Heads-up burger lovers! July is your month hosted by Kita from Girl Carnivore – 31 days of bloggers sharing different recipes. It probably goes without saying that my menu the last two weeks has pretty much been taken over by burgers. #notcomplaining.
There are some great giveaways too, so be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post to see what’s up for grabs and enter!
Half-way through and it’s finally my turn. Woot.
Favorite thing about being a homeowner? Having a yard. Favorite thing about having a yard? Owning a grill. Love my grill.
I have two favorite burgers that I make frequently – my Barbecue Onion Burger, and this one.
Jamaican “jerk” seasonings pair with sweet mango and honey, along with tangy barbecue sauce, to transform ordinary ground turkey into something zesty and perfect for summer!
Jerk Turkey Burgers with Mango
Prep time: 15 minutes
Chill time: 1 hour
Cook time: 15 minutes
• 1 ripe mango peeled and cut into large chunks
• 1/2 cup BBQ sauce
• 2 tablespoons honey
• 1 tablespoon lime juice
• 1 1/2 teaspoons Jerk seasoning
• 1/4 cup minced scallions
• 1/3 cup plain breadcrumbs
• 1 pound ground turkey
• 4 buns
• olive oil
In a food processor, blender together the mango, BBQ sauce, honey, lime juice, and jerk seasoning. Add 1/4 cup of this mixture, the scallions, and breadcrumbs to the ground turkey; mix well. Shape into 4 flat patties and brush both sides well with oil. Place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
Preheat grill for medium-high. Oil the grill grates well and cook burgers for 6 minutes per side or until cooked through. (Turn carefully so burgers do not fall apart.)
Place on buns with remaining sauce and fixings of your choice!
