Martha Stewart Living Turkey Burgers with Red Onion and Jalapenos

The men in my family can at times be a little overly meat oriented. My husband can go about two days without meat before he gets grumpy and binges out on beef jerky or other meat snacks. My two boys aren't much better, they have been known to eat almost an entire package of bacon. Due to this meat addiction I have been trying to find healthier types of meat to include in my family's diet, such as turkey, fish and chicken. Recently, Martha Stewart Living magazine had a recipe for turkey burgers with red onions and jalapenos. 

The ingredients in this recipe were easily found at my local grocery store. The prep time is next to nothing, with only the red onion needing slicing and cooked and the avocado mashed. I grind my own turkey meat, so that took an additional 10-15 minutes. Instead, of using an outdoor grill I used my Forman grill inside. My total time was about 25 minutes, but that included the time needed to grind the meat. 

My two sons thoroughly enjoyed this recipe. At first they were unsure of the onions and jalapenos, but ended up eating their whole portion. I appreciate that this recipe uses turkey meat, which I have been trying to incorporate more into my family's diet. The red onions bring a sweet taste which nicely compliments the jalapenos. I especially enjoyed the avocado spread, which was a nice contrast with the rest of the burger. This recipe makes a nice alternative to a beef burger without sacrificing on taste.
