Transform Summer Favorites with Turkey


May 9, 2014

Summer’s not here yet, but diners are already craving seasonal favorites. Keep your offerings interesting by putting a twist on traditional summer dishes with turkey. It’s a healthy, cost-effective menu solution, and your patrons will love to savor its delicious flavor all summer long.

  • Turkey franks can be a low fat, high protein alternative to beef or pork hot dogs. Just grill and serve with a variety of fresh toppings, like house-made pickles or yellow pepper relish.
  • Grilled or barbecued turkey breast is a delicious summer treat. Nearly all flavor profiles pair perfectly with turkey, allowing endless marinade, glaze, and sauce options. Serve with a side of corn on the cob for an outstanding summer meal.
  • Menu a turkey breast mignon along with your usual steak offerings. Turkey makes it easy to serve patrons the freshly grilled flavor they crave with less fat and fewer calories.
  • Turkey burgers are a year-round menu must-have, but summer is an ideal time to experiment with new toppings and condiments. Try a Hawaiian-style turkey burger, complete with freshly sliced pineapple, sweet soy sauce, cucumber, and arugula leaves to give patrons a taste of the tropics.
