Southwestern (Turkey) Burgers

Adapted from Rachael Ray  – Our changes – we used beef, and instead of 1.5 lbs, we used almost 1 lb.  I had used the jalapeno the day before in gazpacho, so that got left out, too.  Other than that, we used the recipe as written and OH MAN these were good.  We always use the super lean beef, and this was still incredibly moist and flavorful.

1.5 lbs ground dark meat turkey (93%)
1 jalapeno chile, minced (ribs and seeds removed for less heat, if desired)
2 oz grated Monterey Jack cheese (about ½ cup)
1/4 cup plain dried breadcrumbs
2 T mayo
coarse salt and pepper
Toppings (suggested: fresh tomato salsa, sliced avocado, sliced pickled jalapeno chiles)

In medium bowl, place turkey/beef, jalapeno, cheese, breadcrumbs, mayo, 1 t coarse salt, and 1/4 t pepper.  Mix gently to combine, but don’t overwork meat.  Form meat into 4 equal patties.  Grill to desired doneness.

    I love that you cook seafood. I have so many fun recipies to try…are you ready for some of mine? Do I need pictures? Are they to be my own or can I steal them from the cook book?
