I started to eat burgers at Fuddruckers last year while I was pregnant and it was part of my cravings too. And now I am totally in love with them. For a while I had been wanting to make them at home, but wasn't very sure about how successful I could be with the attempt. Thought of making it with ground turkey and there it was a flavorful burger which all three of us enjoyed.
For the burger:
Ground turkey - 1 lb
Shallots - 1 big or two small finely chopped
Green chilies - 2 finely chopped
Paprika/cayenne pepper - 1/2 tsp (as much as you need)
Salt to taste
Pepper powder - a little
Egg - 1
Oregano - i used dry oregano, its optional
Lemon juice - a few drops
Mix all the above together and put it back in the fridge for a couple of hours to set.
Make sure that the mix is at room temperature before you start making them.
Heat a skillet and just rub it with oil. In the mean time, preheat the oven at 400 degrees (broiler).
Divide the mix into equal portions and then place it on the hot skillet, after two minutes turn it and leave it for another two minutes.
Now place them on the bottom half of the bun and place it in a baking tray, followed by a slice of cheese on top and put in the oven for two to three minutes. Remove them from the oven and allow it to rest for a couple of minutes before you are ready to serve them. If you don't like them well done, you remove them once the cheese melts. Putting it in the broiler setting, will ensure that the burger doesn't become dry and stays juicy and tasty!
Lettuce leaf - seperate the leaves and put them in ice cold water with a few drops of vinegar (helps to maintain the crunch)
White onion - sliced in circles
Pepper jack cheese or any cheese that you like
For the sweet chili sauce:
Chili garlic paste - 4 tbspn
Hot sauce - a few drops
White vinegar a few drops
Ketchup - 3 tbsp
Honey - 2 tbsp
Mix it all together and set it aside. You can add more or less spicy as per your need.
A juicy and tasty burger is ready and you will wanna make it more often at home that go to a burger joint to have it
