Recipe by MariaMiller
READY IN: 35mins
YIELD: 5 burgers


  • 20
    ounces ground turkey breast, extra lean
  • 14
    cup dry breadcrumbs, unseasoned
  • 1
  • 2
    green onions, finely chopped
  • 2
    teaspoons garlic, minced (store bought)
  • 2 -3
    tablespoons barbecue sauce
  • 1
    teaspoon Mrs. Dash seasoning mix
  • 12
    teaspoon black pepper, coursely ground
  • 5
    tablespoons fat free shredded cheddar cheese
  • 5
    teaspoons diced jalapenos (or Giuliano Jalapeno Spread)


  • In a large bowl, mix together the first 8 ingredients (turkey - pepper). If the turkey mixture is too wet, you can add in some more bread crumbs.
  • Lay out wax paper for forming the patties. Scoop mixture out by 1/4 cup then adjust if necessary so you have 10 equal sized mounds.
  • Form into 10 patties, with 5 of them being slightly larger than the others (to cover the filling).
  • On five of the patties, spread one tsp of the Giuliano Jalapeno Spread then top with shredded cheddar cheese.
  • Top with remaining 5 patties and press the edges to seal.
  • Patties will be piled up in the middle, so press in the middle to flatten.
  • Grill until cooked through (about 12-15 minutes).
