(Yields 6 – 8 burgers)

Ingredients:

1 pack of frozen lean ground turkey, 1lb
1 tbsp jerk paste seasoning
½ tbsp grated ginger
3 garlic cloves minced
½ tbsp brown sugar
½ tsp dried thyme
½ tsp mustard powder
½ tsp all spice
½ tsp cinnamon powder
2-3 sprigs chopped green onion
1/3 cup red onion chopped
splash of balsamic vinegar
splash of olive oil
1 egg

Directions:

  1. In a bowl, add thawed ground turkey and mix in with onions, garlic, ginger, brown sugar, green onion, jerk paste, dried thyme, mustard powder, allspice and cinnamon powder. You can mix with your hands or spoon.
  2. Add a splash of balsamic vinegar and a splash of olive oil. Mix again.
  3. Add one cracked egg and mix.
  4. Form ground mix into patties to desired thickness. Should yield 6-8 patties. Note: this patty mix might feel soft but don’t let this fool you. Turkey is a much drier meat and once cooked, these patties will bind and won’t fall apart.
  5. Grill patties for approximately 10 minutes on each side. Might be more depending on how thick the patties are.
  6. Once cooked, take off grill and let stand. These burgers are ready to be served!

Serve as is or on a multigrain hamburger bun, open face, or use head lettuce wraps in substitute for buns.

For a little bit of sweetness, top this turkey burger with a grilled pineapple ring. We sliced fine pineapple rings and put them on the grill to lightly caramelize. The beauty of this burger is that it is so flavourful that it is easy to forgo extra condiments that often have processed and high sugar content.
