There’s nothing like a delicious BBQ’d burger on a summer evening!! Perfect when you make it with tasty jalapeños you grew yourself and topped with fresh lettuce and tomatoes straight from your garden!!
Thanks to Spend with Pennies for the recipe and Trish Guimond for testing and sharing how she uses her Pampered Chef products to make cooking easier!! One of her favourite PC products is the PC Food Chopper #2585 $49. This is used almost everyday in her kitchen, especially used by people who don’t like chopping onions!!
This recipe can be made with either chicken or beef.
- 28 oz lean turkey or beef (not extra lean)
- 2 tablespoons finely minced onion
- salt & pepper to taste
- 4 tablespoons cream cheese
- 2 oz shredded cheddar cheese
- ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 fresh jalapeno pepper diced (seeds removed if you prefer less spice)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Rolls & Toppings as desired
Preheat grill to medium or oven to broil on high.
- In a small bowl combine cream cheese, cheddar cheese, garlic powder and diced jalapeños.
Combine meat, salt & pepper and minced onion. Divide meat into 4 even pieces (7oz each). Take ¼ of the cream cheese mixture and flatten it into a pancake shape. Wrap beef or turkey around the cheese ensuring the cheese mixture is completely covered. Brush each burger with a little bit of olive oil.
Grill burgers over medium heat for 6-7 minutes on each side or until completely cooked. (Turkey should reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees and beef should reach 160°F.)
Place burgers on a foil covered pan approximately 6" from the broiler. Broil 5-6 minutes on each side or until completely cooked. (Turkey should reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees and beef should reach 160°F.)
