Crazy Easy

For Christmas, my lovely Mum and Pop got me a beautiful two-burner cast-iron grill pan. What better way to inaugerate it than burgers spicy enough to get some sweat breaking on Our Hero's forehead? Of course these burgers could be broiled or pan-fried, too.

Spicy Turkey Burgers with Homemade Tabasco Ketchup
(I clipped the ketchup recipe from somewhere, no source on the scrap of paper . . . )
Red bell pepper, cut into strips
1 lb. ground turkey
2 T. Worstershire sauce
Freshly ground black pepper
Cayenne pepper
Lowfat jalapeno-jack cheese (or pepper-jack)
4 whole-wheat buns
2 T. tomato paste
1 T. yogurt
1 t. tabasco sauce
1/2 t. white vinegar
1/8 t. salt

Heat grill over medium-high heat. Rub lightly with vegetable oil. Grill bell peppers about 15-20 minutes. Combine tomato paste and last four ingredients in a bowl; set aside. Combine turkey, Worstershire sauce, and salt and peppers (black and cayenne) to taste. Form into 4 patties. Grill patties 4 minutes per side or until cooked through. Remove from heat and top with cheese. Grill buns and spread with ketchup. Place each patty on a bun; top with peppers. Serve with a veggie.
