Cheese-Stuffed Turkey Burger with Sriracha Mayo and Bacon Onion Jam
- 4 Servings
- 25 mins Prep Time
- 35 mins Total Time
- 1 lb. 85% Lean / 15% Fat Ground Turkey (however, use whatever lean point you prefer!)
- 4 slices white cheddar cheese
- ½ a yellow onion, finely chopped
- 1 tsp. salt
- ½ tsp. pepper
- 1 tbsp. garlic powder
- 1 tsp. paprika
- 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
- 1 cup microgreens
- 4 pretzel buns
Bacon Onion Jam
- 4 slices of bacon
- ½ yellow onion
- 1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
- 4 tbsp. mayo
- 1 tsp. sriracha
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
Step 1First heat the grill to high heat. Prepare the Bacon Onion Jam by cooking the bacon in a skillet. Remove the bacon and add the chopped onion.
Step 2Cook over medium heat for about 7 minutes, add back in the chopped bacon, and 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar. Cook for an additional 5 minutes on medium low and set aside.
Step 3Now prepare the burgers, place the ground turkey in a large mixing bowl and add diced onion, salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, and Worcestershire sauce. Incorporate well with hands or a wooden spoon. Using a ¼ cup measuring cup, carefully form 4 thin patties and place on a sheet of parchment paper.
Step 4Take a slice of cheese and fold in half, then in half once more. You should end up with 4 small squares. Place this stack on top of one patty. Repeat for the remaining 3.
Step 5Using the remaining ground turkey mix, form 4 more thin patties and place on top of the cheese. Press the edges together and ensure the cheese is fully enclosed in the burger.
Step 6Begin grilling by greasing the grates with canola oil. Cook the burgers on the first side for 5 minutes, covered. Carefully flip them over and cook for an additional 7-9 minutes or until the temperature of the turkey has reached 165°F.
Step 7Remove and set aside to rest while you build the burger. Mix together the sriracha mayo sauce and layer 1 tablespoon onto each bun.
Step 8Top with bacon onion jam, microgreens, and the cooked turkey burger. Enjoy!
