Sweet & Spicy BBQ Bacon Hawaiian Turkey Burgers1

Here’s something I discovered recently: Did you know you can place a can of baked coffee beans directly on the grill? Tony trained me this trick and I was thoroughly impressed. All you need to do can be open the can, take away the label, after that put on the grill until bubbly warm. Easy no pans required!
Now that you have that trick below your belt you have to time to whip up some of these nice and spicy turkey burgers.
My love for burgers has certainly expanded recent years, mainly due to Tony’s meat infatuation. I rarely eat beef or pork so producing an all turkey burger is normally what I really do on the nights we grill. Why? It’s leaner and I LOVE the flavor.
Now I understand everyone generally complains that turkey burgers aren’t juicy or great tasting as beef, but can you guys just believe me when I say that’s not true when it comes to these burgs? I mean, spicy bbq sauce and pepper jack cheese with just a little sweet pineapple and salty turkey bacon. Mmmmm hmmm Burger King wishes they might sell these.
I was inspired to generate these after partnering with , an internet grocery delivery services that’s been around for a long time. I always find them driving around my Chicago neighborhood, delivering groceries to families without cars as well as busy professionals who don’t possess time to shop (me!). I came across every one of the elements I needed for these burgers online so when soon as I knew it, I used to be creating this recipe for you.
Lately Peapod launched a new site called , which provides delicious recipes from bloggers like me!
Before we get to the recipe, I simply want to talk about some more quick reasons for having Peapod and why it’s wonderful:
shows the working total from the bill while you shop so it is easy to determine a spending budget and stay with it.
The website sorts products from highest to lowest unit cost in each aisle so that it makes locating the best value a breeze – you can even sort by health criteria.
Peapod doubles producers’ coupons (!!!).
And finally because Peapod rocks !, they are giving 20% off to Ambitious Kitchen readers; just use the code PEASPOD20 at checkout. Valid on the 1st order only, having a $100 minimum.
I love serving these burgers in lettuce wraps or wholegrain buns/sandwich thins having a side of nice potato fries. From the delicious weekend meal and so much better than any fast food drive thru (certainly!).

Make turkey bacon according to directions within the bundle. Once crispy and completely cooked, transfer to some paper towel and pat dried out. Allow a few minutes to cool, then coarsely chop the bacon and set aside.
Make the turkey burgers with the addition of the bottom turkey, chopped turkey bacon, bbq sauce, onion, garlic, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes and sodium and pepper to a medium bowl.

Grill more than medium-hot warmth for 5-8 a few minutes per side or until burgers are cooked through and a meat thermometer reads 165 levels F. While the burgers are cooking food, grill the pineapple pieces until browned, turning once; Over the last few minutes of cooking food the burgers, put in a cut of cheese together with each burger; cover the barbeque grill for approximately 1 minute while the cheese melts.
Place the burgers on buns, top with grilled pineapple slices, drizzle with extra bbq sauce and top with onions. Serve immediately. Great with sugary potato fries or fruit!

I got a pineapple slicer come early july in order to make some bbq turkey burgers and put pineapple in it (grill it first though! Nothing beats grilled pineapple in my opinon). BUT I haven’t gotten around to it however! Turkey burgers are probably my favorite point to make. I’ve made several different ones lately but I usually do them on my own rather than with my boyfriend, and he’s the one with the grill (also remaining the pineapple slicer at his place…)
Perhaps just before it cools straight down an excessive amount of we’ll make these! I really like the addition of the bacon to the patties. I’ve been wanting to try that out.
