Prep Time
10 minutes
Cook Time
20 minutes
  • 1 cup diced peaches (about 2 large)
  • ⅓ cup thinly sliced green onion
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped seeded jalapeno
  • 1½ pounds ground turkey
  • ¼ cup finely chopped sweet onion
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley
  • 1 teaspoon whole grain mustard
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt, plus more for salsa
  • ½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 dashes tabasco sauce
  • Olive oil for oiling grill and buns
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 1 cup sunflower sprouts (optional)
  1. Preheat a grill to high heat.

  2. Combine first four ingredients together in a bowl, season to taste with salt and pepper and set in refrigerator to chill.

  3. Combine turkey, onion, parsley, mustard, 1 teaspoon sea salt, Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco sauce in a bowl and gently blend until mixture just comes together. Divide turkey mixture equally into 4 balls and form each ball into a patty about ½-inch thick.

  4. Oil grill and cook turkey patties, turning once until cooked through, about 4-5 minutes per side. Lightly brush cut sides of buns with olive oil and place cut side down on grill until toasted, about 20-30 seconds. Place cooked patties on burger buns and top each with a spoonful of peach salsa and a bunch of sprouts, if desired.
