  • 1 lb 85/15 ground turkey
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 c shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper


Add ground turkey to a bowl. Add olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder and onion powder to the turkey. Mix well. Divide turkey mixture into six equal portions.

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Flatten three of the portions into 1/4-inch thick burger patties. Top each with about 3 tablespoons of shredded cheddar. Leave a 1/2-inch rim around the edge to ensure they don’t leak. Using your hands, flatten one of the remaining portions of turkey into a patty and top one of the cheddar-topped patties. Seal the edges with your fingers and gently flatten. Repeat with the remaining burgers.

Leave the three stuffed burger patties on the parchment-lined baking sheet. Place in the freezer for 1 hour. This will ensure the burgers don’t fall apart when grilling.

After an hour, preheat your grill over medium-high heat, 400°F. Grill burgers for 5 to 6 minutes per side until the turkey reaches an internal temperature of 165°F. Serve Cheddar Stuffed Turkey Burgers on a bun with your favorite toppings.
