Grilled Pineapple and Pesto Turkey Burgers


So many amazing awesome new cover reveals & book tours going on, I had to squeeze this amazing recipe for summer grilling in for you guys. You will love this burger, it is delicious!!!! here is the recipes thanks to "Dole Sunshine", "Grilled Pineapple and Pesto Turkey Burgers".  

I have made it 2 times already in this month of July, & I am thinking it will be happening again real soon. It is such a light burger. Doesn't fill ya up like a normal burger. So light & refreshing!!! I don't have a food processor, what I try to do is really chop the spinach extra small, this works very well so far??!

Here's the recipe...

- 6 cups spinach
- 2lbs. lean ground turkey
- 1/2 cups prepared pesto sauce, divided
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- salt & pepper to taste
- 1 can (20 oz) DOLE Pineapple Slices, drained
- 10 kaiser or hamburger rolls, sliced
- 10 green leaf lettuce leaves
- 10 slices Monterey jack cheese

Process spinach in a food processor, until finely chopped. Combine turkey, spinach, 1/4 cup pesto sauce and olive oil in a large bowl. Gently mix until incorporated. Form mixture into 10 patties. Season patties with salt and pepper. Grill turkey until no longer pink inside.

Add pineapple slices to grill the last 5 to 10 minutes and cook until golden brown. Toast buns on grill. Place lettuce on bottom half of each bun. Place burger on bun. Top with cheese, remaining 1/4 cup pesto sauce and grilled pineapple slice. Place bun on top. 

THANKS!! for stopping by. Have a great weekend!! Happy Grilling!!! Beth ( :
