Jerky Turkey Burgers

Are you looking for a kicked up turkey burger?  Then you need to try this one! It has great flavor along with a bit of heat. Enjoy!

1 1/3 pound ground turkey breast (dark meat is fine too)
1 garlic clove, minced
3 scallions, thinly sliced
1 serrano or jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
1-inch piece of ginger root, grated
1 teaspoons dried thyme 
1 teaspoon allspice
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon coarse black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
extra-virgin olive oil 
1 ripe lime

For Serving (optional, but highly recommended): 
hamburger buns (I prefer wheat)
tomato slices
mango chutney or hot pepper jelly

Preheat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Combine the turkey, garlic, scallions, ginger, thyme, allspice, nutmeg, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Form mixture into 4 large patties. Drizzle the pan with a touch of oil. Place patties in the hot pan and cook 6 minutes on each side or until cooked through (no pink). Squeeze the juice of 1 ripe lime over the patties before removing them from the heat. Place the cooked patties on bun bottoms and top with lettuce leaves, thick slices of tomato and a dollop of mango chutney or hot pepper jelly.

Serves 4.
