Jerk Turkey Burgers

This weekends goal is to find ground turkey and buy 50lbs of it. I miss being able to just pop to the grocery store and get it cheap.

Once I do Im going to make all of the turkey things all of the time. I love that this has zucchini folded into it. Recently read up on how good zucchini is for you and bland enough that you can sneak it into anything. Woot. Jerk-Turkey-Burgers-with-Pineapple-Salsa-Healthy-Delicious-Double-Size-2-768x1152.jpg



  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 small zucchini, grated (about 1 cup)
  • 2 ounces light jalapeño or pepper jack cheese, shredded
  • 1 teaspoon jerk seasoning
  • 1 cup finely diced pineapple
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and minced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 4 hamburger rolls, toasted


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the turkey and zucchini. Season with jerk seasoning and a generous pinch of salt. Mix gently to combine to ingredients without overworking the meat. Form into 4 patties.
  2. Grill the burgers over medium-high heat, turning at least once, for 10-12 minutes or until cooked through. Top with cheese. Cover and cook 30 seconds to 1 minute to melt.
  3. While the burgers cook, prepare the salsa. In a second bowl, combine the pineapple, scallions, cilantro, jalapeño, and lime juice. Mix well and season to taste with salt.
  4. Top the burgers with the salsa and serve on toasted rolls.
