These turkey burgers get their kick and flavor from incorporating jalapeño peppers, Monterey Jack, breadcrumbs, and mayonnaise right into the patty. And the best part is they come together in just 25 minutes.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat grill to medium-high. In a medium bowl, place turkey, jalapeno, cheese, breadcrumbs, mayonnaise, 1 teaspoon coarse salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Mix very gently with a fork to combine, being careful not to overwork meat (which would make burgers dense).

  • Gently form meat into 4 equal-size patties, 4 inches in diameter and 1 inch thick. Press thumb in the center of each patty to make an indentation approximately 1/2-inch deep (this helps keep burgers flat during grilling).

  • Moisten a folded paper towel with oil; grasp with tongs and rub over grates. Season burgers with salt and pepper; grill until cooked throughout, 5 to 8 minutes per side. Serve on buns (toasted on grill, if you like), with desired toppings.

Cook's Notes

To prevent burgers from sticking to the grill, wait until they form a crust before moving them.

Please remove the ads grocery list from the middle of the recipe. It forces you to print the recipe on 2 pages wasting lots of ink & paper. You should offer formats for printing like other sites, such as on recipe cards or different sizes, whether we want to print the picture etc. Love the site but irritating to print out recipes!

Wow - best turkey burger I've had! It stayed so moist and it had great flavor. We toasted the buns on the top rack of the grill and our toppings were a little salsa, avocado slices, and onion. They were wonderful - highly recommended!
