These turkey (opens in new tab) burgers are amped up with the addition of spicy chorizo, which gives great flavour and makes the burgers extra juicy. The burgers themselves are so simple and easy to make, and whipping them up at home means you know exactly what is in them, with no hidden additives or preservatives. All you need is to combine a few ingredients and shape into burgers. When it's that simple it seems crazy to buy pre-made burgers from the supermarket.
Chorizo is a cured and smoked sausage that has a deep red colour as it is seasoned with dried smoked pimenton peppers and smoked paprika. This rich and flavourful Spanish sausage is a great addition to these turkey burgers, making them a truly special summer bite.
These turkey burgers are even better when topped with cheese. We used Manchego, in keeping with the Spanish chorizo, but you could use any sharp, flavourful cheese. Serve them in toasted buns with all your favourite toppings. We topped ours with pickles, slices of tomato and baby gem lettuce.
Burgers are always a hit at a barbecue (opens in new tab), so make a change from regular beef burgers and try these tasty turkey burgers with chorizo.
HOW TO MAKE TURKEY BURGERS WITH CHORIZO
- Combine the chorizo, turkey mince and paprika in a large bowl; mix with your hands until well blended. Shape the mixture into 4 burgers. Grill the burgers for 5 mins on each side or until cooked through. Top each burger with a slice of cheese and cook until melted, around 1 more min.
- Serve on burger buns with pickles, slices of tomato and baby gem lettuce.
- 120g diced chorizo
- 500g turkey leg mince
- 1tsp smoked paprika
- 4 slices of cheese (we used Manchego)
