RECIPE BOOK: Trump's Turkey Burgers

Today's recipe comes from the one and only Donald Trump.  Ok, not really from the Trumpster himself, but from his restaurant at the Mar-A-Lago Club.  Oprah Winfrey visited once and fell in love with this recipe so much that she had to share it.  And here is my rendition.

Trump's Turkey Burger

Makes - 3 turkey burgers


2 tbsp scallion, thinly sliced
1 large stalk celery, chopped
1/2 Granny Smith apples, diced
1/2 lb. turkey breast
3 tbsp Frank's Red Hot Sauce
1/2 lemon, juiced and grated zest
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
pinch ground cinnamon


Saute the scallions, celery and green apples until tender. Let cool.  
Place the ground turkey in a large mixing bowl. Add sauteed items and the pepper sauce, lemon juice and zest, and parsley.  Shape into 8-8 oz burger patties, cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. Season the turkey burgers with the salt and pepper. Place on a preheated grill for 7 minutes each side or until the meat is thoroughly cooked.

1.  What is your go to picnic or outdoor grill food item?

2.  Are you a turkey, beef, or veggie burger person?
I used to be all about the beef, but I've grown away from the taste.  I'm a big fan of turkey burgers.

Dream.  Believe.  Achieve.
