Candied Jalapeno Turkey Burgers

I love turkey burgers and love jalapeno peppers. I love them combined even more. This is one of my favorite ways to prepare both.

Turkey Burger Recipe
1 pound ground turkey
1/4 cup candied jalapenos, chopped
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
5 whole wheat flat bread sandwich rounds
2 sliced ripe avocados
2 sliced tomatoes
lettuce for each burger

Preheat grill. In a large bowl combine ingredients, mix until combined. Using your hands shape into 5 burger shaped patties. Press your finger through the middle of the pattie. This will help the center to cook evenly with the rest of the burger. Brush the grill with olive oil. Place the patties on the hot grill and cook about 4 minutes per side. Place one slice of Monterey Jack cheese on top of each turkey burger and let melt slightly. Place cooked burgers on buns and top with avocado, tomatoes and lettuce.

Candied Jalapenos
1 1/4 cups fresh jalapeno peppers, sliced
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
Combine jalapeno slices, sugar and water in saucepan. Over medium heat, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 15-20 minutes until jalapenos are cooked and liquid is reduced to a thick syrup. Remove from heat. Place in a clean jar and refrigerate for up to a week.
