Jalapeño Popper Inspired Turkey Burgers Portrait

Jalapeño Popper Inspired Turkey Burgers




Yield 4 Burger Patties

The flavors of jalapeño poppers in a super fun, light, turkey burger! Spicy up burger night with this super easy turkey burger recipe.



Preheat your grill or grill pan on medium-high.

Combine all ingredients and form into four patties.

Place on the hot grill and cook for about 4-5 aside.

Top with cream cheese for that jalapeno popper texture and flavor!


  • I removed the seeds and ribs of the jalapeno, but you can leave them or more heat. I will probably do that next time. 
  • Use the whole scallion, white and green parts. 
  • Lots of people have told me their turkey burgers don't stay together. I think the secret is in the cooking process, not ingredients. Make sure your grill is nice and hot. There should be a sizzle when you place them. Then, leave them alone for at least four minutes until you can see them about halfway cooked. Doing so will create a nice sear and grill mark. If your turkey burgers are sticking, it probably means you are trying to flip them too soon. 
  • I topped my first one with cream cheese but then ran out. A wedge of Laughing Cow works just as good and is a little lighter! 
  • Nutritional information is just for the patty.
