Juicy Jalapeno Cranberry Turkey Burgers

Total Time 30 minutes


  • 1 Pound Ground Turkey
  • 1 Clove Garlic - Diced
  • 1 Jalapeno - Seeded and Diced
  • ¾ Cup Red Onion - Diced
  • ¾ Cup Mushroom - Diced
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • ½ teaspoon Cumin
  • 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/3 Cup Dried cranberries - Chopped


  • Heat olive oil over medium. Add red onion, garlic, mushroom, and jalapeno to heated pan. Cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add paprika, cumin, and red pepper flakes to the pan and cook for an additional 2 minutes, moving frequently, until mushrooms just start to soften and all ingredients are coated in spice mixture. Set mixture aside to cool.
  • Incorporate cooled onion mixture into the ground turkey along with dijon mustard, worcestershire sauce, dried cranberries, and egg. Be careful not to overmix.
  • Chill turkey mixture for at least 15 minutes in fridge before cooking.
  • Form 4 turkey patties for cooking. Keep them wide and thin as they may shrink during the cooking process. Using your finger, press down and create a "dimple" in the middle of the burger. This will help keep the burger a uniform width.
  • Cook burgers in a non-stick pan about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165.
  • Serve with cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato and/or guacamole.


If you're not a fan of spice, you can leave the jalapeno out. The turkey burgers will still be juicy and full of flavor!
