Who’s ready for grilling season? I’ll be the first to stand in that line! Today I’m kicking off a weeklong ‘BBQ Basics Made In A Blender’ series showcasing all the fun things my Blendtec can do that will help make your BBQ the best ever. Today you’ll find me over on the Blendtec Blog giving you the most delicious homemade Savory Garlic Butter you’ve ever tasted. Made with your Blendtec! If you haven’t made your own butter you MUST try it. It’s so easy I thought I was doing something wrong, and then magically butter appeared! I already can’t wait to make more varieties – so don’t be surprised if you see a few recipes popping up around here!
Last year for a week in May I ran a burger series that was one of my favorite weeks of the year. I love, love, love grilling and love just as much: burgers! My Swiss Turkey Burger (which actually wasn’t in the series) was and still is one of my favorite burgers. I had no idea you could make a burger out of ground turkey that would be moist and delicious. When I think of using ground turkey I immediately think: dry. Absolutely not the case, especially if you make this Bruschetta Turkey Burger. First bite and I was dancing on cloud nine. So much flavor. So much intensity. So much love. The great thing is how easy this is to whip up. If you need a great bruschetta recipe, check out my Italian Tomato & Basil Bruschetta!
I wanted to try something new with my hamburger buns this time around. So I put that Savory Garlic Butter to good use and slathered it on a brioche bun. Lightly toasted it to make a golden brown crust and away I went. I’m telling you, that garlic butter is so good I could swim in it. So creamy, so rich, so flavorful. You certainly don’t want to miss the recipe – so be sure and check it out here!
