They flood us with foods that cause cancer, make us fat, clog our guts, corrode our arteries, and give us hives. It's all too much for me to keep up with. So I've stopped listening.
Certain people on Facebook are so full of gloom and doom I can't even look at their posts anymore. I don't want to know if my wine is going to cause my hair to curl. I don't care. I'll live with curly hair.
So here's a fantastic, and really easy, turkey burger recipe that the whole family will love. And the kick? Diced jalapenos. Oh, yeah. Now we're talking.
Okay, okay, you might not want to put the diced jalapeno's on the kids burgers, or grandmas. But then again, maybe you do.
You'll never grill a *naked* turkey burger ever again. Ever.
adapted from Everyday Food
1 package of ground turkey (Jenny-O ground turkey is a 1.25lb package)
1/2 cup diced or shredded cheese (gruyere, or med. cheddar)
3 scallions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1 garlic clove, minced
Salt and pepper
Heat the grill to high.
1. In a medium bowl combine the turkey with the cheese, scallions, breadcrumbs, mustard, garlic, salt and pepper.
2. Divide the mixture evenly into patties. I made 6 patties.
3. Lightly oil the grill. Turn down to med-high. Place the patties on the grill 4 minutes on each side. Let rest a minute before serving.
4. Toast the buns and serve with accompaniments.
TIP: MAKE AHEAD FOR CAMPING.
I made these last week and froze the raw patties so we could take them on last weekend's camp out. The prepared burgers would be perfect for Friday night - all seasoned, formed and ready to go. All Don would have to do is fire up his fancy new Coleman camper grill while I chilled with a glass of vino. I love plans like that.
|Add the diced jalapeno's after you flip them. They add a nice KICK!|
