24 Jul 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.
