Goat Cheese Stuffed Turkey Burgers that won’t test your manliness.

turkeyburgerI like to keep it somewhat light on Sunday nights to start the week off right. This weekend I decided I would make turkey burgers but spice them up a bit with some goat cheese. My friend Jeb came over for dinner and I was hoping the turkey burger wouldn’t offend his manliness (although Jeb is such a nice guy I think he would eat anything I fed him). I’m happy to say that Jeb liked the burgers enough to have two! I served the burgers with a garden salad and sweet potato fries.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lbs turkey (7% fat, the 99% fat free can be super dry)
  • 3 scallions, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 half 3.5 ounce log of goat cheese
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon fresh oregano
  • salt and pepper
  • pita bread or buns (I used Arnold Sandwichthins that are a mix of the both!)

Assembly: In a small bowl, mash the goat cheese and butter into a paste and stir in minced oregano. In another large bowl, combine turkey, minced scallions and garlic, dijion mustard and salt and pepper. Use your hands to blend together (don’t work the meat too much) and then shape into 3 or 4 burgers. Take each burger and split them in half – add in a tablespoon of cheese mixture into the middle – and put the burger back together. Grill the burgers until they are cooked through.

  1. I normally use Rachel Ray’s turkey burger recipe but it normally doesn’t taste all that great. This looks amazing! We’re having it tonight!
