Click here for a recipe video.

When the neighborhood grills are ignited and corn is in bloom, what better way is there to enjoy the summer days than with a delicious barbecue? This time, a surprise Mystery Chef popped up at the park to prepare a fantastic summer meal.

On a sunny day, our own Pop-Up Mystery Chef surprised park dwellers when she arrived to prepare turkey burgers, watermelon, corn and kebobs right in the park.

The bright, vibrant colors of fresh peppers, onions and mushrooms are a perfect choice for kabobs or skewers and complement the burgers perfectly.

With fewer calories and less fat than a hamburger, a turkey burger is also a great option to satisfy your summer craving.

Paired with the fresh vegetable kabobs, roasted potatoes and watermelon, this is a healthy and delicious meal family and friends alike will love.

One thing to keep in mind this summer: a Mystery Chef could be anywhere at any time, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled for the Mystery Chef logo at food events all around the country!
