Recipe:2 cloves chopped garlic
1/2 sweet onion, finely chopped
1 1/2 lbs ground turkey
2 teas Dijon mustard
1 teas soy sauce
salt and freshly ground pepper
8 slices pepper jack cheese, cut from an 8 oz block
1 beefsteak tomato
olive oil
4 lg buns

Preheat grill over med-hi heat.
Add garlic, onion, turkey, mustard,soy sauce, and salt and pepper, to taste, to a large mixing bowl. Mix well with a wooden spoon. Divide the turkey into 8 equal- sized balls and flatten them into patties. Lay 2 slices of cheese on 4 of the patties and cover each with another patty. Pinch the edges to seal the patties closed, so the cheese will not melt out.
Season the tomatoes with salt and pepper and brush with olive oil. Grill for 2 minutes per side. Remove from the grill to a plate. Toast the buns on the grill and set aside.
Grill the burgers until cooked through, about 5 to 6 minutes per side. transfer the buns and top with mayo, lettuce and grilled tomatoes. Enjoy!

Do you know that I've never cooked with ground turkey? Always think the burgers sound yummy. I'll have to try it...when my husband is out of town. He would be offended that it's not beef.

Lisa, you have the best recipes. I have never had a turkey burger...I've never used ground turkey for that matter. I need to try it. It might be too healthy though! LOL
Hope you are well!

This looks SO GOOD!!! Thank You for sharing!

Greetings Lisa ~ I'm finally back from a summer long blogcation.

Thees stuffed burgers are definitely a *must try* recipe. I've always liked turkey as a lighter alternative to ground beef. Your burgers looked so good! With summer closing this is a nice reminder that grilling can still be done indoors with the same BBQ flavor.

I'd like my stuffed T-burgers with your strawberry shortcake for dessert.

I've enjoyed catching up. Please stop by...I look forward to the return of your company.
Sweet wishes,
