Turkey Burger with
Sweet Onion Marmalade
- SWEET ONION MARMALADE:
- 1/3 cup red wine vinegar
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 2 whole cloves
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
- 1 sweet onion, chopped*
- TURKEY BURGERS:
- 1 1/4 pounds lean ground turkey
- 2 Tablespoons ice water
- 1 Tablespoon grated onion
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon grated nutmeg
- 4 Whole Wheat burger buns, lightly toasted
- Dijon mustard
SWEET ONION MARMALADE:
In a medium saucepan, combine first six of the onion marmalade ingredients; stir, then stir in the chopped sweet onion; COVER and cook over MEDIUM heat 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until enough liquid has evaporated so onions are almost uncovered.
UNCOVER pan and cook 15 minutes.
THEN reduce heat to MEDIUM-LOW and cook another 10-20 minutes until most of the liquid evaporates to a glaze and mixture reduces to a marmalade consistancy. Remove and throw away the cloves. Serve warm, or cold.
In a bowl, combine turkey, water, 1 Tablespoon grated onion, thyme, salt, pepper & nutmeg. Mix and form 4 burgers.
Grill on indoor or outdoor barbeque (or broil or pan fry) about 5 minutes on each side. Lightly toast buns. Put burgers within buns, spread on some Dijon Mustard and top with sweet onion marmalade.
*May substitute a yellow onion if absolutely necessary. If you do, soak chopped onion in cold water for about 5 minutes then drain before using.
