Gather your friends round for a fun outdoor dinner party without the guilt! Lighten up summer favorites with these grilling recipes with turkey. You’ll love this Turkey Kofta and Turkey Brat Pizza recipes, perfect for grilling this summer!
Y’all. It was a totally gorgeous weekend. Definitely one of those “this is why I live in the South” weekends.
We spent a lot of time on our newly redecorated patio; pretty much eating every meal al fresco. In the evenings, we enjoyed a glass of wine and the fire. Pure perfection.
To celebrate the new outdoor space, we hosted a little get together with family and try some of what will surely be my go-to grilling recipes this season. What’s family for if not to experiment on?
I love cooking with turkey. Not only is it a lighter protein option, but I love how well it bends do different flavors. For this little shindig, I explored cooking turkey with some really fragrant Turkish-inspired spices.
Have you ever had Kofta before? Traditionally made with lamb, the long sausage style patties are grilled kebab style and served with a yogurt dip and fresh veggies. Using turkey for this recipe worked really well and I’ll definitely be making versions of this recipe all summer long!
To make these delicious kebabs, mix ground turkey with curry, coriander and spices. The meat is then shaped into patties, threaded on the skewers and grilled. So. darn. good.
I also love grilling pizza, and thought I’d prepare turkey brats in beer then serve them with ooey-gooey cheese and caramelized onions for a real treat. Let’s just say it was a hit. 🙂
