Grilled Turkey Burgers With Chipotle Sauce
For the Burgers
- 1 1/2-2 pounds ground turkey
- 1/4 cup bread crumbs
- 1 chipotle in adobo sauce, chopped
- 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh thyme, finely chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 2 red onions
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 cup watercress
- 1 1/2 cups red cabbage coleslaw
- kosher salt and black pepper to taste
- 6 burger buns
For the Chipotle Sauce
- 2 chipotles in adobo sauce, finely chopped
- 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
Watercress, a green or garnish in the mustard family, is related to collards and kale and known for its peppery taste.
Preheat your grill to 450°F.
In a large bowl, combine ground turkey, bread crumbs, chipotle, thyme and onion powder. Divide the mixture into 6 equal-sized patties. Season each patty with salt and pepper.
Combine chipotle, yogurt, mayonnaise, honey and garlic salt in a medium-size bowl. Set aside.
Cut red onions into 1/2 to 3/4-inch-thick slices. Using a basting brush , brush both sides with olive oil.
Place burger patties on the grill. Cook until internal temperature reaches 165°F on an instant-read thermomete , about 6 to 8 minutes per side. Brush the burgers with chipotle sauce on both sides during the last minute of cooking.
Grill the onions for 2 minutes per side and the buns for 15 seconds on the cut side.
Assemble each burger on grilled buns, starting with a spoonful of chipotle sauce, watercress, grilled turkey patty, red cabbage coleslaw and grilled red onions.
