Jalapeno Turkey Burgers


Get fired up with this welcomed change to your usually long weekend grilling. Ground turkey is mild in flavour, which means the addition of jalapeno peppers makes this turkey burger a favourite!

  • 1 lb (500 g) ground Ontario turkey
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten

  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) tomato salsa
  • 6 slices of your favourite cheese such as cheddar, mozzarella or Monterey Jack (optional)
  • Guacamole (optional)
  • Cilantro (optional)
  • 6 burger buns

Combine ground turkey, onion, jalapeno peppers, garlic, egg and bread crumbs. Form into 6 patties. Grill on medium-high for 5-7 minutes on each side, until no longer pink in centre.
