How to Make Turkey Burgers

Turkey burgers are a great low fat alternative to your typical hamburger. Top with cabbage, red onion and the sauce of your choice for a beautiful and delicious meal.

Directions
1. 
Prepare the Poblano Pesto Aioli. Store, covered, in the refrigerator.
2. 
In a medium bowl, combine egg whites, oil, cream, salt, curry, chili powder, black pepper and garlic; stir to combine.
3. 
In a large bowl, combine turkey, onion, bread crumbs, jalapeno peppers and chives. Fold egg white mixture into turkey mixture; mix well. Shape turkey mixture into six 3/4-inch-thick round patties.
4. 
For a charcoal or gas grill, grill the patties on the well-oiled rack of an covered grill directly over medium heat for 14 to 18 minutes or until no longer pink (165 degrees F), turning once halfway through grilling. During the last 1 minute of grilling, top burgers with cheese and grill buns, buttered side down, directly over medium heat for 30 seconds to 1 minute or until just lightly toasted.
5. 
To serve, spread about 2 tablespoons of Poblano Pesto Aioli on each bun top and top with about 1/4 cup shredded lettuce. Place a burger on each bun bottom and secure top to bottom with a long pick.

Note

  • *Handling Hot Peppers:

    Because jalapeno peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with jalapeno as much as possible. When working with them, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the jalapeno, wash your hands well with soap and water.

Make Ahead Tip

  • Place patties on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet and cover with another piece of waxed paper. Chill up to 24 hours.
