Carmelized Onion and Sweet Pepper Turkey Burgers


Hey everyone,ย  hope Valentine’s Day Weekend was a “sweet” success. We spent the weekend with my family visiting from AZ, had a blast! We saw “Valentine’s Day” Saturday night, played at the beach, watched the sunset and ate lots of good food! To top it off, my very sweet husband ordered me a new camera that I can’t even wait for it to arrive this week! Really was a great weekend.

We’ve also got the entire week off for “ski week” around this town. Funny right? Only in Newport Beach! The boys and I will be hanging at Disney most of the week ๐Ÿ™‚

So, since we all probably overdosed on chocolate and other sweets over the weekend, I thought I’d share a rather light and very simple lunch and or dinner recipe that you will love! These turkey burgers are such a treat, hope you enjoy.



Caramelized Onion and Sweet Pepper Turkey Burgers

2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 large onion, thinly sliced

1 Cup chopped sweet peppers (I get the big bag from costco, they are mild and delish)

4 Jenni-O prepared Turkey Burgers, seasoned

Light Mayonnaise


4 Orowheat Sandwich Thin Buns

2 Cups fresh Baby Spinach Leaves

1. Preheat grill to medium high heat. Place oil into a large skillet over medium heat. Saute onions and peppers for 7-10 minutes or until softened and golden. Reduce heat to low.

2. Grill turkey burgers until cooked through, about 3 minutes per side depending how thick each burger is. Lightly spread mayonnaise and mustard onto buns and place burgers on bottom bun. Top burgers with spinach and caramelized onions and peppers. Close with top bun and eat!


Loved the sunset in Corona Del Mar last night!

Who else saw “Valentine’s Day” over the weekend? Thoughts on it? Have a great Monday ๐Ÿ™‚

    These look so delicious! I love turkey burgers and sweet peppers – yum!

    I saw “Valentine’s Day” too! I thought it was a less-cohesive version of “Love Actually.” I was a bit disappointed, but I didn’t really expect too much. There were cute and funny parts though, and my husband gets major points for going with me ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

      Lol! I know I saw Love Actually, but am blanking on who was in it? Yah, it definitely wasn’t the best movie around, but entertaining none the less. Major points to the guys for taking us!!

    I love the “bun” that the burger is on! I want to see that movie, but I am sure that it will be a renter for us!

    Kimball and I saw Valentine’s Day…OK. Liked seeing so many great actors but hated that they put McSteamy and that other guy together at the end. The audience was saying “no no no” praying they wouldn’t show a kiss.
    Love Jennifer Garner and for once I even like Ashton.

      Lol! We thought the exact same thing about the movie! Had they just changed those few scenes it would have been so much better!! We were totally entertained though ๐Ÿ™‚ Tell the kids we say Hello! Would have loved to drop Valentine’s Day goodies off to you guys ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow, This looks delish! I think I am off to the store for the peppers. No costco in our area, but the regular store should do. Thank you so much for all the recipes. We have tried several that they have all been ones the girls enjoyed.

    We love the sandwich thin buns also! Although I loved all of the actors in ‘Valentine’s Day’, I wouldn’t care to see it again. ‘When In Rome’ and ‘Leap Year’ were much better!
