Grilled Turkey Burger with Peaches and Blueberries
Dinner made easy with grilled turkey burgers topped with Monterey Jack cheese, peaches and blueberries on a thick slice of garlic toast – ready in about 20 minutes.
You may remember, last summer I told you about my love of Butterball frozen turkey burgers. They are wonderful to have in the freezer, because they go right from the freezer to grill (or skillet) and cook in under 20 minutes. Perfect for the nights when you’re in a hurry and or have not planned anything for dinner.
When I got a little fancy and made Grilled Turkey Burger with Orange and Fig Glaze and Creamed Feta I thought I had died and gone to burger heaven. It’s still one of my all-time favorite burgers. So this year when Butterball asked if I’d like to see what else I could do with a turkey burger, I couldn’t resist. I knew it was going to be hard to top the orange and fig glaze and creamed feta, so I went another direction. Since I just love summer and ripe peaches, I wanted to try another turkey and fruit pairing. I made a Grilled Turkey Burger with Peaches and Blueberries served on a piece of garlic toast! Hold on to your hats, I know it sounds like an odd combination, but oh my word was it delicious!!
Not only were we super happy with this grilled turkey burger……you’ll be happy too, because this burger is low fat, high protein, and max on flavor.
Natural Inspirations White Turkey Burgers are 93% Lean, Gluten Free and filled with flavor. —the white meat is much lower in calories and fat and grilling the burgers makes for an added boost of flavor. The juicy sweetness of the peaches and blueberries add a whole new dimension to the burger.
And the best part…….this grilled turkey burger with peaches and blueberries comes together just as quick as simply grilling the turkey burgers, in 16 minutes. While the burgers are on the grill, you can pop the garlic bread in the oven to toast and heat up the peaches and blueberries with a little chili powder on the stove until they become juicy. Super simple, a fabulous light Turketarian summer meal. 😉
