Turkey Burgers With Cilantro Mayonnaise

These lighter burgers are great for any gathering.

  • Yield: 6 burgers


  • 2 pounds ground turkey, preferably a blend of thigh and breast meat
  • 1/2 cup minced red onion
  • 1/4 cup minced green onion, green parts only
  • 1 or 2 serrano peppers, minced, to taste
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon hot paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 6 burger buns or potato rolls, warmed in oven
  • 1 cup grated Monterey jack cheese
  • 12 small lettuce leaves
  • 12 slices tomato
  • 1 cup thinly sliced red onions
  • 1 avocado, thinly sliced
  • 1 recipe Cilantro Mayonnaise, for serving


  • Preheat a grill to medium high. In a large bowl, combine ground turkey with minced red onion, green onion, peppers, egg, olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, paprika, coriander, and cumin. Divide mixture into 6 equal portions and, using your hands, shape into 6 burgers. Place burgers on grill and cook until just done and a thermometer inserted into the centers registers 165 degrees, about 3 minutes per side.

  • Serve burgers on buns with cheese, lettuce, tomato, sliced red onions, and avocado. Garnish with Cilantro Mayonnaise.
