Grilling is an activity that we look forward to during the summer months. After the official kick-off of Summer, our family has a cookout at the 4th of July and often an end of summer bash for Labor Day.
I love the unique flavor that grilling brings (and the fact that guys usually don’t mind manning the grill!).
If you are looking for an easy option for leaner, cleaner eating in the summer, you should definitely try grilling with Jennie-O Turkey.

JENNIE-O® has always been a wholesome, healthy option to beef. Leaner meat makes you feel better and is better for your body since protein-heavy options keep you fuller longer. Keep this in mind if you are carb conscious.
Turkey is also a versatile product for both grilling or quick summer salads—all without sacrificing on taste and quality.
My husband doesn’t eat pork, so he LOVED the Turkey Bacon & Cheddar Turkey Burgers.
The burgers are ready to put on the grill, with no prep required, which makes for a fast meal. The portion sizes are 1/3 pound and they don’t shrink when you cook them! What guy doesn’t like a 1/3 lb burger MORE than a 1/4 lb burger?!
Preheat broiler to high setting or gas grill to medium.
Place frozen burgers on broiler pan and position 4″ from heat source.
(The day I made these, it was raining, so I cooked them on my George Foreman grill. I love this appliance because it cooks both sides at the same time!)
Broil 9 to 10 minutes per side (turning twice) and until fully cooked to 165°F.
I served the turkey burgers on hamburger buns with lettuce. Mayo and mustard were available, too.
Since these were full of turkey bacon flavor and already had cheese bits in the burger, the sandwiches were ready to go!
Whether it’s a cookout or quick evening meal, you can serve with chips (or a quick green salad, potato salad, or macaroni salad) and bottled water.
Dinner is done!
