These juicy, Turkey Burgers Stuffed with cheese are simple and delicious! Instead of topping your turkey burger with cheese, they're stuffed it stays melted and gooey.

Ingredients

  • 4 slices 2% American or part-skim cheddar cheese slices ((0.7 ounces each))
  • 1 pound 93% lean ground turkey
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • black pepper (to taste)
  • 4 whole wheat 100 calorie hamburger rolls (I use Martins potato)
  • 4 crisp Iceburg lettuce slices
  • red onion (sliced and separated)
  • sliced ripe tomatoes
  • sliced pickles
  • ketchup and mustard (optional, if desired)

Instructions

  • Set grill to medium heat. Clean and oil the grates.
  • Fold each slice of cheese into quarters to create 4 short stacks.
  • Divide the ground turkey into 8 equal balls then flatten into 1/4 inch thick patties.
  • Place a stack of cheese in the center of 4 patties and top with the remaining 4 patties. Pinch the edges to seal, then push the up the sides so they are an even thickness. Season both sides with salt and black pepper.
  • Place patties and oiled grill and cover, cook about 6 minutes per side over medium heat, or until the center is cooked through. Transfer to buns with toppings and be sure to let it cool before biting into the center so you don't burn your mouth.
