Stuffed Turkey Burgers

Show: Food Network Specials
Episode: 10 Days to a New You

1 1/4 pounds lean ground turkey breast
1/2 cup chopped roasted red peppers
1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1/4 teaspoons salt
Freshly ground black pepper

Divide turkey into 4 equal sized rounds. Make 2 equal sized patties out of each round so you have 8 patties total. Sprinkle 4 of the patties with 2 tablespoons red peppers and cheese, and top with remaining patties, working the turkey around the edges to seal burgers closed. Season with salt and a few grinds of pepper. Grill or broil until cooked through, about 5 minutes per side.

These are delicious! They have become a staple in my house!

just made these- except i put red and green peppers with some onions and chunks of mozzerella cheese for the stuffing they were to die for! new favorite recipe! they freeze well, i kept 3 in the freezer for the rest of the week. I just wrapped a damp paper towel around them, put them in the microwave for about three minutes- tasted just as fresh!
