Jalapeno Turkey Burgers

The burgers we have been eating are positively delicious and if there is a topping such as sauteed mushrooms or guacamole, we don't even miss the bun.  This turkey burger turned out very flavorful and moist with the addition of onions, cilantro, garlic, jalapeno pepper and spices.  Gerry grilled them perfectly and we topped them with homemade guacamole.

Jalapeno Turkey Burgers
Makes 8-10 burgers

3 pounds ground turkey
1 1/4 cups white onion, diced
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 jalapeno pepper, diced
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons red pepper flakes


Using clean hands, mix together ground turkey, onion, cilantro, garlic, jalapeno, ground cumin, paprika, and red pepper flakes in a large bowl.  Divide mixture and form into 5 ounce patties.  Grill over medium-high heat until burger is cooked through.  Flip when bottom side of burger no longer sticks to the grill grates.  Top with guacamole if desired.

I made a full recipe of these and followed these directions for freezing:
Using whatever raw burgers you are not planning on eating immediately, alternate patties with squares of parchment/wax paper.  Place on a sheet pan and place in freezer for a couple of hours until just barely frozen.  Place in a freezer bag, label and freeze.  Thaw before grilling according to directions above.
