Turkey burgers with goat cheese

July 7, 2010

Another amazing Cooking Light recipe, brought to us by our dear chef Big Hol. The goat cheese melts into a creamy pile of goodness, upon which a fresh pepper relish sits waiting to refresh your palate.

Sometimes turkey burgers are totally blech to me, but this is a delightful way to make it better.

Turkey Burgers with Goat Cheese

  • 3 pounds turkey
  • 3 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • Cooking spray
  • hamburger buns
  • 4 ounces goat cheese, cut into 8 slices

Prepare grill, combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Divide turkey mixture into 8 portions and form into patties; grill on rack coated with cooking spray. Place buns cut side down to toast, cook 1 minute or until lightly toasted. Top each patty with 1 slice of goat cheese and cover with relish and top of buns.

Grilled Pepper Relish

  • 4 bell peppers in lotsa colors
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 2 tbsp chopped pitted kalamata olives
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 1/2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

Prepare grill, place bell pappers whole on grill rack. Grill, without lid, for 5 to 7 minutes turning frequently, until peppers blister. Place peppers in a zip-lock big bag and seal, let stand for 15 minutes. Peel peppers, remove seeds and discard. Cut them into 1/2-inch pieces.

Combine bell peppers and remaining ingredients in a medium bowl. Makes 8 yummy burgers.
