This week I decided to turn to dinner recipes in Gwyneth’s cookbook. She is famous for not eating beef, but her turkey burgers looked absolutely delicious. I made the burger patties during naptime and elected to stuff them with blue cheese, since that is what I had on hand. For dinner we grilled them up in a few minutes, making sure they were cooked through, and served them in whole wheat hamburger buns. I also skipped the mayonnaise Gwyneth used, opting for my favorite spicy ketchup.
Blue Cheese Stuffed Turkey Burgers
adapted from My Father’s Daughter by Gwyneth Paltrow
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 yellow onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon rosemary, finely chopped
1 pound ground turkey
1 pinch kosher salt
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
1. Warm the olive oil in a skillet and cook the onion and rosemary until translucent and fragrant. Set aside.
2. Add the ground turkey, onion, rosemary, and salt to a large bowl and mix everything together. Form the turkey into four evenly-sized burger patties. Place 1 large pinch of blue cheese into each burger and pull the meat over the cheese.
3. Warm a grill to medium heat and grill the burgers until they are cooked through and firm. Serve them on whole wheat buns with any toppings you prefer!
