These turkey burgers are juicy, flavorful, and they have a gentle kick!

The first couple of dinners this week, I way over spiced everything and we ended up throwing the leftovers away because we knew we wouldn’t eat them. But alas, on Thursday I finally nailed a good meal.


I mixed turkey with the perfect variety of spices that you probably already have, chopped jalapeno, and shredded mozzarella. They turned out so juicy and flavorful. I made three burgers out of 1 lb of turkey because we prefer bigger burgers, but you can definitely make four!

I served the burgers with air fried potatoes and some vegetables/dip. The meal was a hit! I probably won’t make burgers any other way.
