Directions

  2. Form seasoned turkey meat into 4 evenly sized burgers. Make an indent in the middle of each burger with your thumb and place ¼ of cheese in indent. Cover cheese with ground turkey meat and reform into a patty, making sure cheese is covered.
  3. Place prepared turkey burgers on a plate and refrigerate for 10 - 12 minutes until firm.
  4. Pour 1 quart water into bottom of broiler pan or until it reaches the marks stamped inside. Place grill rack onto broiler pan.
  5. Plug in cord to electrical outlet and preheat for about 5 minutes.
  6. Place formed burgers, evenly spaced, onto grill rack and cook for 12 - 15 minutes on each side or until internal temperature taken with a probe thermometer reaches 165°F/74°C.
  7. Serve burgers hot with your choice of bun and toppings.

Tips

  • Cook a small "test" burger to check for seasoning before cooking the remainder of the burgers. Add in more salt, pepper, or more Cherrywood Smoked Chipotle seasoning if you like your burgers a little spicier.
  • Substitute lean ground turkey for ground beef.
