Our jerk burgers are a spicy Caribbean twist on your normal burger. These flavourful jerk burgers are given a healthy twist using lower fat turkey mince. Either cooked in a pan in your kitchen or over a hot barbecue, the smell of these jerk burgers are going to ensure that no one craves boring old beef. Load these aromatic and fiery burgers up with all of the toppings and you’ll feel like you’re basking on a Caribbean island in no time! If you don’t want to cook these in a pan, why not do them over the barbecue. Make sure the barbecue is nice and hot and cook them for the same amount of time. Enjoy the smoky aroma wafting the Caribbean spices around - yum.
