  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.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Really tasty, even though I modified somewhat based on what I had. I did not use the cheese, but added about 1/3 cup SW style Egg Beater, and they held together fried in my cast iron pan. I'll...

I grilled these on the Foreman. I was very surprised at how easy they were to make. The two patties sealed together nicely without any problems. I tried to jazz them up with all kinds of fan...

I promise you don't even need the egg! They will stay together, and the cheese in the center is kind of what makes them special. :)
