From the Turkey Burger Spring Roll by Award-Winning New York City-based Chef Chris Cheung to the Bacon-Wrapped Turkey Burger with Guacamole and Jalapeño made by TV Personality and Chef Kenneth Temple, creativity and deliciousness are on the menu

WILLMAR, Minn., July 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Jennie-O Turkey Store, one of the most beloved turkey brands in the nation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Hormel Foods (HRL), announced today the release of new ground-turkey-burger recipes for the grill, developed by award-winning big-city restaurateurs, culinary entrepreneurs, TV personalities and a certified master chef. Some of these recipes, while developed specifically for home cooks to spice up their grilling routines, will soon be found on menus in Chicago and New York City.

Chef Chris Cheung, award-winning restaurateur from New York City’s Chinatown and chef/owner of East Wind Snack Shop in Soho, created the nontraditional Turkey Burger Spring Roll — featuring a homemade ground-turkey-filled spring roll in a bao bun.
