Sweet & Spicy Turkey Burger

We love a good burger at our house.  When Lipton asked me to come up with a burger recipe for their “Secret Society of Burger Lovers”  I couldn’t pass up the opportunity.    The only qualification was it needed to be a burger, 8 ingredients or less and it needed to use Lipton Onion Soup Mix.  Using Lipton Soup Mix was easy  because I love it and use it as a seasoning in all kinds of things.  It is a must have for my crockpot brisket.

Sweet & Spicy Turkey Burger

Since we have a red meat allergy at our house I decided to go with a turkey burger.  I also had a jar of mango chutney sitting in my cupboard that I had been wanting to use for a while so I decided to add it in with the turkey.  I love the contrast of sweet and spicy in a dish.  Since the mango chutney was sweet I added in a jalapeno pepper to balance out the sweet.    Good choice!  You could probably use any flavor of chutney or even an orange marmalade.

The chutney  along with the Lipton Onion Soup Mix gave the turkey burger some great flavor and the chutney made the burger nice and moist.

In addition to using the chutney in the burger itself I made an aioli out of it.  It is my “secret sauce.”  It is a combination of mayo, chutney, jalapeno pepper and cilantro.  The aioli helps to intensify the flavor of the burger.  So good!

Then just add on your favorite condiments – tomato, onion, lettuce, etc. and you’ve got an amazing burger.

Sweet & Spicy Turkey Burger

A couple of burger tips for you:

1.  After forming patties I like to refrigerate them for at least an hour or two.  It helps the meat hold together better while grilling, especially when working with ground turkey which tends to be a bit more “delicate”
2.  If you are worried about the meat being cooked appropriately (especially when using turkey or chicken) use a meat thermometer instead of cutting into the meat to see if it is done.  Cutting into it releases the juices and dries out the meat.
3. Love combining or layering flavors in my burgers.  Using sweet and savory together.

    When breath is not a concern, thinly sliced red onions are all I need! But with company, I’d settle for some homemade coleslaw as a topping. :P
