Grilled-Tomato Sauce

Makes about 1 1/3 cups

Use this on our Roasted-Garlic Turkey Burgers.


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for brushing

  • 2 large beefsteak tomatoes, halved crosswise

  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

  • ¼ cup Roasted Garlic for Turkey Burgers


  1. Preheat grill to high (if using a charcoal grill, coals are ready when you can hold your hand 5 inches above grill for just 1 to 2 seconds). Brush grill and the tomatoes with oil. Season tomatoes with salt and pepper.

  2. Grill tomatoes until softened and slightly charred, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Let stand until cool enough to handle. Peel tomatoes; discard skins.

  3. Put tomatoes, garlic, and oil in a bowl; mash with a fork. Season with salt and pepper. Sauce can be refrigerated in an airtight container, up to 3 days.
