Deli Turkey 03:11

Can the chefs transform deli turkey into a juicy turkey burger? Find out.

From canned whole chickens to dairy milked from a plastic cow,  Cutthroat Kitchen is no stranger to strangeness. In fact, it welcomes such oddness. It's a good thing that's the case, because on tonight's all-new episode, one chef was tasked with making a turkey burger out of not moist ground turkey meat, as would be expected, but processed deli turkey meat. But before the contestant could be saddled with such a sabotage, the Cutthroat culinary team had to try its hands at the challenge to make sure that whatever burger resulted — if any did — was edible, given the amount of time on the clock.

Food stylist Jamie took to the kitchen to attempt this next-level ingredient swap-out, and after making what he deemed "turkey dust," mixing it with chopped bacon and cooking the patty, he realized he'd made something "real weird." He explained, "It's a funky-looking patty; there's no two ways about it." Nevertheless, despite its nontraditional appearance, Jamie added that the more important question would be whether or not the patty tasted fine. Much to his surprise, it did. "It's that good. I'm voluntarily eating my own sabotage cooking," he said.
