Goat Cheese Stuffed Turkey Burgers

It may be fall but there are still some barbecue days left. And nothing prolongs the joys of summer more than burgers! These are very simple but super tasty. And if you make 8 small patties and then assemble them by putting the cheese in the middle of a bottom patty, leaving space around the edge then put the top patty on and pinch the edges. It works really well! See how well the cheese stayed inside the burger.

Goat Cheese Stuffed Turkey Burgers - Serves 4


  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 2 tsp each finely chopped fresh rosemary and thyme
  • salt and pepper, sprinkle some all over the mix based on your preference
  • 1 tbsp squeeze of fresh lemon
  • 4 1/2 slices of goat cheese, a small log will be more than enough


  1. Mix turkey, rosemary, thyme, salt, pepper and lemon.
  2. Form into 8 thin patties
  3. Lay out 4 patties, place goat cheese slice on each, top with remaining patties and pinch sides to close in cheese
  4. Barbecue until cooked through, it's turkey so cook it completely, I did them about 8 - 10 minutes per side.

I served these with some whole wheat buns toasted, a slice of tomato and a slather of mayo. Very simple, super delicious!
