1 pound ground turkey

1 tablespoon jerk seasoning, plus more for sprinkling

1 small green apple, peeled and grated

1/2 cup finely chopped scallions

1/4 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

1/4 cup mayonnaise, plus more for brushing

1/4 cup mango chutney, roughly chopped

3 cups shredded green cabbage

1 carrot, shredded

Canola oil, for the grill

4 hamburger buns or challah rolls, split


  1. Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium high. Mix the turkey, jerk seasoning, apple, 1/4 cup scallions and the panko in a bowl; season with salt and pepper. Form into four 1-inch-thick patties and make a small indentation in the middle of each with your thumb to prevent it from puffing up on the grill. Refrigerate.
  2. Whisk the mayonnaise and chutney in a large bowl. Add the cabbage, carrot and the remaining 1/4 cup scallions, season with salt and pepper and toss to coat.
  3. Brush the grill with canola oil. Grill the turkey patties until browned and cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side.
  4. Brush the cut sides of the buns with mayonnaise and sprinkle with jerk seasoning; toast on the grill, about 30 seconds. Serve the burgers and slaw on the buns.
