Detroit - Ingredients:

  • 1½ pound ground turkey
  • 1 jalapeno or 2 Tbsp finely diced jalapeno*
  • Juice of 2 limes and zest** of 1
  • 1 Tbsp black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp reduced-sodium Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ¾ cup shredded smoked mozzarella cheese
  • 6 hamburger buns



Preheat outdoor grill (a George Foreman®-style grill may also be used). In a medium size bowl, mix the first 5 ingredients plus 2 Tbsp of olive oil. Make equal size burger patties and lightly brush with remainder 2 Tbsp of oil. Cook for 5-7 minutes, flipping once, or until an internal temperature of 165° F is reached. Top each with an equal amount of cheese and melt in a toaster oven or in oven on broil. Serve on a toasted bun. (If using George Foreman® grill, once cooked, unplug the grill and add cheese to the burger. Leave the grill open and allow the cheese to slightly melt.)
