Roasted Red Pepper and Mozzarella Stuffed Turkey Burgers

As you can tell, there is no photo for this recipe, unfortunately. I made these burgers yesterday as an easy dinner, and before I knew it, they were all gobbled up with no time for a photo! But let me tell you, this recipe from Ellie Krieger is a keeper...I just HAD to post about them, even sans photo! Since they're made with ground turkey, they're even good for you, and since they're so delicious, moist, and succulent, you wouldn't even know. Even if you don't like peppers (I'm not a huge fan), I am sure you'll still love these. I enjoyed mine with just a few spinach leaves and a little ketchup, but any way you dress them up, these burgers are simply delicious! They make a perfect lunch. I think I may cook up another batch to keep in the fridge for lunches this week. Yum!!

Roasted Red Pepper and Mozzarella Stuffed Turkey Burgers
Recipe Courtesy Ellie Krieger, www.foodnetwork.com

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/4 lb. lean ground turkey (I only had a 1lb package, which worked fine. I used a little less filling and my burgers were a little smaller)
  • 1/2 cup roasted red peppers, chopped
  • 1/2 cup grated part skim mozzarella cheese
  • salt and pepper, to taste
Directions:

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Seperate the ground turkey into four equal portions. Then, half each of the four portions, making eight patties.
2. Top four of the patties with some of the roasted red pepper and mozzarella.
3. Place the empty patties on top of the ones stuffed with the pepper and cheese; make sure to seal the edges. Season with salt and pepper.
4. Grill (or brown in a pan) for 5 minutes per side or until done. If needed, finish in the oven for 5 minutes. The burgers may appear a little pink around the edges... this may be due to the roasted red pepper.
5. Serve on buns with the toppings of your choice.
