Love that you stuffed some jalapenos in the burger too! May have to try that! I'm really looking forward to this recipe!
I made these last night and they were really good!I used 93% lean ground turkey because I didn't want these to be dry (I use ground turkey breast a lot in my cooking).I divided my meat into more sections than Ellie suggested and made some smaller burgers for my kids. I even forgot to season them with salt and pepper, but no one noticed. I was surprised at how good these were.The only problem was trying to get the meat to hold all the filling, but I made it work and ended up with very tall, ball-like burgers.Hard for me to photograph too, but oh well.
How do you join this little club. Sounds like a lot of fun - and I already have the book :)
Just had to pop in and say that jalapenos in the burger sound marvelous! Next time...
I made these last week, and they were delicious. I've never made stuffed burgers before so I was worried about them falling apart, but they held up well for me. I will definitely use this idea with other ingredients - jalapenos sound good!
Haven't been able to track down either ground chicken or ground turkey, will probably try these with beef.....
Anyone have suggestions for a subtitute for the cheese? I can't use that. I was thinking a little mayo mixed with the roasted pepper but it just doesn't have the same flair or interest.
I made these tonight, they were pretty good. I think 2 tablespoons for each patty just wasn't enough. Or maybe my 2 tablespoons never ended up all actually inside the patty! These were really messy...
I made these last night and thought they were great. I added a little Whorcesterchire sauce, a shallot, a dash of garlic powder and a dash of red pepper flakes, as well as the called for salt and pepper to the meat to combat ground turkey's typical blandness. The cheese and roasted red peppers added even more flavor and kept the burgers very tender and moist.
I'm sad to say I made a poor choice that resulted in a not-so-positive experience for me with this one. I bought a tad less than the amount of turkey called for, and decided to make 2 burgers instead of 4. As a result, they were on the big side. By the time they started almost burning, I still wasn't 100% convinced that they were totally cooked through, even though my husband was. Hmm. He really enjoyed them (and convinced me not to title my post 'turkey failburgers'), but I only picked at mine, which was a bummer. A good idea in theory!
I've made these in the past and I thought the idea was fun but the spices were a little off. I like the idea of adding some jalapenos to them :)
I thought these were great, and my husband enjoyed them too. I didn't find them messy, though, and I also used slightly less meat than what the recipe called for (1 lb. instead of 1 1/4). I think I have found a good trick to sealing stuffed burgers, which I will share in my post... :)
i thought these were fantastic! i added cracked red pepper flakes to the filling in case they weren't flavorful enough, but i honestly don't think it was necessary.
