All American A1 or BBQ Stuffed Turkey Burger

Saturday, February 19, 2011

I hope everyone is having a great OP weekend so far! As promised, here is the last turkey burger of the week! Here is another one of those turkey burgers that calls for a leaner meat because of a healthy fat I wanted to use, the light laughing cow cheese wedge. Normally, I love my burgers to be in the 85%-94% fat free range because it is more juicier but because I want that nice cheesy filling in the center of my burger, I needed to use a turkey meat that is either 95%-97% fat free or 99% fat free. If you use the 99% fat free turkey just remember to increase the meat to 8.5oz which will yield about 7 oz cooked. The 99% fat free turkey meat only shrinks about 20%. Also, you would have to add 1 more healthy fat with the 99% fat free ground turkey.

I used the A1 steak sauce for this particular burger. I left out the pepper because the sauce already has enough spice in it already and it would have brought me over in my condiments. I love the taste of A1 steak sauce so I would have to say this is my favorite turkey burger. I have also tried the BBQ sauce mixed in and tasted pretty darn good if I do say so myself. My favorite BBQ sauce to use is Walden Farms Thick and Spicy. Don't let the name fool you because I didn't find it very thick at all but it was tasty. I always like to leave you with options because everyone has different tastes. Try both and see which one you like better! This rounds up the end of Turkey Burger Week at Sandy's Kitchen! I hope you found a turkey burger you enjoyed!

All American A1 or BBQ Stuffed Turkey Burger

8 oz raw 95-96% fat free ground turkey - should yield 6 oz cooked (1 lean)
2 tbsp Smokin Joe Jones BBQ Sauce (2 condiments) Or 2 tsp A1 Steak Sauce (2 condiments)
1/4 tsp garlic salt (1 condiment)
2 Light Laughing Cow Cheese Wedges, any flavor (1 healthy fat)

Combine turkey meat, A1 or BBQ sauce and garlic salt. Form meat mixture into two balls. Make an indention in each ball and place the laughing cow cheese in the indention. Wrap the ground turkey mixture around the cheese wedge so that it is in the center. Flatten the patties. Once all are formed, cook however you like to cook burgers. Grill (indoor or out), cook in hot skillet, or broil under broiler. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side or until an internal thermometer has reached 165 degrees.
