Burgers! A hard days work is rewarded with fresh off the grill burgers. Not having great success with Not Greek Turkey Zucchini Burgers and having scored a box of turkey burgers at half price in the freezer, I figured it was time to try again with Jalapeno Swiss Turkey Burgers.
This was one of the most simply written recipes ever! Seriously. The burger was left wide open for many, many modifications.
After lasts weeks success of caramelized onions on the Sliced Brat Hoagies, I decided on another attempt with the same process on jalapenos instead of onions.
To a simple untoasted hamburger bun, mustard, lettuce, turkey patty, caramelized onion, pepper jack swiss, and garlic pickles slices were added.
Scaled for Likability: Good
You know the problem, this table and all of its counterparts love burgers. So much so, that a burger has to be really, really bad before its classified as a No, Thank You much less a Fail. This simple burger was like a fancy version of a school burger. Nothing over the top, filled the need for a burger, was good without being over the top, and most of all quick and easy.
To make this a great burger would be very simple, too. Butter and toast the bun, make fresh pressed turkey patties with onion and garlic powder/salt and pepper/a dash of canned jalapeno juice, caramelize a sweet yellow onion, a pablano pepper, and a jalapeno, and use garlic sandwich pickles for even thickness instead of garlic pickle spears cut into attempted slices. One could even add bacon or fry the patty in bacon grease, add avocado slices or a layer of guacamole, change the cheese to muenster or provolone or havarti, or switch the plain buns for a ciabatta or Texas Toast. Such a versatile burger.
