Summer is here the days are long and our kids are out for school break. Rather than cooking over a hot stove, we are firing up our grills for family meals and fun get-togethers. While grilling is an ingrained family tradition, there is no need to serve the same old standard grilled burgers. It is time to zing up our BBQ game and wow our family and friends with unique burger creations. This Fourth of July is the perfect time to do so, don’t you think?
Making Unique Burgers
Start thinking out-of-the box when it comes to grilling burgers this summer. A simple beef patty on a bun with traditional condiments may be popular, but it is just the tip of the iceberg of burger options available. It is easy to make veggie burgers from scratch and there are many ready-made options for them available as well. Chicken, turkey, lamb and seafood burgers are also delicious options to the traditional beef patty. Even beef lovers can bring their burgers to a higher level with the use of great sauces and well thought out toppings. Don’t stop with the burger patty and topping though, open your mind to options beyond the bun. All sorts of breads can nestle a juicy grilled burger inside, and some just plain make more sense for certain burger combinations.
Stop & Shop’s Unique Burger Recipes
If all this talk of unique creative burgers has you salivating, but you aren’t up for a whole lot of culinary experimentation, no worries, Stop & Shop has you covered. They have already done the brainstorming and recipe trials for us. The Stop & Shop Savory Recipe Center has a large collection of recipes including burger recipes of all types. All needed ingredients are of course available right at your local Stop & Shop, what could be more convenient and affordable than that? It is where I found the recipe for the Inside-out Turkey Cheeseburgers I am sharing with you today.
Inside-out Turkey Cheeseburgers Recipe
These Inside-out Turkey Cheeseburgers are easy to make and so simple to assemble when serving. The cheese and most of the seasonings are right inside the turkey burger patties.
Simply combine the ingredients for the turkey burger mix, shape and grill, then add lettuce tomato and mayonnaise on your grilled bun before adding your patty. Easy peasy.
My daughter and I enjoyed the burgers. I can’t wait to try some more of the innovative burger recipes from the Stop & Shop Savory Recipe Center this summer.
These Inside out Turkey Cheeseburgers have the cheese inside!
- 4 oz fresh mozzarella
- 1 lb Nature's Promise ground turkey
- 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
- 1/4 cup chopped green onions
- 1 egg
- 4 hamburger buns
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 4 Boston lettuce leaves
- 4 large slices tomatoes
- Dice mozzarella into ½-inch (or slightly smaller) cubes. In a large bowl, combine turkey, cheese, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, green onions and egg. Season with black pepper. Form into 4 burgers.
- Heat grill to medium hot. Grill burgers until cooked through, 8-10 min., flipping once.
- Briefly warm bun halves on grill. Spread the bottom of each bun with 1 tbsp mayonnaise. Top with 1 lettuce leave, 1 large slice tomato, turkey burger and top bun
Make sure to oil either the grill or the burger patties to prevent sticking, especially if you choose the lower fat Nature's Promise Turkey like I use.
