Lettuce Wrapped Grilled Jalapeño Cheddar Turkey Burgers
I’m taking a small break from my recap blogs since we have family in town this week, but I’ll get one up soon! While everyone was getting ready for the day, I decided to squeeze in a quick recipe. It’s my excuse to say “hello!”
One of our favorite meals in the summer is Jalapeño Cheddar Turkey Burgers! They are so easy to make, a healthy source of protein, and delicious!
We eat these turkey burgers like once a week! The best part is that they are just as tasty the next day, and I’m always team leftovers! You can control the spice by eliminating all the jalapeno seeds. We like a little spice, so we throw in about a tablespoon.
Jalapeño Cheddar Turkey Burgers
- 1 lb Ground Turkey
- 1 Cup Chopped Jalapeños (without seeds)
- 1/2 Small Yellow Onion
- 1 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- 1 Tsp Jalapeño Seeds

- 1 Tsp Onion Powder
- 1 Tsp Garlic Powder
- 1 Tsp Black Pepper
- 1 Tsp Dried Dill Weed
- 1 Tbsp Low Sodium Soy Sauce
- 1 Tbsp Brown Sugar
- Add all of the ingredients into a large bowl and combine.
- Form the mixture into five burger patties.
- Grill each side for 5-minutes (until they reach 175-185 degrees)If you are not using a grill, cook each side for 6-7 minutes.

Sometimes we use white cheddar, swiss, or pepper jack for these burgers! And if you don’t like turkey, you can use ground chicken!

Hope Bugs is treating you well and there’s no crazy leap or sleep regression happening right now. Those can be a little overwhelming sometimes. I’m impressed that you still have the time to blog as much as you do!
1. What are your favorite burger toppings?
Usually Swiss cheese and a Chipotle mayo BUT…we just recently bought a bacon jalapeño jam from a local business at a craft fair…OMG. it’s so good! That with a little pepperjack cheese is my go-to right now! (We Be Jamming. They are based in Rhode Island and they ship if you are interested!)
2. What side do you always have with burgers?
It depends on my mood. Sometimes I just do a typical BBQ chip, but there is a local market about 5 minutes from me that had AMAZING pasta salads and potato salads. I usually buy those if I’m having an actual cookout.
3. Do you grill in the summer?
You mean do I breathe air? OF COURSE! Now that we bought a house with a deck, it’s so much easier to just step right out and fire up the grill. It used to be across our VERY long driveway and it wasn’t close to the door at all. Not ideal with two kids 3 and under. Now I can just pop over to the grill quickly while the kids sit at the kitchen island and watch an episode of Bluey!
I may have to add this recipe to my rotation. We like our burgers with a little kick to them, so this sounds right up our alley!
What is your favorite food to grill in the summertime? How is Bugs enjoying your beautiful yard? Hope it’s not too brutally hot down there! MA got a glorious heat (and humidity) wave last week that kept me hidden inside with the kids for most of the day. I was only able to take them outside to play in the morning before lunchtime and our evening walk was completely out of the question! We are back to the 80s this week though!
