This burger is made with lean ground turkey and goat cheese. Both have excellent sources of protein. I served it on top of an Ezekiel english muffin but a regular whole wheat hamburger bun would do. English muffins are a fun and healthy way to mix up a boring hamburger, and I personally think they taste even better! BBQ sauce is also a fun sub for ketchup and I am a huge fan of Stubbs. The Sweet Honey Pecan balances with the goat cheese so amazingly. My boyfriend lives in Austin, and I was fortunate enough to actually eat Stubb's BBQ. Let me say its one of the best I've ever tasted. So if you ever make the trip you've got to go! It's got a fun live band and dance floor at night and a great Sunday brunch. Enjoy these goat stuffed turkey burgers and impress your friends with serving these guys stuffed.
- 1 pound lean ground turkey
- 1 egg
- 4 scallions, thinly sliced
- 3 tablespoons of Panko breadcrumbs (healthy breadcrumbs you can find in any grocery store)
- 1 teaspoon BBQ sauce
- 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper, plus more
- salt to taste
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 2 oz goat cheese, divided into 4 sqares
- 4 Ezekiel english muffins
- toppings such as lettuce, tomato, onions
- Gently combine turkey, egg, scallions, breadcrumbs, BBQ sauce, dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, pepper, salt, and garlic in a large bowl. Make sure not to over mix! Meat will be dry and too tough if you work it too much.
- Divide patties into equal size rounds. You should have 8 small patties.
- Sprinkle 4 patties with salt and pepper. Place one ball of goat cheese on top of one patty. Place another patty on top of the cheese and bottom patty. Work around the patty to seal the edges and round into a ball.
- Grill or broil about 6 minutes per side until cooked through.
- Place burger on english muffins and top with BBQ sauce and your favorite toppings!
