Turkey Burgers w/ Tabor & Rachel
Tabor is an ex-co-worker of mine from Smarter Living. He and his wife, Rachel, just happened to pull up in front of my house last night at the exact moment I was pulling some Turkey Burgers and Sweet Potato Fries off of the grill. He was just dropping off a letter of recommendation for my application to the CompSci masters program at Tufts, but the timing was just too perfect so Jenny & I pounced on them and made them come inside and eat dinner with us. Much fun was had, but it was probably a bit of a shock for them to go from thinking they were just sticking something in the mailbox, to sitting down for dinner, wine, dessert and their first ever shot of Grappa.
- 1 lb. ground turkey
- 3 T ricotta cheese
- zest of one small orange
- 1-2 T chopped fresh basil
- salt & pepper
- peanut oil
Mix the turkey, ricotta, orange zest & basil. Form into four patties. Make a puddle of the oil on a small plate and turn the patties over in the oil to lightly coat them. Sprinkle on the salt & pepper. Grill. I serve them with toasted buns, sliced tomatoes, lettuce and dijon mustard.
