Summer Lunch is Served

Turkey Burgers, adapted from Rachel Ray's Cranberry Bog Burgers recipe

1 1/3 pounds (the average weight of one package from meat case) ground turkey breast
1 small McIntosh apple, finely chopped
1 small white onion, chopped
1 rib celery from heart of the stalk, finely chopped
1 rounded teaspoon poultry seasoning
Salt and pepper
Vegetable oil, for drizzling
4 sandwich size sourdough English muffins
8 leaves Bibb lettuce, cleaned

Combine turkey, apple, onion, celery, poultry seasoning, salt, and pepper in a bowl and form into 4 large patties. Preheat a large skillet or a grill pan to medium high heat. Drizzle skillet or brush grill with vegetable oil and cook patties 5 to 6 minutes on each side. Serve with lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, on the muffins. I serve the corn below with it, as well.

Serves 4

4 ears corn, shucked

1. Preheat grill to medium-high. Add corn, butter and thyme to a pot of water over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil; reduce and simmer until corn is tender, about 10 minutes. Drain.

2. Meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk together mayo, Sriracha and salt until smooth. In a skillet, toast coconut over medium heat, stirring, 3 to 5 minutes.

3. Grill corn, turning, until charred, about 10 minutes. Cover with spicy mayo and coconut.
