As you may know from my previous post on Grilled Vegetables, I prefer charcoal for my grilling. So when Foodbuzz asked me to participate in the Tastemaker Program for some free turkey meat and a free Flip™ Video Ultra HD Camcorder I said yes! And they approved it too!
Last week the Flip arrived and then a few days later a huge box of turkey too! So, weekend before last, and over the course of three days of filming and two days of post-production we created this neat video of our Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program “Grilling Turkey”. Thank you Foodbuzz and Shady Brook Farms for the wonderful turkey meat and the Flip™ Video Ultra HD Camcorder!
Perfect timing too with another tasting sample, we got in a box of Nature’s Pride Premium Harvest Buns and Rolls also. All told, as part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, I received four containers of ground turkey meat, four containers of turkey brats, the Flip™ Video Ultra HD Camcorder, a pack of Nature’s Pride Premium Harvest Whole Wheat Buns, one pack of Wheat Buns, and one pack of Hoagie Rolls.
First, here is the video for your viewing pleasure!
I am sharing with you two recipes, the Turkey Brats and Beer, and the Garden Turkey Burgers too! Enjoy!
Grilled Turkey Brats and Beer
|2||Lb.||Turkey Brats, 12 links|

|1 ½||Cups||Onions, julienne|

|3.||Serve on the brats on Hoagie Rolls with the onions.|
Garden Turkey Burger
|2||Lb.||Ground turkey meat|
|¼||Cup||Parmesan cheese, shredded|
|To taste||Fresh cracked black pepper and salt|

The turkey brats and garden turkey burgers are a wonderful treat for our grilling pleasure! I hope you like them too!
