Stuffed Turkey Burgers

Tonight I made stuffed turkey burgers with mozzarella cheese and roasted red peppers. This really gets my mind going thinking about other possibilities for stuffed burgers.

1 package of ground turkey
1 tsp poultry seasoning
1 Tbsp grill seasoning, like McCormick Grillmates
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 cup of part-skim mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup roasted red peppers
salt and pepper
4 kaiser rolls
mixed greens for topping the burgers

In a mixing bowl, combine the ground turkey, poultry seasoning, grill seasoning and garlic. Mix well, but be careful not to overwork. Divide the mixture into 4 equal parts. Then divide each part in two forming a total of 8 parts into patties. Divide the cheese and roasted red peppers among 4 of the patties. Top each with a remaining patty. Work around the turkey to seal the edges of the burger. Season the top of the burgers with salt and pepper.

Preheat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Spray with PAM. Place the patties on the grill and cook for 5 minutes per side. Toast the rolls under a broiler or in a toaster oven. Place a turkey burger on each roll. Top with mixed greens.

I think next time I am going to make a basil mayo or aoli for the burgers. But regular mayo works just fine.
