The relaxing weekend flew by and manic Monday has arrived once again.  I don’t know about you, but I had a horrendous argument with my wake-up alarm this morning.  It kept ragging on me to get out of bed and I kept throwing insults back at it in an effort to get it to shut up.

Typical Monday routine…even if I AM a little bit excited about being able to finally go back to work today.  Two weeks of R&R after my surgery is plenty, thank you very much.

Another activity that’s par for the course on Mondays is coffee! I always need an extra jolt (or twenty) of caffeine to help me get my Monday motor running.  Thank goodness I have THIS and a batch of my cinnamon streusel cupcakes to help me with my morning routine! Be sure to click the photo to save it to Pinterest, because these are amazing on a Sunday morning!

If you’re shaking your head in disgust at the thought of adding coffee to your turkey burgers, let me assure you that it’s anything but disgusting.  Giving your burger a massage of spices that are a little bit smoky, a little bit spicy, and a whole lot of rock ‘n roll is nothing short of yummi, and it results in one heck of an awesome coffee rubbed burger!

Another awesome healthy burger option are my chicken fajita cheeseburgers. You should give that recipe a try, too! Oh, and don’t forget to bake up some healthy sweet potato fries, too!

These coffee rubbed burgers are a little bit smoky, spicy, and sweet all put together into a juicy ground turkey patty. Healthy and fully loaded with yummi flavor, they'll be a hit on the dinner table.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound lean ground turkey, divided equally 4 ways and formed into patties
  • 1 Tablespoon ground coffee beans
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes, finely ground
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder

Instructions

  1. In a spice grinder, food processor, or using a mortar & pestle, combine all of the spices. (If you don’t have any of those tools, place the spices into a zip-top plastic bag and close the top. Use a rolling pin to crush and blend the spices together.
  2. Liberally apply the seasoning blend to both sides of each patty. Rub the spices in so that it will form a nice crust when you cook it.
  3. The burgers can be grilled, fried in a pan, or even cooked under a broiler. Be sure to use proper food safety practices by cooking them until the juices run clear and the internal temperature reaches 163 degrees for optimal safety.
