Recipe: Best Turkey Burger I have ever tasted!!

I have had many turkey burgers in my day, especially because I don't eat red meat and haven't since the 6th grade. I just wanted to share this recipe I cooked last night. My carnivore husband even praised it!!


Pat's Stuffed Turkey Burgers

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 Vidalia onion, finely chopped
1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon soy sauce
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
8 slices pepper jack cheese, cut from an 8-ounce block
1 beefsteak tomato, sliced into 3/4-inch thick rounds
Olive oil
4 large onion buns or rolls
Spicy Mayo Sauce, recipe follows
Preheat grill over medium-high heat.

Add the 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.

*Cook's Note: With your finger, press down on the center of the patty. This will keep the juices locked in and prevents the burger from puffing up.

Season the tomatoes with salt and pepper, to taste, 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 burgers to the buns and top with Spicy Mayo Sauce, lettuce and grilled tomatoes.

Spicy Mayo Sauce:

1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons hot chili sauce (recommended: Sriracha)
1/2 lime, juiced
Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl.
