Stuffed Turkey Burgers

I’m not excited about the pictures I took of these burgers. These little guys were just not very photogenic. I guess that happens sometimes. But, good pictures or not, these burgers were awesome.Stuffed Turkey Burgers were this week’s pick for Craving Ellie in My Belly. Thank you to Peggy at Pantry Revisited for choosing this recipe, my husband raved about them!

I love the method used in this recipe, you make two smaller patties first, put the “stuffing” in the center of one of them, then top it with the other patty and seal the edges. It’s honestly so easy and you can really turn these babies into any kind of burger you want! Ellie’s recipe calls for stuffing with roasted red peppers. Being the unorganized cook that I proudly am, I had used up all of my roasted red peppers for other meals early in the week, leaving none for this recipe. Oh well…time to improvise. I had some sun dried tomatoes and fresh spinach in the fridge so that’s what I went with, along with the shredded mozzarella. As I was reaching for the salt and pepper, I picked up Greek seasoning instead. And a new recipe was born.

To keep things really healthy, I served the burgers on Arnold’s Whole Wheat Sandwich Thins, my new favorite sandwich bread. Since all the toppings were stuffed inside, all I needed was a little ketchup and I was happy!

So sure…I might have over grilled the burgers a bit, I get paranoid with ground turkey…but I promise you…they were good! Enjoy!

Stuffed Turkey Burgers


  • 1 1/4 pounds lean ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup chopped sun dried tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh spinach
  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • Greek seasoning


  1. Divide turkey into 4 equal sized rounds. Make 2 equal sized patties out of each round so you have 8 patties total. Season both patties with Greek seasoning. Sprinkle 4 of the patties with sun dried tomatoes, spinach and cheese, top with remaining patties, working the turkey around the edges to seal burgers closed. Grill or broil until cooked through, about 5 minutes per side.
  2. Edited: I wanted to mention a trick I learned years ago...when dealing with turkey burgers, its good to refrigerate the patties for about an hour before grilling, it helps keep them from falling apart when handling them on the grill.

  1. That must have been a big bite from Larry! That stuffing in the middle looks so good. What a healthy burger.

  2. That last picture is awesome! They look super! I bet the sun dried tomatoes were the real stars of the show (love them!!) Hope you're enjoying the week

  3. What an awesome alternative to your typical greasy burger 🙂

  4. Really…how do you find the time? You are one to emulate; you amaze me more and more every day.

  5. Love that you stuffed them!

  6. Wow. I never would have thought to stuff them by making two halves and then putting them together. I think I would have tried to form the meat around the filling and made a big mess. Thanks for the step-by-step pictures. Love your filling choice too!

  7. Looks wonderful! This recipe is really versatile and there are so many options waiting to be tried. Spinach was a great addition!

  8. Whatever, those look awesome! Stuffed burgers are the bomb.

  9. Well now that I am on aturkey burger trip I'll have to give these a try!!

  10. I like the picture of the burger. Sometimes with turkey it's kind of a gray color, yours look great!

  11. I have to take exception with some of what you said. That last photo is a beauty. The recipe sounds terrific. I love stuffed anything, so these burgers have my name written all over them.

  12. What a great idea. My husband has given up hamburgers, but these healthy turkey burgers will win him over. And I love the Arnold sandwich thins! We use them all the time.

  13. Aggie, I just made these also, using chicken and no cheese and they were still great.

    The filling in yours looks great.

  14. These look great! I love the picture showing how it looks inside once it's done. Mmm!

  15. Those look like some tasty burgers! I like using turkey for burgers better than ground beef, how about you?

  16. Oh, those look like truly awesome burgers! I love that you make 2 patties, then put them back together after adding the filling to the top of one of them. I will have to try this!

  17. Whoa those look delicious! I overcooked mine a bit too – same as you I get paranoid about undercooking turkey or chicken. Thanks for cooking with me this week! 🙂

  18. Aggie- I love what you did to these burgers! I think I would probably love the stuffings you added more than the original.
    I think your pics look great- this was a difficult one for me to get a good pic of though.

  19. The pics look great, especially the profile view of the stuffing. There is a great turkey burger at a restaurant here in Houston that I like to order, but I think I'll need to try them at home now! Cheers!

  20. Great additions. I bet they tasted wonderful.

  21. I love stuffed burgers and these look super yummy!

  22. awesome job. I am all over those sandwich thins, I will be going to the gro sto to pick some up on my lunch break!

    You got so much stuff into your burgers, I am impressed.

    Your chilling tip is so true, and we chill our regular beef burgers as well before we grill them.


  23. I'm pretty paranoid with ground turkey, too. It's just so hard to tell if it's cooked through or not. The burgers look delicious!

  24. I liked the method of those two little patties sealed together also. Wish I had thought to take a photo of the inside of the burger as well…yours looks great. All your photos are great! Greek stuffed burger…so want to go there. Thanks for all the ideas.

  25. YOu're a cooking genius! Love it, and it definitely seems easier than stuffing chicken (which I also learned from you!) 🙂

  26. Oh wow!
    Love these.
    I also adore those sandwich thins!!

  27. Um.. I think the last picture is fantastic!! I love how you can see all the yummy bits in the middle!


  28. I think the pictures look great! Stuffed burgers are always a winner!

  29. I think the pictures look really great and the burgers look VERY TASTY…love the stuffing.

  30. I love that last picture where you can see all the yummy stuffing ingredients oozing out! They look delicious!

  31. If there is turkey and Greek in the name you know I will be there.

  32. The inside of the burger looks awesome. I don't like that descriptive but, in this case, it fits. It is a WOW!

  33. Those stuffed burgers look so good!

  34. Delicious changes are sometimes born of improvisation, and you certainly proved that with these beauties!

  35. Those pics look pretty delicious to me! Love how you stuffed them!

  36. Hi Aggie

    Did you use fresh raw spinach or steamed cooked spinach.
