Turkey Dinner Burgers

Ingredients
1
egg, slightly beaten
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon ground black pepper
1
pound uncooked lean ground turkey or lean ground chicken
1/4
cup fine dry bread crumbs
1
tablespoon olive oil
1/4
cup jalapeno jelly, melted, or barbecue sauce
 
Prepackaged shredded red cabbage, thinly sliced red onion, and/or desired toppings
4
potato rolls, kaiser rolls, or hamburger buns, split and toasted

Directions

  1. In a bowl combine egg, salt, and pepper. Add turkey and breadcrumbs; mix well. Shape the chicken mixture into four 3/4-inch-thick patties.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet, cook patties over medium heat in hot oil for 10 minutes, turning once halfway through cooking time or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the burger registers 165 degrees F. Brush patties on each side with jalapeno jelly or barbecue sauce. Cook 1 minute more on each side to glaze.
  3. To assemble, place cabbage and red onion on bottom of rolls and top with meat. Makes 4 servings.

From the Test Kitchen

Broiler method:

Place patties on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat for 10 minutes, turning once halfway through cooking time or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the burger registers 165 degree F. Brush patties on each side with jalapeno jelly or barbecue sauce. Cook 1 minute more on each side to glaze.

Electric Tabletop Grill Method:

Lightly grease the rack of an electric table top grill. Preheat grill. Place patties on the grill rack. If using a covered grill, close lid. Grill patties until chicken is no longer pink (165 degree F). (For a covered grill allow 5 to 7 minutes. For an uncovered grill, allow 14 to 18 minutes, turning once halfway through grilling.) Brush patties with pepper jelly or barbecue sauce and cook 1 minute more on each side as above.)
