Equal one fine meal!
I watched Oprah one afternoon and she waxed poetic about the turkey burger at Donald Trump's private club in Palm Beach.
I was intrigued but we just hardly ever jet down to Palm Beach and go to "the club."  OK never in our wildest dreams.
Imagine my delight when I found the recipe last week, made them that day and loved them.

Mar-a-Lago Turkey Burgers

Recipe from Jeff O’Neill, Mar-a-Lago Club
*Note this recipe makes 8 half-pound burgers. A half-pound burger is very large! You can easily half the recipe and get 6 good sized burgers. I cut the recipe down to work with one 20 oz package of turkey and it yielded 6 large sliders.
2 tablespoons canola oil (I used butter)
1/2 C finely chopped celery
3 Granny Smith Apples, peeled and diced (I grated my apples)
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
4 lbs ground turkey breast (I used 85/15 ground turkey)
2 tablespoons kosher salt
1 tablespoon black pepper
2 teaspoons tabasco sauce
1 lemon, juiced and zested
1/2 bunch parsley, chopped
1/4 cup Major Grey’s Chutney
Saute the scallions, celery and apples in the canola oil until tender. Let cool. Place the ground turkey in a large mixing bowl. Add sauteed 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 preheated, lightly oiled grill. Grill each side for 7 minutes until meat is thoroughly cooked. Let sit for 5 minutes. Serve on your favorite toasted bread, pita, or hamburger bun.

  1. Okay, if they're good enough for you and Oprah, I'll give 'em a try! Not sure if I can get "Major Grey's Chutney here in Montana, but we'll see what happens :)
