Monterey Jack turkey burgers are one of my favorites. I can't get enough of them. I make them for dinner, then eat one more patty as a late night snack, then a couple patties for breakfast, and finish them off for lunch the next day. It's an addiction!

If you do Weight Watchers, it's 7 Points Plus for 1 garnished burger.

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 8

Source: Weight Watchers


  • 1 1/2 lb ground turkey
  • 2 Tbsp ketchup
  • 4 shallots, minced (or 1 onion)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2/3 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 8 slices turkey bacon
  • 8 whole wheat hamburger buns
  • 8 thick tomato slices
  • 8 lettuce leaves


  1. Mix turkey, ketchup, shallots, garlic, salt, and pepper in a large bowl until blended but not over mixed. Gently stir in Monterey Jack cheese. With damp hands, shape turkey mixture into 8 (1/2 inch thick) patties.
  2. Spray grill pan with nonstick spray and set on medium-high heat. An electric griddle or grill pan on the stove works great. The patties probably won't hold up on a BBQ.

    Cook patties until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F, about 4 minutes per side. After burgers have cooked 2 minutes, add bacon to pan and cook until crisp, about 3 minutes per side.
  3. Serve burger on bun topped with 1 bacon slice (torn in 2), 1 tomato slice, and 1 lettuce leaf.

  • 10 oz. ground turkey
  • 2 Tbsp. minced scallion (green onions)
  • 1 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. ketchup
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 oz. shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 4 strips turkey bacon
  • 4 hamburger buns, split & toasted
  • 1 medium tomato, cut in 4 slices


In large bowl, combine turkey, scallion, soy sauce, ketchup, garlic powder and pepper; mix well. Add cheese, and stir to mix well. Shape turkey mixture into 4 equal patties. Heat indoor ridged grill sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.

Grill bacon 3-4 minutes on each side, until browned. Transfer to plate, and set aside. Wipe grill clean. Arrange burgers on grill, and cook 6-8 minutes on each side until cooked through. To serve, layer buns with burgers, bacon, and tomato slices.
