Bacon, Goat Cheese and Pineapple Turkey Burger

Follow Me on Pinterest

After a miserably long winter here in Chicago, we were randomly blessed with a rare, late March 60+ degree day last Sunday.  I took full advantage of it and fired up my grill to make one of my wife and I’s favorite burger recipes.  This recipe is a bit unorthodox, but trust me, it is the perfect combination of meaty burger and bacon, creamy goat cheese and tangy pineapple!

Form ground turkey into 4 ounce patties.  Put them in between pieces of parchment paper; refrigerate or freeze until ready to use.
