Inside-Out Turkey Burgers

Turkey burger has a tendency to dry out when being grilled and so I have come up with a solution to help keep some of that moisture from dripping out through the cooking process.  Putting cheese on the INSIDE of the burger makes for a very delicious hamburger.  Top this scrumptious burger with grilled onions and portobello's  and enjoy this little piece of gourmet heaven.


1 cup mozzarella cheese
2 lbs jenny-o turkey burger
1 tsp thyme
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 tbsp  garlic powder
1 tsp season salt
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp parsley flakes

In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey with seasonings and olive oil.  Mix until it is well incorporated.  Form into 5 patties and place on plate.  Pat down the middle of the burger leaving a little well in the center.  Place 2 tbsp mozzarella cheese on each patty in the well. Form 5 more patties and place on top of each of the other 5 patties, making sure to seal all of the edges so no melted cheese can escape while cooking.  Grill or broil until cooked thoroughly.

Topping:
1 large onion sliced thin
1 large portobello mushroom sliced thin
4 cloves garlic, smashed and chopped finely.
2 tbsp olive oil.
1/4 tsp salt
fresh ground black pepper.

In an oven safe pan, put all the ingredients. Toss  them all together then bake or grill until onions caramelized slightly.  Approximately 15 minutes in an oven at 400*  30 minutes in a medium heated grill.
