Roni Noone submitted this amazing turkey burger recipe for the Too Good To Be Healthy burger cook-off and boy was it a hit! Not only are the patties packed with flavor, but there’s a hidden surprise of ooey gooey melty cheese in the middle. Who doesn’t love that?

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 4 servings
  • • 8 ounces lean or extra lean ground turkey
  • • 1/3 cup grated zucchini
  • • 1 tablespoon grated onion
  • • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • • 4 tablespoons real bacon bits
  • • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • • 1 egg
  • • ¾ cup old fashioned oats
  • • Pinch Kosher salt
  • • Pinch of ground black pepper
  • • 1½ ounces reduced-fat cheese

Put all the ingredients in a bowl except the cheese and mix well. The mixture will be moist.

Separate the meat mixture into 4 equal parts. Then, take one of the portions and separate into 2 small patties.

Open a round of Mini Babybel Light cheese and cut in half lengthwise to make two circles. Place one of the cheese circles in the center of a small patty. Top with the other patty and form together. Repeat to make remaining 3 burgers.

Heat a skillet or grill and spray with oil spray to prevent sticking. Once heated, cook the burgers for about 6 minutes on the first side and about 4-5 minutes on the flip side.

Serve on any whole grain or sprouted grain English muffin style bun with some baby spinach and a squirt of ketchup.
