Blue Cheese Turkey burgers with Roasted Red Potatoes

This  is an easy and healthy alternative to actual burgers, using ground turkey meat! I like to add fresh jalapeno and white american cheese to these, when we aren’t using blue cheese. However, since we’re using blue cheese this weekend for entertaining – we’re going to finish that up this week!

To make 4 burgers you’ll need:

  • 1 lb ground turkey 99% fat free
  • 2 tablespoons bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • dash of garlic powder

For the potatoes:

  • 2 medium red potatoes per person
  • cooking spray
  • cayenne pepper
  • sea salt

Preheat your oven to 400.

Clean your potatoes and chop into even chunks. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. {It’s nice if you have the Olive Oil flavored spray at this point. If not, the normal stuff will work.} In a single layer spread your potatoes out, cover with the cooking spray and immediately sprinkle cayenne pepper and sea salt over the potatoes. I usually only cover one side. {Couple of notes: you can use about 1 tablespoon of oil olive instead of cooking spray. And if you don’t like the heat of cayenne pepper, you can use Cajun seasoning or even just regular pepper.} Get these into the oven they’ll take about 30 minutes to get crispy, be sure to flip with a spatula at half way through.

Combine the burger ingredients in a large bowl, mushing with your hands until everything is evenly incorporated. Separate the meat into eight sections and create thin patties. Put four patties on a plate and fill/top each with a spoonful of blue cheese. Take the remaining four patties and cover each blue cheese patty. Gently, work the two patties together into one large stuffed burger.

Grill the burgers until done 10-12 minutes, every grill is different, cook until no pink remains. Serve with lettuce, tomato, mustard or any other toppings you’d like!
