Spicy Sweet Mayo

  • 1 cup light mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup coarse-grain mustard
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
  • hot pepper sauce to taste
  • 1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper


  • 1 ¼ pounds ground turkey breast
  • ½ large onion, grated
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
  • 2 tablespoons barbeque sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon liquid smoke flavoring
  • 1 tablespoon steak seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon dry mesquite flavored seasoning mix
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ large onion, sliced
  • 5 hamburger buns, split

Combine mayonnaise, mustard, honey, horseradish, hot pepper sauce, and cayenne pepper in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate.

Mix ground turkey, grated onion, jalapeno, barbeque sauce, Worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke, steak seasoning, and mesquite seasoning in a large bowl. Form into 5 patties.

Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, and continue cooking and stirring until the onion is very tender and dark brown, 15 to 20 minutes more.

Cook the patties in a medium skillet over medium heat, turning once, to an internal temperature of 180 degrees F (85 degrees C), about 6 minutes per side. Serve on buns topped with spicy sweet mayo and caramelized onions.
