Southwest Turkey Burgers

This year, I am all about grilling out.  I grilled out some last year but for some reason this year, I can’t get enough of it.  Maybe it’s because I love sitting outside in the backyard smelling citronella and listening to the sounds of summer.  Whatever the case, I’ve been grilling a lot lately.  I love grilled burgers SO much.  Tommy doesn’t love them as much as me so I don’t make them often but I wanted a burger and I wanted to try something different.  I came across this recipe on one of my favorite blogs and decided to give it a try.

Recipe from My Kitchen Cafe

2 lbs ground turkey (you could use ground beef if you want but we never use it for anything. Also, I halved the recipe and used 1lb for just Tommy and I and it made 4 burgers)

1/2 cup minced red onion (I omitted)
1/4 cup minced green onion, white and green parts
2 egg whites, whisked
1 teaspoon ground chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
dash cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon paprika
1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce

Preheat a grill to medium-high.

In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey with the minced red onion, green onion, egg whites, seasonings and worcestershire sauce. Mix gently but thoroughly. Divide the mixture into six equal portions and shape them into burgers.

Place the burgers on the grill and cook until the turkey is just done (about 4 minutes per side) and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center registers 165 degrees.

Serve the burgers on buns and top with garnishes.

Pig Rating:  The Pig didn’t love these as he isn’t a huge fan of southwest flavors but he liked it okay. 

Mrs. Pig Rating:  I AM a fan of southwest flavors and I thought these were wonderful!  They had great flavor to them and I love grilled burgers.  This one is easy and so flavorful.  I will be making these again…the Pig can just have plain ones and I’ll make these for myself!  🙂

  1. This sounds like something B would love. Perhaps I’ll make some for while I’m away this summer. Then he can just reheat them for meals.
