Taste of Home Sweet and Spicy Fusion Burgers

We are big burger eaters in my house and I make about one burger recipe a week during the summer months. Most of the burgers that I make are beef, which my family loves, but I have been trying to make a larger variety of ground meats. I have tried a number of different turkey burger recipes, but haven't found one that my family is in love with. The June/July issue of Taste of Home magazine had a recipe for Sweet and Spicy Fusion Burgers, which looked like a contemporary spin on a turkey burger dish.

This recipe has a large amount of ingredients, 16 in total. However, all the ingredients were easy to find at my local grocery store or I already had them in my pantry. I ground my own turkey meat, which I did in the morning and it took about 10 minutes in total. The prep took me about twenty minutes, with a total time of approximately 30 minutes. I used my indoor grill to prepare the burgers, so my grill time was less than if I had used a traditional grill. Instead of spreading the cheese on the naan, I crumbled it over the burger.

My family thoroughly enjoyed this recipe. The taste of the burger is sweet, with a nice bite from the sriracha. It reheated well the next day when my husband took the leftovers for lunch, since only the burger needed to be microwaved. This burger is a knife and fork burger, it isn't very easy to pick-up and hold, which my two sons got a kick out of. This recipe is one that I will use again, it's a great turkey burger recipe.

For the recipe go to Taste of Home Sweet and Spicy Fusion Burgers.


  1. Actually--that does look good, and very interesting. I'd have to make this when the kids are at their grandparents'. Neither of them would appreciate this, methinks.

  2. This looks good and its worth a try.

  3. I like preparation on the plate. It looks delicious

  4. @karensomethingorother My kids are hit or miss with what they will eat. Some days they wont eat their dinner, but will devour the leftovers the next day, like they did with this dish :)

    @mannoy Thanks, it was delicious!
