Mar-a-Lago Turkey Burger

Oprah featured this Turkey Burger on her show a few months ago. It's from Donald Trump's club in Palm Beach called "Mar-a-Lago".
My brother flew in this afternoon from California, and I wanted to serve a nice summer dinner. The turkey burger with a pasta salad and fresh fruit was a hit.

Mar-a-Largo Turkey Burger
1/4 C. scallions
1/2 C. celery, finely chopped
3 Granny Smith apples, peeled and diced
18 C. Canola oil
4 lbs ground turkey breast
2 Tbsp. salt
1 Tbsp. black pepper
2 tsp. chipolte Tabasco sauce
1 lemon, juice and grated zest
1/2 bunch parsley, finely chopped
1/4 C. Major Grey's Chutney, pureed
Saute the scallions, celery and apples in the Canola oil until tender. Let cool
Place the ground turkey in a large mixing bowl. Add sauteed items and the remaining ingredients. Shape into eight 8 oz. burgers. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
Season the turkey burgers with salt and pepper. Place on preheated, lightly oiled grill. Grill each side for 7 minutes until meat is thoroughly cooked. Let sit for 5 minutes.
Serve with a side of Chutney and your favorite toasted bread, pita or hamburger roll.

I have GOT to make these. They look amazing. What is in the pasta salad? I didn't eat breakfast this morning - I'm sure you can tell. Anyway I have my kids that don't live at my house over every other Sunday. This looks like the perfect menu.

That sounds so good Nedra. I'll have to try it. We have been cooking more with ground turkey. I am so glad they sell it at Costco now.
