Grinding your own turkey makes all the difference in the world but I ground mine a bit coarser than Edzo’s does so I need to get “the art of the grind down.”
Result: Good but not quite Edzo’s. Trying but not quite there!
They also use dark instead of white meat which is something else I need to try. A good mix of the two would be perfect. Maybe 60/40.
GRILLED TURKEY BURGERS
1 pound ground turkey
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sweet-smoky jarred barbecue sauce
Canola oil, for brushing
4 brioche buns, split and toasted
Pickled jalapeño slices and Swiss cheese slices or Green Tomatoes and pickle chips, for serving
Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. In a bowl, season the turkey with salt and pepper and gently knead in 1/4 cup of the barbecue sauce. Shape the meat into four 4-inch patties, about 3/4 inch thick. Brush with oil and grill over moderate heat, turning once, until nearly cooked through, 7 minutes. Brush with the remaining 2 tablespoons of barbecue sauce and cook for 1 minute longer, until cooked through and lightly glazed. Transfer the burgers to the buns and top with pickled jalapeños and Swiss cheese or Green Tomatoes and pickle chips and serve.
