Just home from this years Superbowl party. I had such good intentions. But instead of rehashing the bad (which included Tar Pit Wings), I thought I would tell you about what I brought to the party, which I think would be Alton approved.

These burgers are a great alternative to your everyday beef burger, they are full of flavor, moist, and cook up great on the grill. And, the best part: they follow Alton’s rules. They are made from ground turkey (the recipe calls for 1/2 ground pork, 1/2 ground turkey, but I use all ground turkey), have peanuts in them, and I even found these whole grain hot dog buns that I cut in half to fit my slider-size burgers. I also served mine with thinly sliced cabbage and a sort of spicy mayo made with Hellmanns mayonnaise, yellow mustard, fresh lime juice, fish sauce, hot sauce, and garlic powder, salt, pepper and cumin. Also, since we have 2+ feet of snow outside, I cooked these in a grill pan today, with some olive oil brushed on it, over medium-low heat and they came out great.

I will say that I did a decent job of only having a taste of the smoked cheese, french onion dip in a bread bowl, crackers and Boursin cheese, cup cakes, chips and dip (ok, maybe more than a taste of chips and dip), but overall, I don’t have horrible regret about my choices tonight. And maybe even Alton eases the rules a bit on days like this.
