Loaded with warm spices and topped with a cool salsa and monterey jack cheese, these turkey burgers are the perfect patties to throw on the grill.
By Amy Casey
Making burgers is simple. It doesn’t involve a complex recipe with many steps. Basically all that is needed to make award winning burgers is properly seasoned meat, form it into burgers and grill them.
Start by seasoning the ground meat which is ground turkey in this recipe. Using fresh onions, garlic, and cilantro adds a pop of flavor and juiciness to burgers. Sometimes turkey burgers can be bland so Worcestershire sauce, cumin, smoked paprika, and Monterey jack cheese ensure the tastiest burgers.
After gently combining the ground turkey and seasonings, form the burgers. Each patty should be about a quarter pound and just a little bit larger than the size of the bun. Make a small indentation in the middle of the burger. This will prevent it from expanding into a ball as it cooks.Print
