Herb & Cheese Stuffed Burgers

I cheated all summer.  We ate a lot of burgers but I bought the frozen patties.  I love homemade burgers but just found myself falling for all the sales and ended up buying too many. 

I finally made some burgers that I am really proud of.  I was hesitant, I didn't think there would be enough herbs for the flavor to come through. I was wrong and they were perfect.  I loved the flavor.

I find stuffed things slightly annoying as they ooze out everywhere all the time and these were no different, but it seemed to work well and they were awesome.

Herb & Cheese Stuffed Burgers
Adapted from Taste of Home

1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tbsp. cream cheese, softened
2 tbsp. minced fresh parsley
3 tsp. dijon mustard, divided
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1/4 cup red pepper, chopped
3 tbsp. bread crumbs
2 tbsp. ketchup
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. dried rosemary, crushed
1/4 tsp. rubbed sage
1 lb. lean ground turkey, 93%

In a small bowl, combine the cheddar cheese, cream cheese, parsley and 1 tsp. mustard, set aside.  In another bowl, combine the onions, bread crumbs, ketchup, salt, rosemary, sage and remaining mustard.  Crumble ground turkey over mixture and mix well. 

Shape into 8 thin patties, spoon cheese mixture onto center on four of the patties, top with remaining patties and press edges to firmly seal.  Cook burgers in pan until done.

  1. These sound good. I still haven't tried cheese stuffed burgers, because neither my husband nor I like the mess. I bet my kids would flip for these though.

  2. I have not had a homemade burger in a while. These turkey ones sound really good. I need to make some soon :)

  3. How good those look. I am going to have to give these a try.

  4. Those look and sound delicious!

  5. OMG woman, these pictures are torture.

  6. I'm excited, I thought I'd have to adapt the recipe from the title however you use ground turkey too;0) they sound delicious.
