There is a great group of girls that I belong to and there is a bi-weekly recipe swap and I decided to join in the fun!! I've never joined them before and I once I saw that they were doing burger I knew I had to do so!
I love burgers!! I don't make them at home near enough. In fact, when we lived in Greenville the people at a local burger joint knew us by name and which number we would order. It also helped that they had some killer onion rings.
This swap I had the blog Becoming Pigzilla (love the name!). The only thing I changed from the original was subbing a poblano pepper instead of jalapeno. Mainly because no one in my family like heat.
For turkey burgers, these were actually very moist and flavorful! It also is a great way to get my burger fix but with less calories!
Cream Cheese and Poblano Stuffed Turkey Burgers
recipe adapted from this recipe at Becoming Pigzilla
8 oz. light cream cheese, softened
1 poblano pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
4 tbsp. worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper to taste
1 lb. lean ground turkey
Preheat your grill.
In a bowl, combine the ground turkey, pepper, onion, salt and pepper, and worcestershire sauce together until well combined.
Divide the mixture into 8 equal parts and make each into a large flat patty, being cautious not to over work the turkey. Add a small spoonful of the cream cheese to 4 patties. Take the remaining 4 patties and sandwich the others with the filling, tightly pinching the edges to seal in the cream cheese.
Grill over well heated grill until cooked.
Serve with buns of your choice and toppings.
