Okay, I know what you’re going to say… Turkey burgers are bland, bland, bland, and normally you would be correct; however, in this case we’re going to stuff them with some good cheese, and top them with a special guacamole sauce, and fire-roasted peppers. YUMMY.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make The Ultimate Cheese-Stuffed Turkey Burger

Step-by-Step

  1. PREP/PREPARE
  2. THE GUACAMOLE SAUCE
  3. Gather all your ingredients.
  4. Cut the ripe avocado in half, and remove the seed.
  5. Place 1/2 of the avocado and all the other ingredients into a non-reactive bowl.
  6. Use a fork to mash the avocado into the other ingredients.
  7. Use a pairing knife and cut the other half of the avocado into cubes.
  8. Add them to the bowl, and gently fold into the mixture.
  9. Chef’s Tip: Depending on how juicy your lime is, you may have more juice than you need. What I do is save the limejuice until last, and add a bit at a time until I achieve the consistency I’m looking for.
  10. Cover and place into the refrigerator.
  11. THE BURGERS
  12. Gather your ingredients.
  13. Divide the turkey into thirds.
  14. Chef’s Note: If you want a smaller burger, divide into fourths.
  15. Gently flatten the ground turkey into a thin round… but not too thin.
  16. Sprinkle each side with some salt and pepper.
  17. Chef’s Note: Feta is a very salty tasting cheese, so watch the seasoning.
  18. Add the feta to the center of the patty.
  19. Fold in the sides, and seal the burger.
  20. Chef's Note: The finished patty should be the same diameter as the bagel.
  21. Place a pan over medium heat, and add just a bit of olive oil.
  22. Add the burger.
  23. Allow to cook for 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until they begin to brown.
  24. Meanwhile cut open and toast the bagels.
  25. Add a slice or two of lettuce to the bottom half of the toasted bagels.
  26. Place a turkey patty on top of the lettuce.
  27. Add a generous amount of the special guacamole sauce.
  28. Top with some fire-roasted peppers.
  29. PLATE/PRESENT
  30. Add the top, cut in half, and serve while still nice and hot. Enjoy.
  31. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
