I found out 2 weeks ago that I was chosen as a finalist in the Gnarly Heads Rippin Ribs contest! We’re on our way to DC and the cook-off is tomorrow. We chose to go a day early just to hang out and see the sights. One of my wonderful cooking friends, Elinor and her husband Josh, who is competing, too, will be there; I know it will be a blast with them. Next Friday, I plan to do another Field Trip post and Monday I will post all about the cookoff as well as share my delicious rib recipe with you all!
White House Turkey Burger (adapted from Family Circle Magazine)
1 pound ground turkey
¼ cup panko crumbs
1 egg white
2 tablespoons minced scallions
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
1 lemon, zested and juiced
4 whole-wheat hamburger buns
Combine turkey, panko crumbs, egg white, scallions, garlic clove, soy sauce, lemon zest and lemon juice. Shape into 4 equal patties. Grill the patties about 5-7 minutes on each side, until cooked through. Place in between hamburger buns and serve.
I should note that the White House Turkey Burger is served bunless. I served them in whole-wheat hamburger buns (to keep it a little healthy, but still keep the overall burger feel). Otherwise, its just meat on a plate. But, it is delicious. John and I won’t be heading into the White House this weekend but just because we’re not there, doesn’t mean we can’t eat like the First Family!
Have a great weekend everyone, see you on Monday with an exhaustive (I’m sure) recap of the ribs and cook-off! And Friday I will recap the food of the weekend; it’s going to be an exciting week!
Until the next time my oven is on…
