Bacon Bit Turkey Burgers with Peach Barbecue Ketchup


For the sauce:

  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup grated onion
  • 1 teaspoon coarse black pepper
  • 2 peaches, chopped

For the burgers:

  • 8 slices applewood smoked bacon
  • 2 pounds ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup grated onion
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown or yellow mustard
  • Canola or olive oil
  • Pretzel rolls or burger buns, split
  • Toppings: Raw or grilled red onions, sliced bread-and-butter pickles, chopped lettuce


  1. Combine the sauce ingredients in a small pot and simmer over medium heat to thicken and cook down the peaches.
  2. Pre-heat the grill or a griddle pan.
  3. Bake the bacon on a slotted broiler pan in a 375°F to crisp; chop.
  4. Combine the turkey with the bacon bits, grated onion, salt, pepper, Worcestershire and mustard. Form six patties; drizzle each with oil and griddle or grill for 10 minutes to cook through.
  5. On the roll bottoms, arrange the chopped lettuce, onions and pickles, and top with the burgers. Slather with the peach barbecue ketchup and set the bun tops in place.
