Happy 4th of July
Are you having a picnic or perhaps a barbecue this afternoon to celebrate America's birthday? If you want to try something other than the traditional hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill this year, give these turkey burgers a try. They are flavorful and juicy and really delicious. Just what you need to spice up (and lighten up) your 4th of July meal.
Caprese Chicken Burgers
1 sun-ripened tomato, sliced into 4 pieces
4 fresh basil leaves
4 hamburger buns
1 1lb (454 g) boneless, skinless chicken, ground
1 tablespoon (15 mL) water
1/2 small onion, grated
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/3 cup (75 mL) grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup (50 mL) dry bread crumbs
2 tablespoons(25 mL) chopped fresh basil
2 tablespoons(25 mL) oil packed sun dried tomatoes, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon (1 mL) salt and pepper
Place patties on greased grill over medium heat; close lid and grill. Turn over. Grill until digital thermometer inserted sideways into center reads 165°F (74°C), 10 to 12 minutes.
These burgers are really good. If you can't find ground chicken - substitute ground turkey.
Enjoy your 4th of July!
