque Sandwich and of course Sloppy Joe’s. Whatever you call it, they are delicious!
This hearty sandwich was a childhood favorite for simple suppers and was a huge treat for tailgate events (and still is)! My following recipe is a modified New York Times version, that one of our customers recommended. I modified it based on my own taste, as well as what I had on hand. Garnish it with homemade pickles and flash sautéed fresh sweet corn, for grown-up goodness, that kids will love too. *For best flavor profile, make a day ahead. Leftovers were even better!

½ – teaspoon smoked paprika
¼ – teaspoon cloves
½ – cup water
2 – cups tomato sauce
½ – cup ketchup
2 – tablespoons Worcestershire
1 – tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 – tablespoons Maple Syrup
¼ – cup fresh squeezed lemon juice, or other citrus

Preparation:

1 – In a heavy skillet over medium heat, heat oil and add onions. Cook the onions, stirring occasionally, until tender and lightly caramelized. About 10 minutes.
2 – Increase your heat to medium high and crumble in the ground buffalo, and the garlic and dry spices. Cook the meat until browned, stirring occasionally, breaking up the larger pieces up with your spoon.
3 – Add the tomato sauce, ketchup, Worcestershire, mustard and syrup and stir to incorporate. Reduce your heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes, or until desired consistency is reached.
4 – Add the fresh squeezed lemon and season to taste.
5 – Serve on toasted buns and top with pickles and fresh sautéed sweet corn with green onions. So good!
