I found this recipe here.

the Ingredients


Adding the Turkey

5 Patties to Be

Grilling the Patties

Mine Shown with Tomatoes and Guacamole!

Pepper Bacon Burger

Makes 5 (easily could have made 6 and probably will next time)

1 whole egg, beaten
1/4 cup bread crumbs
6 strip bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled
4 whole serrano pepper, finely chopped, or 2 jalapenos
2 tablespoons milk
1 20 ounce package ground turkey
1 whole Anaheim chili pepper, seeded and cut into rings
1 whole onion, thinly sliced and separated into rings
2 tablespoons margarine or butter
5 whole lettuce leaves
5 whole sandwich thins, or hamburger buns, split and toasted
5 slices cheddar cheese slices

In a large mixing bowl stir together egg, bread crumbs, bacon, serrano or jalapeno peppers, and milk. Add ground turkey and mix well. Shape meat into five 3/4-inch-thick patties.

Grill patties, on an uncovered grill, directly over medium coals for 15 to 18 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in side of patty registers 160 degrees F, turning once.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan or skillet cook the Anaheim or mild green chili pepper and onion in margarine or butter about 10 minutes or until onion is tender. Serve burgers on lettuce-lined buns. Top burgers with cheese and pepper-onion mixture.

Now Justin and I are not a big fan of the onion so I just sauted the Anaheim pepper in butter and left out the onion all together. I thought these burgers were awesome!!! Even Justin, who is super picky, ate the sauted pepper and seemed to enjoy it.
