I just can’t stop coming up with new ideas for stuffed burgers! I honestly can’t remember the last time I made a regular burger. The thing is, once you have had a delicious burger stuffed with cheese or bacon or veggies, you just keep thinking of new possibilities.
This Italian Stuffed Turkey Burger is filled with fresh ingredients: spinach, basil leaves, tomato, and mozzarella. Don’t leave out the fresh basil leaves, they really make the burger by adding a great flavor.
I typically make burgers with ground beef, but for this burger I wanted to go a little healthier and try a turkey burger. While it definitely doesn’t taste the same, I still enjoy turkey burgers occasionally. I also found that they are way easier to work with when making stuffed burgers, they are easier to shape and much easier to seal shut than ground beef.
We are having unusually nice weather for Florida at this time of the year. The nights are still nice with a cool breeze and not a lot of humidity. I am definitely trying to make the most of it! This burger was the perfect meal to grill and enjoy out on the deck.
