When I got home from the pool Friday night, Michael had prepared his specialty: Turkey Burgers! I’ve mentioned turkey burgers a lot on this site. It happens to be one of our favorite dinners to make.
Calories: 306 (each patty)
1.5 pounds ground Turkey meat (lean)
Chopped Jalapenos (as much as you want, the heat tends to cook off)
Grated Colby Jack Cheese
1/4 cup dried breadcrumbs
2 Tablespoons light mayo
Salt and pepper
Mix it all together and form the patties.
Cook in a skillet with olive oil 5-8 minutes per side depending on how thick the patties are. We’ve had difficulties cooking the Turkey Burgers on the grill for some reason. It seems to work better on the skillet. We’ve also tried using feta cheese and chopped black olives instead of the jalapenos and Colby Jack.
Question: Do you have a variation on turkey burgers?
