Delicious, healthy homemade turkey burgers with a fruity Mexican twist. The turkey burgers have only three ingredients – turkey mince, Mexican marmalade and a pinch of salt.
Yes! Mexican marmalade you read it correctly!
I can’t get enough of the Mexican marmalade made by the fab little company In a Pickle. Spread thickly on hot buttery toast, scooped up with a celery stick and now it’s found its way into my burgers.
The Mexican marmalade is a spicy orange marmalade with ginger and chillies it makes a really tasty addition to the burgers and the sugar caramelises as they cook so the burgers turn a lovely sticky brown. If you can’t get hold of the Mexican marmalade then use orange marmalade and a pinch of chilli flakes or mango chutney.
The turkey burgers are super simple to make – open the meat bag/pack – tip in the marmalade and a pinch of salt, mix together with your hands and form into patties. Done. Just griddle or grill and serve.
I like to serve these burgers with a nice homemade Mexican roast tomato salsa, sliced avocado and Monterey Jack cheese all tucked up in a freshly baked ciabatta roll.
