Turkey Burger with Sweet Onion Marmalade
SWEET ONION MARMALADE:
1 sweet onion, chopped
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup orange juice
2 whole cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 1/4 pounds lean ground turkey breast
2 tablespoons ice water
1 tablespoon grated onion
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/8 teaspoon grated nutmeg
4 burger buns, lightly toasted
Sweet Onion Marmalade:
In a medium saucepan, combine the onion marmalade ingredients; cover and cook over medium heat 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until enough liquid has evaporated so onions are almost uncovered.
Uncover pan and cook 15 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook another 10 minutes until most of the liquid evaporates to a glaze and mixture reduces to a marmalade consistency. Remove and throw away the cloves. Serve warm, or cold.
In a bowl, combine turkey, water, 1Tablespoon grated onion, thyme, salt, pepper & nutmeg. Mix and form 4 burgers.
Grill on outdoor barbeque (or broil) about 5 minutes on each side. Lightly toast buns. Put burgers within buns, spread on some mustard and top with sweet onion marmalade.
