Turkey Burgers with Jalapeno Cheese Sauce Recipe


3 slices whole wheat bread, torn

1 cup fat-free milk, divided

6 garlic cloves, minced

1-1/2 teaspoons ground mustard

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1-1/2 pounds lean ground turkey

1-1/4 teaspoons all-purpose flour

3/4 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese

1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped

6 whole wheat hamburger buns, split

6 lettuce leaves

6 slices tomato

How to make it

In a large bowl, soak bread in 1/2 cup milk for 1 minute. Add the garlic, mustard, salt and pepper. Crumble turkey over mixture and mix well. Shape into six patties; set aside.

In a small saucepan, combine flour and remaining milk until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat. Add cheese and jalapeno; stir until cheese is melted. Keep warm.

Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill patties, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 165° and juices run clear.

Serve on buns with lettuce, tomato and jalapeno cheese sauce.
