This recipe is a delicious twist on a classic American food. And what's better than biting into a burger stuffed with savory fillings?
-28 oz lean turkey or beef (not extra lean)
-2 tablespoons finely minced onion
-salt & pepper to taste
-4 tablespoons cream cheese
-2 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
-¼ teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 fresh jalapeno pepper, diced (seeds removed if you prefer less spice)
-1 tablespoon olive oil
-Rolls & Toppings as desired
- Preheat grill to medium or oven to broil on high.
- In a small bowl combine cream cheese, cheddar cheese, garlic powder and diced jalapeno.
- Combine meat, salt & pepper and minced onion. Divide meat into 4 even pieces (7oz each). Take ¼ of the cream cheese mixture and flatten it into a pancake shape. Wrap beef or turkey around the cheese ensuring the cheese mixture is completely covered. Brush each burger with a little bit of olive oil.
Grill burgers over medium heat for 6-7 minutes on each side or until completely cooked. (Turkey should reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees and beef should reach 160 degrees.)
Place burgers on a foil covered pan approximately 6" from the broiler. Broil 5-6 minutes on each side or until completely cooked. (Turkey should reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees and beef should reach 160 degrees.)
