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 Jalapeño Powder
- 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.
Serve each patty in a chilled lettuce wrap.
Sometimes we use white cheddar, swiss, or pepper jack for these burgers! And if you don’t like turkey, you can use ground chicken!
