- 1 egg, slightly beaten
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 pound uncooked lean ground turkey or lean ground chicken
- 1/4 cup fine dry bread crumbs
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/4 cup jalapeno jelly, melted or barbecue sauce
- Prepackaged shredded red cabbage, thinly sliced red onion, and/or desired toppings
- 4 potato rolls, kaiser rolls, or hamburger buns, split and toasted
- In a bowl combine egg, salt, and pepper. Add turkey and breadcrumbs; mix well. Shape the chicken mixture into four 3/4-inch-thick patties.
- In a large nonstick skillet, cook patties over medium heat in hot oil for 10 minutes, turning once halfway through cooking time or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the burger registers 165 degrees F . Brush patties on each side with jalapeno jelly or barbecue sauce. Cook 1 minute more on each side to glaze.
- To assemble, place cabbage and red onion on bottom of rolls and top with meat. Makes 4 servings.
- Place patties on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat for 10 minutes, turning once halfway through cooking time or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the burger registers 165 degree F. Brush patties on each side with jalapeno jelly or barbecue sauce. Cook 1 minute more on each side to glaze.
- Lightly grease the rack of an electric table top grill. Preheat grill. Place patties on the grill rack. If using a covered grill, close lid. Grill patties until chicken is no longer pink (165 degree F). (For a covered grill allow 5 to 7 minutes. For an uncovered grill, allow 14 to 18 minutes, turning once halfway through grilling.) Brush patties with pepper jelly or barbecue sauce and cook 1 minute more on each side as above.)
