Turkey Burgers with Blue Cheese + Serrano Ham Chips + Roasted Red Peppers

Some food items are meant to be together.

In my mouth, preferably.


Turkey Burgers with Blue Cheese + Serrano Ham Chips + Roasted Red Peppers


I’m talking some good combos here:

Chocolate + Peanut Butter (aka the king of all food combos, don’t deny it)

Lemon + Raspberry

Honey + Figs (holla!)

Honey + Salt + Peanut Butter

Apples + Turkey 

Olive oil + Serrano Ham


Turkey Burgers with Blue Cheese + Serrano Ham Chips + Roasted Red Peppers


And then there’s this whole Turkey + Apple + Roasted Red Peppers + Blue Cheese + Serrano Ham Chips + Havarti + Spinach combo – which, needless to say it, is mindblowing. Plus it is probably the reason why I have such huge expectations when it comes to sandwiches hey.


Turkey Burgers with Blue Cheese + Serrano Ham Chips + Roasted Red Peppers


Did you read the Serrano Ham Chips part?? Oh gosh – let me tell you how badly you need to try those – they’ll be the only thing you’ll want to snack on from now on. Like, they are like Potato Chips: crispy, salty and quite addictive… but obviously 100 times better since we’re not talking boring potatoes here, but yummy serrano ham. Thanks God I cooked a lot of those, because it’s not as if a big amount of them made it to the actual burgers.

Don’t blame me – I’m sure you would have done the same oh well.


Turkey Burgers with Blue Cheese + Serrano Ham Chips + Roasted Red Peppers


I’m going to tell you all a little secret. Thing is, every time I eat these (which alas, doesn’t happen as often as I’d like aka everyday), I go bun-free and have them salad bowl style. It’s not that I don’t like bread – like, you know it’s pretty much my favorite thing ever. Especially if “bread” means “donuts”.

But I’m weird like that and I think that it’s a waste of bread to use it in burgers… I prefer to eat the “filling” alone and then the bread.

That’s the way I roll.

((See what I did there? Oh, I’m so not-funny, I’d better stop now and leave you all with these burgers))


Turkey Burgers with Blue Cheese + Serrano Ham Chips + Roasted Red Peppers


And by the way, the reason I was telling you about my “no bread + filling” rule, is that I wanted to let you know that if you can’t have bread, you can totally make all the fillings and toss them in a bowl of baby spinach (or your favorite greens, actually)… it’ll be awesome anyway.

    I love turkey burgers! I like that you used oats in these too. Extra healthy. Also caramelized onions on a burger –> dying.

    I will be dreaming of serrano ham chips now! This burger is just stacked with flavor. Looks insanely good!

  • Reply Alyssa March 8, 2014 at 8:19 am

    Everything involved here…yes. Big ‘ol yes. Don’t know how I’ve gone so long with serrano ham chips in my life, but they are a must make, ASAP. And I’ll totally forgo buns with burgers so that I can save more room for delicious toppings (like these!). Except if the bun is pretzel bread or an onion roll…those I can’t resist.

    This burger looks amazing, Consuelo! Definitely a recipe to make 🙂

    I am drooling majorly all over my Saturday breakfast looking at this, Consuelo! If I saw this on a restaurant menu I would definitely order it. There are so many tasty things in that burger that I think I’d be in heaven with every bite. Especially with those serrano ham chips. This one is definitely getting pinned right now 🙂

    Ok I’m normally not the biggest burger fan but I love turkey burgers and burgers with apple in them AND ham chips and roasted peppers? Sold. I don’t like bleu cheese unfortunately but I think everything else would make me one happy camper. 🙂

This is a work of art, and I can see how this would totally set huge expectations that most any other sandwich would have a pretty hard time meeting! Yeah, pinning instantaneously!
