Dinner Tonight: Strawberry Jam & Goat Cheese Turkey Burgers

Back in March for my dad's 60th birthday party, my mom hired a food truck to come feed us...

...and it was here that I had two of the best burgers EVER!  The truck is called Easy Sliders and if you're ever in the DFW area and see it out and about, pull over immediately :).

The first burger I tried was a beef burger with strawberry jam, goat cheese and bacon...h-e-l-l-o.

In honor of Easy Sliders, I recreated this burger but made mine with ground turkey and turkey bacon (because I just thought jam and turkey sounded a lot like turkey and cranberry sauce...and that my friends, is one of my favorite combinations).  Make these burgers.  I'm telling you...make them.  Such a fun twist on your basic burger!

This recipe makes four (quarter pound) burgers.

Shopping List
1 pound of ground turkey
1 tablespoon poultry seasoning (or salt & pepper will do)
1 cup or so of strawberry jam
8 pieces of crispy bacon (I used turkey bacon)
6 ounces of goat cheese, crumbled
chopped green onions to garnish
4 burger buns

Preheat your outdoor grill or indoor grill pan to medium-high heat.

Add the poultry seasoning or liberal pinches of salt and pepper to your ground turkey.  Divide turkey into four sections and make four patties.  Grill patties about 8 minutes per side or until cooked through.

Take each burger bun and top with two pieces of crispy bacon, turkey patty, strawberry jam, crumbled goat cheese and garnish with a bit of chopped green onion.

Heaven help me.

The salty and sweet combination just work on this burger.  Totally works.

Happy Memorial Day weekend!

Memorial Day Menu

It's almost Memorial Day weekend!  Yay!

I love, love, love celebrating Memorial Day!  This year, I have a menu designed for a family gathering of four or it can be multiplied and serve a large party too.  The best part?  It's simple but crowd pleasing.  Red, white, blue and delicious is the theme of our Memorial Day weekend.

First up...

Start your Memorial Day off right with my Red, White and Blueberry French Toast.  You use blueberry bagels as your bread and make a quick strawberry sauce to go down on top.  Festive and yummy!

My Mama's Corn Salad is a MUST for all summer get-togethers.  It's not a party until this is on my plate.

Once you try these BBQ Green Beans you won't go back to boring old regular ones.  The best part about this version is that the beans cook in the slow less thing to mess with during the party.

This Tortellini Pasta Salad could be a meal in itself...or a delicious side too.

Burger Choice #1 is my Tomatillo Pineapple Burger.  Avocado, a little  Jack cheese and a pineapple oh my...p-a-r-t-y time!

 And burger choice #2 is my Meatloaf Burgers!  The sauce is what makes it a meatloaf honor of Andrew's favorite meal (meatloaf), I made it into a burger.

And wrap up your supper with my Red, White and Blue Trifle.  I love that you make this in advance...that way on party day, you just pop it out of the fridge and serve.

Need a little more inspiration?  Check out my Red, White and Blue Pinterest Board...

Follow Shay Shull's board Red, White and Blue on Pinterest.

I don't know about you...but I'm counting down the days until this weekend!

Happy Wednesday!
