Jerk Style Turkey Burgers with Mango Chutney Slaw

Taste Tip about this recipe: The cool, fruity flavor of the slaw offsets the spiciness of the burgers while adding a crunch!

This recipe provides 4 servings


1.5 cups coleslaw mix
1 mango, peeled, seeded and diced
1/2 cup thinly sliced red bell pepper
2 tablespoon light mayonnaise
1/4 cup mango chutney, divided
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup peeled, chopped apple
1/4 cup cup, panko  bread crumbs
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1 tablespoon Jamaican jerk seasoning
1 teaspoon chopped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon salt
1 pound ground turkey
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 ciabatta buns


Combine coleslaw mix, diced mango and red bell pepper. Stir together mayonnaise and 2 tablespoons chutney. Stir into coleslaw mixture; cover and chill in refrigerator, until ready to serve.

In a large mixing bowl, combine egg, apple, bread crumbs, red onion, jerk seasoning, cilantro and salt.
Add ground turkey and mix well. Shape into 4 3/4 inch thick patties. Brush patties with olive oil.

Grease grill rack before cooking. Preheat grill to medium high. Place patties on lightly greased grill rack. Cover and grill approx 14 mins, until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees, turning once halfway through grilling. Grill buns, cut-side-down, directly over medium heat about 2 mins or until light brown.

Serve each burger on buns topped with 1/4 cup coleslaw mix. Serve remaining coleslaw on the side.
