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 oven to broil on high
In a small bowl combine cream cheese, cheddar cheese, garlic powder and diced jalapeno.
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.
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 degrees.)
