Spicy Chipotle Bacon Turkey Burgers
In my mind, there’s nothing better than spending time in the kitchen..
My blog, What Runs Lori, has always been my baby, my work-in-progress, one love of a project, my safe haven for thoughts, ideas, recipes, and it’s been neglected for far too long. I’ve been cooking, photographing (some of my dishes) and enjoying the heck out of eating and exploring new restaurants, but sadly, I just haven’t been writing.
And sometimes we all need a change. Big, small, humongous, change is good. Today, change happens at What Runs Lori.
For starters, the blog has been given a facelift. More responsive layout, wider look, quicker loading capabilities, and *gasp* a new post!
Recipes?! YES! That’s why you came here, right? To look at food, to find food, to eat food… well, maybe not eat food but hopefully after browsing around whatrunslori.com you’ll find a recipe that suits your fancy for kitchen creating.
Any why not start with this easy Paleo recipe? Crispy bacon, juicy turkey, spicy jalapeños, tangy chipotles- this recipe has it all and is just waiting for you to make it.
- 1 lb ground turkey
- ½ lb thick cut bacon, pan fried and roughly chopped
- ½ jalapeno, finely diced/chopped
- ½ can (7-0z can) chipotle peppers, roughly chopped
- 3 tbsp fresh parsley, roughly chopped
- ¼ cup white onions, finely chopped
- 2 green onions, chopped
- 1 egg
- 2 tbsp each ground cumin and coriander
- salt and pepper
In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients. Mix well with a large wooden spoon or your hands, making sure that everything gets incorporated well.
In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive or coconut oil on medium-high heat. While pan is heating, form burger patties with a small amount of turkey mixture and add it to the heated pan. (mixture may be slightly hard to keep in patty form so as soon as you create your patty, add it to the heated pan). Repeat this step until you fill the pan (I did about 4 patties at a time. Cook each patty for about 5 minutes on each side, flip, cook for another 5 minutes, remove from pan onto a plate. Repeat until you’ve used all of the turkey mixture.
Time to plate and add sides (see below)!
Note: I added water to my pan throughout the cooking process and added a lid to slightly steam the turkey burgers and reduce any burning- although browned pieces are always good eats. 😉
Sides to include:
Slightly tangy, Farmhoues Culture Raw Caraway Sauerkraut (SO good)
Thick cut home pickles
Juicy yellow heirloom tomatoes
Tender baby kale leaves
Drizzle of spicy Sriracha sauce
