Gotta love George....

Foreman that is.......
Here is a different kind of burger that I had planned on cooking in the wonderful, warm outdoors. Then, of course, it turned cold and rainy, so I turned to my trusty George Foreman Grill. It was perfect :) Serves 6

1/4 cup thinly sliced scallions
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
3 Granny Smith apples , peeled and diced
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 pounds ground turkey or chicken breast
2 Tbsp. kosher salt
2 Tbsp. black pepper
2 tsp. Tabasco® chipotle pepper sauce
1 lemon , juiced and grated zest
1/2 bunch parsley , finely chopped
1/4 cup Major Grey's Chutney , pureed

Sauté the scallions, celery and apples in the olive oil until tender. Let cool.

Place the ground turkey in a large mixing bowl. Add sautéed items and the remaining ingredients. Shape into eight 8-ounce burgers. Refrigerate for 2 hours.

Season the turkey burgers with salt and pepper. Place on a preheated, lightly oiled grill. Grill each side for 7 minutes until meat is thoroughly cooked. Let sit for 5 minutes.
The leftovers are great the next day!!!

I served mine with a Fresh Corn and Basil Salad and Roasted Potatoes
