Oh yeah, doesn’t that look good? You better say yes. Because that is the answer. Yes, YES, Victoria, it looks so yummy with all the deliciousness bursting out of the side of that burger… just can’t contain itself.
Sometimes I’m kinda genius. I wouldn’t necessarily say these are genius, but they come pretty close. My next post is actually genius. You’ll see. Just wait.
Okay so on to the actual recipe…
1 lbs. ground turkey (or whatever meat you want to use will work)
1 tbs. paprika
1 tsp. garlic salt
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. red pepper flakes
1 small yellow onion, chopped (like strips but small ones)
~1 cup mushrooms chopped
2 roasted red peppers
1 tbs. balsamic vinegar
1 tbs. apple cider vinegar
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Heat up oil in a skillet. Chop up your onions and add to the oil to start cookin’. Chop up your roasted red peppers and mushrooms then add to the skillet, too. Add your vinegars and let everything cook down until onions are translucent. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
While your veggies were cooking you should have been mixing your burger meat with all those spices I mentioned and forming 4 balls of equal size (unless you want unequally sized burgers… you know, so you can give that one family member who isn’t your favorite the small one. Haha, they lose out since YOU cooked dinner!)
Take one ball and flatten it out pretty flat (not super thin so it’s tearing, we’ll get there). Take a BIG scoop of your “stuffing” and plop it in the middle of your flat meat thing…….. Okay, anyway, yeah do that then fold up the edges (circles don’t have edges, I know) to meet in the middle on top of the stuffing blob. Take the ball in your hand to kinda close everything up so basically you have this ball of meat with good stuff inside of it. This gets messy and sometimes the meat tears, just do your best!
Place the ball on a baking sheet and flatten a bit so it looks more like a burger. Repeat with the rest of your meat balls (haha). Bake in oven for 10-15 minutes, or until meat is done (DON’T overcook… will be dry and gross).
Take out and stuff your face with these stuffed burgers! Oh, I served some garlic sauted kale with them- excellent choice on my part. And/or sweet potato fries:).
cutting that bad boy open…. good stuff!
look at all that yumminess pouring out!
