Wine Pairings by @grapefriend

Cabernet is a true friend to heavy cheeses and bold sauces.

Beer Pairings

We like a richer beer, something like Alesmith’s Nut Brown, to bring out the smoky and sweet flavors in the sauce.

TK Table Talk:

What are 3 things that you’re really good at doing that took a lot of hard work and practice?

What To Do:

1. Turkey may arrive slightly frozen. Thaw as needed.

2. Cook Onions: Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a medium sauté pan over moderately high heat. Cook onion with ⅛ tsp salt, stirring occasionally until golden brown, about 6-8 minutes.

3. Onion Chopping: Chop half of the cooked onions and transfer to a medium mixing bowl. Chop the cilantro.

4. Mix Onions and Salsa: Put the unchopped onions in a small mixing bowl with half of the chipotle salsa. Stir together. Set aside (this is your crazy good burger topping).

5. Make Burger Mixture: Add the turkey, chopped cilantro, remaining salsa, cumin and ½ teaspoon salt to the chopped onion in the mixing bowl. Use your hands to mix together.

6. Form Burgers: Divide the turkey mixture into 4 equal pieces. Form into patties, making an indent in the middle with your thumb.

7. Cook Burgers: Add two teaspoons oil to the sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add burgers and cook until golden brown and cooked through, gently turning once, about 4 minutes per side.

8. Cheese Burgers: In the last minute of cooking, sprinkle sliders with cheese and cook until just slightly melted. Remove from pan.

9. Toast Buns (optional): Brush buns with oil and place in the still-hot sauté pan to toast.

To Serve: Place burgers on bottom buns, top with reserved chipotle onion mixture and bun tops.

Sure, our TK food containers are recyclable, but we’d rather you upcycle them first. We’re partial to using them to sprout our garden seeds, but we’d love to see how creative you are! Tag us in your photos with @terraskitchen and #terraskitchen.
