If you’ve been grilling up basic cheeseburgers at every BBQ so far this summer, check out these fresh ideas for your next backyard cookout:
Greek Lamb Burgers
Bring the flavors of the Mediterranean to your plate without hopping on a plane! Take home ground lamb from Roche Bros. meat department. Mix with garlic powder, salt, pepper and a hint of cinnamon. After grilling, top your burger with crumbled feta, thinly sliced red onion, and salas made with diced tomatoes and kalamata olives. To make your burger really scream, “Opa!” add a dollop of tangy tzatziki sauce, made with yogurt, cucumbers and minced dill, plus fresh squeezed lemon juice and a minced clove of garlic. For another twist, wrap it in a lightly grilled whole wheat pita.
Thanksgiving Turkey Burgers
Step up your usual turkey burger it up with a taste of Thanksgiving in the summer. Combine ground turkey meat with salt, pepper and poultry seasoning. Form it into patties and grill. Then, in a small pot, add a package of frozen cranberries with a cup of orange juice, half a cup of brown sugar and a cinnamon stick. Bring the mixture to a boil and when the cranberries begin to pop, take it off the heat and remove the cinnamon stick. Puree in a blender and you have sauce fit for a Thanksgiving-in-the-Summer burger! Instead of a bun, serve alongside a nice chunk of cornbread from our bakery. Your taste buds will be thankful.
Chicken Parm Sliders
Turn the idea of a chicken parmesan sub from an Italian café into a healthier, equally enticing Chicken Parm Slider, prepared and grilled at home. Take ground chicken meat and season with Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Make the meat into mini, slider-sized burgers. Drizzle olive oil on the patties and grill. When they’re almost cooked, spoon some of your favorite tomato sauce on the burger and top with some shredded mozzarella cheese. When the cheese is bubbly and golden, remove from the grill and place on mini ciabatta buns. These little Italian crowd pleasers will surely be a hit at your next BBQ!
