Stuffed Turkey Burgers

These were good, and a fun change to regular burgers, but could have used a little more zip. Maybe pepperjack instead of mozzarella cheese next time?

1 1/4# ground turkey
1/2 cup roasted red peppers **Directions on how to do your own at the bottom
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
salt and pepper to taste
  1. Divide turkey into 4 sections. Make two equal patties out of each section.
  2. Sprinkle one patty with 1/4 of the peppers and 1/4 of the cheese and top with another patty. Squish the edges to seal. (I did this poorly and mine leaked.) Repeat for all 4 burgers.
  3. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Grill or broil. (I broiled, took about 5 minutes per side. Flipping was tricky, be sure to grease whatever you cook it on.)
How to make your own roasted red peppers: (Thanks Marla!)
Cover a cookie sheet with foil. Cook peppers at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, turn and cook another 20 or so, until black edged and look done. Put in a bowl and cover with saran wrap. After they cool down a bit it is easy to peel the skins off and take out the seeds.
