Cooking For a Crowd- Inside Out Turkey Cheese Burgers!

These are a great healthy option to serve at your next cook out.

Inside-out Turkey Cheese Burgers (Serves 6- enlarge as needed)
2 lbs of ground turkey
1/4 cup of ketchup
1 TBSP Dijon mustard
1 tsp garlic powder
1 oz slice of cheese per pattie

Homemade hamburger buns or other favorite hardy bread
Lettuce leaves
Tomato slices
Any other topping you and yours enjoy!

Mix turkey, ketchup, mustard and garlic powder in a bowl until combined and press into 12 medium, thin patties. Place cheese on six of the patties and then top with remaining patties. Crimp patties shut. (Do this well so no cheese escapes when cooking.) Cook patties with desired method (We grill or pan saute) until cooked thoroughly- about 5 to 7 minutes per side.

This recipe is a family favorite. Everyone likes it! It is quick, easy and healthy. I have my ten year old son mix these up. We finish the meal with a great salad or vege platter and fresh squeezed, homemade lemonade!
