Spicy Turkey Burgers with Pickled Onions

Bring some heat to your day with the natural, smoky flavor of these Spicy Turkey Burgers with Pickled Onions.


1 cup red-wine vinegar
2 tbsp. packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground allspice
1 small red onion, halved and very thinly sliced
1 lb. 93% lean ground Plainville Farms® Turkey
2 tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
1 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. ground chipotle pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. ground allspice
1 tsp. canola oil
4 whole-wheat buns, split
8 tsp. reduced-fat mayonnaise


To prepare pickled onions: whisk vinegar, brown sugar, salt and allspice in a medium glass bowl. Cover and microwave on high until the mixture boils, about 2 to 3 minutes. Alternatively, bring the mixture to a boil in a small saucepan on the stove. Add onion and toss to coat.

To prepare burgers: preheat grill to high. Place turkey in a medium bowl and gently mix in cilantro, cumin, ground chipotle, salt and allspice until distributed throughout the meat. Form the mixture into 4 patties. Brush with oil.

Grill the burgers until cooked through and no longer pink in the center, roughly 3 to 4 minutes per side. Toast buns on the grill, if desired.

Drain the onion, discarding the marinade. Spread 2 tsp. mayonnaise onto each bun and top with a burger and pickled onions. Serves 4.
