Kel’s Best Bleu Cheese Stuffed Turkey Burgers

Bleu cheese oozing from turkey burger

I recently bought some ground turkey breast that was on sale and decided to make some burgers with part of it. I wanted something with a twist, so I stuffed the burgers with creamy and tangy bleu cheese. Great call! These burgers are moist and juicy even though the turkey is so lean – just look at that melted bleu cheese oozing out in the picture above. They have a wonderful flavor, plus they are so easy to make!

Ingredients (makes 2 burgers)
