Jalapeño and Cheese Turkey Burgers

jalapeno-burgers

These burgers are seriously the bomb.com! I like to eat mine open faced on a toasted slice of sprouted wheat bread. You can bun the whole thing, or have it protein style sans bread. If you do add a slice of bread be sure to add another yellow container to your fixate portions. These are GREAT for meal prep and keep well in the fridge.

20oz lean ground turkey

  3. Heat grill or frying pan to medium/high heat and spray with coconut oil or non-stick spray.
  4. Add patties to pan or grill and cook on each side for roughly 5 minutes each, or until no longer pink. Remove from heat.
