Whether it's summer, winter, spring or fall, these burgers are definitely a crowd pleaser. For those who love a good Bloody Mary and even for those who don't partake, this burger has the kick to give those burger redundancy periods a welcome break and your taste buds a treat.
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 small onion dices
2 ribs of celery
diced (plus extra for garnish)
1 tablespoon salt
3 tablespoons hot sauce
2 teaspoons black pepper
1 cup canned tomato sauce
1 lb ground turkey meat
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup dried parsley
2 tablespoons horseradish
2 palmfuls grill seasoning
4 Kaiser rolls
low-fat Swiss cheese
Pre-heat broiler to High. Pre-heat a large Skillet on Medium heat and spray with vegetable spray (like PAM) -or- heat your grill.
Put a small skillet on the range on Medium-low heat and add the olive oil. When the oil ripples, add the onion, celery, salt and pepper and cook until the celery is translucent. Add the hot sauce and mix up. Add the tomato sauce and bring to a boil before lowering the heat to Low. Let it reduce and the sauce will thicken.
Combine your meat, Worcestershire sauce, parsley and horseradish in a mixing bowl. Portion your mixture into four individual 1" thick patties and make an indentation in the middle with your fingers (it helps make for a better cook). Add the patties to your large skillet -or grill- and cook for 6 minutes on each side. Add your cheese toward of the end of the second side's cooking cycle.
Toast your rolls briefly under the broiler. Assemble your burgers and top the chesses with some of the sauce.
