Loaded Turkey Burgers
Serving size 4 burgers (4 oz each)
- 16 oz (1lb) ground lean ground turkey
- 1 small red bell pepper, finely diced
- 5 scallions, finely diced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tsp freshly minced hatch pepper (substitute Serrano or Jalepeno)
- olive oil for sautéing
- fresh ground pepper
Toppings can be varied, but we used….
- Spinach lettuce
- Shredded Mexican cheese
In a fry pan, add in the red bell pepper, scallions, garlic cloves, and hatch pepper. Sauté for approximately 2 minutes till veggies have soften a bit. Remove from heat & cool veggies until you can handle them (just a minute or so).
In a medium sized bowl, combine the veggie mixture with the ground turkey & freshly ground black pepper.
Grill (on a George Foreman in our case) or fry until cooked through. Top with shredded Mexican cheese, fresh roma tomato, spinach lettuce, ketchup & mustard. Serve & Enjoy!
This was our first burger since we’ve been back in the states! It was SOOO YUMMY (not to mention healthy!)
