Total Time:

1 hr

6 servings

  • Jalapeno Jam:
  • 2 cups canned sliced jalapenos (with the juice)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup orange marmalade
  • Turkey Burgers:
  • 2 1/2 pounds ground turkey
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 6 brioche buns
  • 6 leaves green leaf lettuce
  • 6 slices beefsteak tomato
  • 6 slices red onion
  • 12 slices Hass avocado
  • For the jalapeno jam: In a small saucepot, combine the jalapenos, sugar and marmalade and bring to a simmer over low heat. Simmer until the liquid reduces to a glaze, about 1 hour.

  • For the turkey burgers: In a bowl, combine the ground turkey, salt and pepper and mix well. Form the mixture into 6 patties.

  • Heat a cast-iron skillet over high heat until it begins to smoke. Add 1 tablespoon of the grapeseed oil to the pan and reduce the heat to medium. Add 3 of the patties to the pan and cook until the first sides are seared, 3 to 5 minutes. Flip and cook until the burgers are cooked completely through, about 5 minutes. Repeat with the remaining tablespoon grapeseed oil and the other 3 burgers.

  • Butter each of the buns on both sides and toast them in the hot skillet until golden brown.

  • Dress each of the bottom halves of the buns with lettuce, tomato, red onion and avocado. Place a burger on top of each dressed bun and top with 2 tablespoons of the jalapeno jam. Finish with a bun top.
