Slathered Turkey Burgers

A few weeks ago I was at the butcher’s with my mom, wandering the isles, and saw this Slatherin’ Sauce. I liked the name, and ‘sticky, sweet, and spicy’ sounded good, so we ended up with a bottle.

There’s pineapple juice somewhere in the ingredients list, which reminded me of some burgers my favorite people in Virginia make, which led to this recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 3 pounds ground turkey
  • Slatherin’ Sauce
  • 1 can of pineapple rings
  • 3 hamburger buns
  • a block of good cheddar cheese or cheddar jack
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

Preheat your grill to around 400 degrees. Slice enough cheese for 3 burgers, then just eat the rest of the block while you cook. Man I’d forgotten how good good cheese can be!

Mix about 1/2 of a cup Slatherin’ Sauce into the ground turkey, then shape into 3 patties.

Brush the tops with more Slatherin’ Sauce, then put on the grill. The burgers may be a bit loose, so be careful moving and flipping them. Once the burgers are on the grill, also place the pineapple rings on the grill, being careful not to let them slide between the bars. Sprinkle the pineapple with the brown sugar and cook until sear marks form on the bottom, then flip. Continue cooking until marked on both sides, then remove from the heat.

When it’s time to flip the burgers (when the bottoms are cooked), brush the new top with more Sauce, then, a few minutes before they’ve reached your desired doneness, top with slices of cheese.

Chumley’s too lazy to even investigate the grill. Typical.

Serve the cooked turkey burgers on buns, with a ring or two of pineapple and a drizzle of additional Slatherin’ Sauce.

My mother’s not a huge fan of bbq sauce, but even she agreed these were some really tasty burgers! If you can find the sauce, it’s definitely worth checking out!
