Give a beach party worthy of Gidget with guests in bathing suits and sunglasses and a menu of lean-but-luscious turkey burgers.
Slideshow: 10 Great Burger Recipes
1/2 cup fat-free, plain Greek yogurt
1/2 cup chopped dill pickles
2 tablespoons chopped pickled hot peppers
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 1/4 pounds lean ground turkey
1 teaspoon smoked sweet paprika
Extra-virgin olive oil, for brushing
6 whole wheat english muffins or hamburger buns, split
Lettuce and sliced red onion and tomatoes, for serving
How to Make It
Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. In a medium bowl, mix the yogurt with the dill pickles and hot peppers and season with salt and black pepper.
In a large bowl, gently knead the turkey with the paprika and 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt. Form the meat into 6 patties, about 3/4 inch thick. Brush the patties with olive oil and season lightly with salt and black pepper. Grill the patties over moderately high heat, turning once or twice, until cooked through, about 12 minutes. Grill the English muffins on both sides until toasted, about 2 minutes.
Spread the pickle sauce on the English muffins. Top with the burgers, lettuce, onion and tomatoes. Close the sandwiches and serve right away.
The pickle sauce can be refrigerated overnight.
