Caribbean Turkey Burgers

1 pound (approx) ground turkey meat
1/2 bell pepper
1-2 T Caribbean Jerk seasoning
1 T finely chopped fresh parsley
About 1/2 cup ground flax seeds
About 2 T crushed pineapple or chopped mango
Salt & pepper

Salsa:
1 small can crushed pineapple or 1 mango chopped finely
1/2 to 1 diced jalepeno
1 T orange juice

Mix together, form into patties and grill (or cook on stove or bake or cook in a George Foreman, etc.). For the salsa, mix together and serve on top of burgers.

This is pretty fast to make, about 15 minutes and then another 20 or so to grill.

Comments: If you like spicy food, you can also chop a jalepeno and/or habanero in the burgers. We served them with Roasted Asparagus with Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette, Roasted Sweet Potatoes, and Spelt Buns - all recipes from Ms. Scratch.Love and you can click on the links to find her recipes. I followed all exactly, except the Spelt Buns, for which I replaced the butter with olive oil and I made my own buttermilk. My buns were a bit of a failure (they didn't rise), as you will see in the picture, but I believe I fed my starter too soon before using. They tasted really delicious and we used them for our burgers tonight anyway.
