Cheese Stuffed Turkey Burgers


  • 1 large egg
  • 3 T tomato sauce
  • ½ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • ¼ t pepper
  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 2 oz Monterey Jack cheese, cut into six ½-inch cubes
  • 6 whole wheat buns

Mix the egg, tomato sauce, parmesan cheese, pepper and turkey in a bowl with a large spoon, then form into 6 burger patties. Stuff a cube of cheese into the center of each burger. Make sure it is completely buried and covered on all sides, otherwise it will melt all over the grill.

Grill approximately 5 minutes per side. Do not mash or press with a spatula while cooking. If you see the cheese begin to ooze out you will know they are done. Serve on whole wheat buns with homemade catsup. Makes 6 burgers.
