10-Minute Turkey Burgers

10 minute turkey burgers 1_small

I almost didn’t post this recipe because it’s so quick and easy, I’m not sure it qualifies as a real recipe. This is the dinner I make most often in the summer when I don’t have time to actually cook anything.

These are simple, but juicy and well-seasoned turkey burgers that taste delicious. I mince up three different kinds of bell peppers (which is the only prep this recipe requires) for added moisture and flavor. (You don’t have to mince the peppers, but I do it because my picky eaters wouldn’t touch this burger if they saw big chunks of vegetables in it.)

Throw in some cumin and seasoning and hand these puppies over to the hubby for grilling! Everybody’s gets a yummy, healthy and delicious meal and you did it in 10 minutes or less. Can I get an “Amen!”

(I use the McCormicks Steak or Chicken Seasoning in almost all my grilling recipes. It’s a perfect blend of garlic, spices and herbs, so you don’t have to measure out a zillion different things. If you don’t have it, add garlic salt, pepper and herbs to taste.)
