No joke, typing this post is making my mouth drool. I’m remembering how good these burgers were when I made them and I need to eat one of these now! The combination of salty bacon, sweet pineapple and spicy sriarcha is the holy grail of burgers. These are so flavorful ,that after making these, you probably won’t want a regular burger again. The only adaptation we made to the kids’ burgers was to omit the sriracha garlic chili sauce. Otherwise, they ate them as is. Of course, what’s not kid-friendly about these?!! Bacon, pineapple and peanut butter….some of their favorite foods. They were sold and their burgers were devoured!
Thai Peanut Butter & Bacon Turkey Burger
Recipe adapted from The Noshery
1 lb. ground turkey
1 Tbsp. Montreal Chicken Seasoning
8 pieces bacon, cooked
4 sliced pineapple rings (we used canned)
Sriracha Garlic Chili Sauce
4 hamburger buns
1. Mix ground turkey and Montreal Chicken Seasoning until combined and then form into four patties.
2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Once the pan is heated, add the burgers to the pan, cooking approximately 3-4 minutes on each side until cooked through (to at least 160 degrees F, as recommended by the USDA).
3. While burgers are cooking, prepare the buns by laying them open. If using sriracha sauce, you can add to the top of the bun. Once burgers are done, place one burger on each bun bottom. If you’d like your pineapple rings warmed, put them into the heated skillet and cook approximately 30 seconds on each side to warm through. Add a spoonful of peanut butter to the top of the warm burger. Lay two slices of the cooked bacon on top of the peanut butter. Add a pineapple ring and garnish with cilantro.
