Wheat germ adds a nuttiness that complements the turkey and spices. For more spicy heat, use Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeño peppers.

How to Make It

Step 1

Prepare grill.

Step 2

Combine first 7 ingredients in a large bowl. Divide mixture into 6 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty.

Step 3

Place patties on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 5 minutes. Turn patties over; grill 2 minutes. Divide cheese evenly over patties; grill an additional 5 minutes or until a thermometer registers 165°. Remove from grill; let stand 5 minutes.

Step 4

Place onion slices on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 4 minutes on each side or until browned and tender.

Step 5

Place rolls, cut sides down, on grill rack; grill 1 minute or until toasted. Place 1 patty on bottom half of each roll; top each serving with 1 onion slice, 1 tablespoon Chipotle-Poblano Ketchup, and top half of roll.

I made these for Super Bowl for my husband and I. We really loved them. They felt decadent and delicious. I would eat them even if they were the full fat version. Two giant thumbs up!

These burgers were fabulous! They were juicy and delicious. I couldn't fine the poblano ketchup so I used regular ketchup. I will definitely be making this again.

We really liked these. We used bread crumbs instead of wheat germ, and skipped the cheese and grilled onions, and still loved them. We think they are better than beef burgers!

We really like this change for turkey burgers. The spices are good, but not hot, so everyone in the family can eat them. I always add about a tbsp of minced garlic & 1 egg to help keep the burgers shape. I usually serve with potato wedges & a corn & black bean salad.

These are delicious!! The spice is just right, and the onions added just the right touch. We tried both cheeses & both were excellent, and that ketchup!!!! WOW. I did use the wheat germ, but to me, it didnt add flavor. Great summer BBQ burgers

These turkey burgers are really good and I make them all the time. I don't add the wheat germ, and cook them indoors for convenience. Don't skip on the chipotle-poblano ketchup, but if you don't have the ingredients, use cumin and chili powder to jazz up regular ketchup. Also, they are really good if you add sauteed mushrooms and onions.

These were great! We used BBQ sauce instead of the ketchup as that is what I had on hand. We then froze the extra un-cooked patties-hopefully they turn out well in the future. The burgers were juicy and full of taste. I served some Trader Joe's baked Sweet Potato Fries on the side along with fresh fruit. An all-over yummy, healthy dinner!

These are my hubby's favorite turkey burgers and a staple in our house in the summertime. You have to try these with the chipotle-poblano's pure foodie heaven!
