J's Turkey Burgers


These are J's awesome turkey burgers.  He has tweaked the recipe many times and they are always so tasty.  They go great on whole wheat buns with Sweet Baby Ray's Barbecue Sauce.  Here's his latest version with estimates of amounts...

J's Turkey Burger Recipe:
put in a bowl and mix with clean hands:
~1 - 1 1/4lbs of lean ground turkey
1/2 small can of diced green chilies
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
~1/4 cup bread crumbs, whole wheat works fine
ground black pepper
I also use a couple shakes of Trader Joe's Barbecue Grill & Broil (salt free) seasoning

shape into 4-6 burgers (press into flat patties not domed)
spray burgers with cooking spray on both sides to keep them from sticking
place on a hot GRILL.  Once the lower 1/3 of the patty is brown and the meat is easy to turn,
FLIP ONCE, continue cooking until patty reaches an internal temperature of 160'F.
