  1. Mix the ground turkey, garlic, onion, red bell pepper, green onion, cilantro, cayenne pepper, cumin, salt, and pepper together in a bowl. Divide the mixture into 8 small patties. Place two of the pepperjack cheese quarters onto each of 4 of the patties; top with the remaining 4 patties so the cheese is in the center. Press along the edges of the burgers to seal.
  2. Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the burgers in the skillet until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 6 minutes per side.

Great turkey burgers! I used a combination of red and green onion and added a 1/2 tsp. of smoked paprika and 2 Tbsp. of low sodium soy sauce. Instead of putting the cheese inside of the burger I just grilled them and melted the cheese over top. These burgers had a nice kick to them. These were very moist and very good - a healthy and nice change from regular beef burgers. Perfect on toasted whole grain rolls with lettuce, tomato and a dill pickle on the side!


Delicious turkey burgers! Yum! I made as is except for adding one egg white to help moisten and bind all ingredients together, and I topped with the pepper jack cheese instead of stuffing them. Grilled outside on the gas grill, but laid down foil over the grate, since I've had lots of trouble with turkey burgers (especially moist ones) sticking before, even when sprayed with Pam. Perfect solution! I served these on homemade onion rolls (yum) with spicy ketchup! Will make these again for sure.


I liked this Stuffed Burger but I found a stuffed burger on another site they had a recipes for a turkey stuffed burger with ground turkey, red onion, stuffing, and provolone cheese that was pretty good too.
