Turkey bacon and cheese stuffed turkey burgers

I apologize for all of the bacon going on here lately! I just can't control myself! Hey, at least it's uncured organic turkey bacon. That's not so bad right? Right!

My husband was off golfing again so I thought this would be a good choice for me and the kiddos.

Just look at all of that gooey goodness inside!

This recipe is really simple and great for a weeknight dinner. Here is what you'll need for 4 stuffed burgers:

1 1/2 lbs ground turkey
3 pieces of turkey bacon, diced
1 clove minced garlic
1-2 tsp oil
1/4 -1/3 cup jack and cheddar cheese, diced
salt and pepper to taste
ranch dressing (I'm totally hooked on the Trader Joes ranch right now!)
lettuce
tomato slices
sourdough bread, sliced and toasted

Pour oil into a large pan and add garlic and bacon. Cook, stirring frequently until bacon is crisp. Remove from pan and set aside. divide ground turkey into 8 equal balls. Form 4 of the balls into oblong patties.

Top each patty with cheese and bacon like so. Make 4 more patties and place on top of each of the first patties. Pinch edges to seal.

Oh, you can be sure I'd gladly dig my teeth into one of these if I had it at hand.
I'm not sure there's turkey bacon here.

Bacon is good!!!! I love my bacon. It's a great ingredient in cooking. Turkey bacon ain't bad either. Bacon in a burger = Yum!!

I just realized that every thing I said has the word bacon. Does that mean I like it a little too much?

Bacon is my crack, so you will get no protest from me! These look delicious, and I usually think turkey burgers are boring...these might change my mind :)

I love stuffed turkey burgers! I've made them stuffed with feta and with blue cheese before...so good. You really can never go wrong with bacon and especially considering the fact that you're using turkey bacon - there is NOTHING to feel bad about. Delicious!

Would you please remind me to visit you AFTER I eat lunch??? Those burgers look so good (great camera work, by the way). Even my kids would eat those but you know what? I've never cooked with ground turkey. Yes, it's true. You may have just convinced me though. I need to go eat now ~ ♥

That first picture was absolutely drool-inducing! Putting the bacon pieces inside the burger is a great idea... great way to ensure bacon in every bite!

I've never had any desire to have a turkey burger, but you make it look good!

Zupan's Markets said...

Nobody should ever fault you for liking a little--or a lot!--of turkey bacon. We personally say: bring on the bacon! Especially if it keeps coming in recipes as tasty as this one. Sounds so simple + comforting with the crisp evenings we've been having.
