Kickin' Bacon Cheddar Turkey Burgers

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by sbera007

Finally, a moist delicious turkey burger! I cooked the vegetables before mixing them in, but they can just as easily be added raw. Also, don't worry if a lot of the cheese runs out; it is mostly used to add fat to the turkey to avoid the dry turkey burger many of us are used to.

I made just half of this recipe & probably changed the intended taste of these burgers when I used just 3 slices of the bacon (instead of 5), less than 1/4 of a small jalapeno & left out the 'salt to taste!' Still we enjoyed the burgers & would consider making them again! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in the current Pick-A-Chef]
