Ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 tablespoon jerk seasoning, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1 small green apple, peeled and grated
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped scallions
  • 1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil mayonnaise by Kraft, plus more for brushing
  • 1/4 cup pineapple chutney
  • 3 cups shredded purple cabbage
  • 1 carrot, shredded
  • Canola oil, for the grill
  • 4 hamburger buns or challah rolls, split

Directions:

Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium high. Mix the turkey, jerk seasoning, apple, 1/4 cup scallions and the panko in a bowl; season with salt and pepper. Form into four 1-inch-thick patties and make a small indentation in the middle of each with your thumb to prevent it from puffing up on the grill. Refrigerate.

Whisk the mayonnaise and chutney in a large bowl. Add the cabbage, carrot and the remaining 1/4 cup scallions, season with salt and pepper and toss to coat.

Brush the grill with canola oil. Grill the turkey patties until browned and cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side.

Brush the cut sides of the buns with mayonnaise and sprinkle with jerk seasoning; toast on the grill, about 30 seconds. Serve the burgers and slaw on the buns.

2 graham crackers, broken into small pieces

Directions

Peel the apples & slice them into thin pieces.  Sauté them in a large skillet (you can add a 1/2 T butter, if desired), along with cinnamon and brown sugar until slightly tender and caramelized. 

I used the Frozen Greek Yogurt from Ben & Jerry's with this recipe. Very high in sugar, so moderation is key :)

Remove from the heat and then chill until ready to use.  You don’t want to add hot apples to ice cream… that doesn’t work out so well!
