Turkey Burgers oozin with CHEESEE

by Chelcie on October 19, 2011

Dinner tonight was a success.

Turkey burgers stuffed with GOAT CHEESE for me, shredded mozzarella for the roommates, with homemade Sweet Potato Fries and roasted parmesan Asparagus. YUM. 

I’ll take you from start to finish..warning this post is long…but its worth it I promise

First up, I preheated the oven to 375 degrees for both the sweet potatoes and asparagus

Then I peeled and sliced the sweet potatoes, and trimmed the asparagus. I put both out on separate baking sheets and tossed both with olive oil, salt, pepper, and THIS

Such a good seasoning blend! It’s a combination of salt, mustard seeds,black peppercorns, coriander, onion, garlic, paprika, and chili pepper. This blend is similar to a poultry seasoning.

Now back to the taters and asparagus!

I topped the asparagus with a generous amount of parmesan cheese. Because that’s what makes these asparagus taste so darn good!!

I popped both in the oven, but took the asparagus out after 20 minutes.. then I cranked the oven up to 450 and left the sweet potatoes in for 20 more minutes (stirring occasionally)

The final products


Now onto the Turkey Burgers!

First I sautéed onion and mushrooms in a pan with some of the Trader Joes everyday seasoning and olive oil

Then in a bowl I combined the ground turkey and sautéed mushrooms and onions

Then get down and dirty (kidding) and mix all together with clean hands. To form the burger patty it is easiest to divide the mixture into 8 little flat disks. Then you take one lay disk on your hand, put cheese on top, and top with another disk to form a full burger patty. Here is a slide show of pictures trying to display this..

goat cheese for me:)

oh hey. Sonny was my photographer during the process haha

I cooked the burgers over medium high heat, apx 5 minutes per side. And I used the same skillet as the mushrooms and onions rather than whipping out the grill pan because I was lazy. But they still turned out delicious so its fine


Yes I realize the burger to goat cheese ratio is 50/50. I like it that way. This dinner was really awesome. I suggest you make these burgers, sweet potatoes, and asparagus now

This post is really long..but here are the full recipe breakdowns below
