Turkey burgers with caramelized onions are infused with barbecue sauce for extra flavor. Top these burgers with Pepper Jack cheese and more caramelized onions. The perfect summer grilling dinner.
We eat a lot of turkey burgers in my family. Don’t get me wrong….we love a good, juicy, fatty beef burger, but in the spirit of moderation and balance, turkey burgers have become more of a staple for us. This recipe has definitely become a family favorite in our house.
Ground turkey by itself can be dry and lacking in flavor. So, I like to add ingredients to my turkey burgers that pack a flavor punch and keep them moist and juicy at the same time.
- caramelized onions
- barbecue sauce
- Pepper jack cheese
- sliced avocado (optional)
This BBQ-Onion Turkey burger is loaded with caramelized onions and barbecue sauce. Topped with pepper jack cheese and more caramelized onions, there is a lot of flavor going on here. I like layering on sliced avocado for the perfect burger bite. Grab a toasted bun and your favorite toppings and try this burger today! Delicious!
