Jalapeno Cheddar-Jack Turkey Burgers

Jalapeno Cheddarjack Burgers

love a good turkey burger recipe. I have fun with them, and used to try different recipes every few weeks. I went with a jalapeno cheddar-jack flavor this week just because that’s what popped into my head honestly and I already had the cheese at home. Sometimes ideas just come to me, other times I think about it and stress out about it for a couple days. This was one of the better weeks – AND I came in under $40 for the week (though I’ll have to buy eggs mid-week so it’ll push it over that).

Since I haven’t been eating bread I haven’t made any turkey burgers in a long time. So I had a craving and I found my way around the bread thing.

Option 1:

I had it salad-style. I just laid everything on top of a bed of spinach with some grape tomatoes and went to town on it with a fork and knife. It’s just not quite the same as holding the burger in your hand though…

Option 2:

Sweet potato buns – these can be a little messy and you have to have the right size sweet potato. But since my love for those bright orange balls of starch runs deep I deal with the messiness using them as buns can bring.

I want to try some Paleo sandwich rolls but ran out of time/energy yesterday. I’m trying to make myself relax a little more since stress is probably the cause of all of my current problems.

    Jalapeno Cheddar-Jack Burgers
  • 20 oz lean ground turkey (93%)
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, diced
  • 1/4 medium red onion, diced
  • 2 oz shredded Cabot cheddar-jack cheese (I use this brand because it's lactose free)
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • Chipotle Ranch Dijon Mayo
  • 3 tbsp light mayo
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp ranch seasoning
  • 1 tsp chipotle chille seasoning


    For the Burgers
  • Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl (hands work best). Form into patties. (five servings)
  • Heat pan over medium-high heat and spray with cooking oil. Place patties in the pan and cook for about 5 minutes on each side.
  • Serve on a bed of greens topped with caramelized onions, mushrooms, jalapenos and grape tomatoes. Drizzle with Chipotle Ranch Dijon-Mayo. Or just use a bun and regular mayo if that satisfies you.
  • For the Mayonaisse
  • Mix everything in a small bowl until well-combined. Taste-test for spiciness preference
