Grilled Turkey Burger with Pineapple and Bourbon Brown Sugar Bacon


½ pound thick-cut bacon, cut into 1-inch-long pieces
¼ cup bourbon
¼ cup brown sugar
2 pounds ground turkey meat formed into 8-ounce patties
4 tablespoons olive oil
Kosher salt, fresh cracked pepper to taste
4 slices mozzarella cheese
Kaiser rolls
4 butter lettuce leaves
4 fresh pineapple pieces, thickly sliced


Bacon: In a large sauté pan on medium-high heat add in the bacon and brown on one side (3 to 4 minutes). Flip bacon over and deglaze with bourbon and add in the brown sugar and gently stir. Finish the bacon in the oven on 350°F for 10 minutes.

Burger: Season burger patties with salt and pepper, then coat patties and pineapple slices on both sides with olive oil. Place the turkey patties on a hot grill and cook for 6 to 7 minutes per side or until they are browned on the outside and cooked thoroughly. After you flip the turkey burgers, place the pineapple slices on the grill to form grill marks. Place cheese on top of the burger patties to melt. Once the burgers and pineapple slices are cooked, remove from the heat and let rest for 2 to 3 minutes.

To Plate: place burger on the bun and stack with lettuce, pineapple, and bacon. Serves 4.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
