1 pound lean ground turkey 93/7

1 tablespoon milk

1 large egg, slightly beaten

2 scallions, light and dark green parts only, finely chopped

1 tablespoon minced jalapeno

1 tablespoon minced cilantro

1 medium sized clove garlic, grated

salt and black pepper to taste

2 tablespoons olive oil for pan

1/2 teaspoon butter for each patty, optional


To make the turkey patties 

Gently combine the turkey, milk, egg, scallions, jalapeño, cilantro, and garlic in a mixing bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Do not over work the ingredients, just lightly mix until they are combined. Divide the turkey mixture into 4 equal sized patties, flatten gently then set aside. 

Heat the pan over medium heat and add the olive oil. Sear the turkey burgers well in the skillet for 5-6 minutes per side or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F. A good sear ensures that the turkey burgers will be crispy on the outside and soft and juicy on the inside.  When the patties have reached the proper temperature, remove them from the skillet. Place a small pat of butter on top of each turkey burger so that it melts into the meat then set the burgers aside. 

How to serve turkey burgers

Serve these turkey burgers just like you would a traditional burger or top with our spicy blueberry jalapeño bbq sauce.
