Polynesian Burgers

Polynesian Burgers

Alright, so it’s is officially summer, the 2nd day and my mind is conjuring up all kinds of cool, fun menu ideas.  Burgers seem to be one of the favorites among Americans for picnic food.

If your are like me,with ketchup and pickle relish as the  “de-riguer” ,taste-bud loving choice,  in this recipe, how about stepping beyond your  comfort zone for a different taste with your burger!

This recipe has an Twist in taste  with and Island flair.

1 1/2 pound ground turkey

1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs ( or make your own fresh from leftovers ends of bread)

1 Tbsp lite soy sauce

1/2 tsp ginger

1 (9 oz.) jar ( 1 c.) prepared sweet and sour sauce

1 ( 8 oz. ) can crushed pineapple in it’s own juice, drained

6 sandwich buns ( I like whole grain )

Heat your grill. ( outdoors- or use grill pan on your gas indoor stove.) In a large bowl, combine turkey, bread crumbs, soy sauce,ginger and 1/4 cup of the sweet and sour sauce; mix gently.   Shape into patties.

When read to barbecue, oil grill rack.   Place patties on gas grill over medium-low heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium coals.  Cook 9 to 13 minutes or until no longer pink , turning once.

In a small saucepan, combine remaining sweet and sour sauce with crushed pineapple.   Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thoroughly heated.   Serve burgers on sandwich buns with sauce.

Yield 6 sandwiches
