As someone who admittedly doesn't love turkey, I can't say enough good things about these turkey burgers. They are made by adding your favorite salsa to lean ground turkey meat and then stuffing everything with mozzarella cheese. It's a dreamy combination and one that I promise you will make all summer long. Plus it is easy to mix up the flavors by reaching for a different salsa and cheese combination. I have some ideas for you below.
But before we get into all the fun ways to make these salsa and cheese turkey burgers, let's talk about turkey for a minute. I am one of those people who pass on turkey at Thanksgiving. It's just not my thing. However ever since it became a zero points food, I have been trying to utilize it more. It's a strategy I use to help me balance out the day and save some points for treats at the end of the day. Whether you follow WW or not, it is a healthy and lean protein that is great to add to the rotation.
So for me, the trick to enjoying turkey is to add tons of flavor to it and to make sure it stays nice and moist. This can be challenging with extra lean ground turkey since it dries out quickly. That's where the salsa comes in. It's the best trick for making a moist and flavor packed burger with a lean protein like turkey or ground chicken. The salsa not only adds tons of flavor, it also adds moisture, almost guaranteeing we won't end up with a dry burger. And then to make things even better, why not stuff the cheese inside.
You can make a big batch of these burgers and then freeze them for a quick and easy meal. The easiest way to freeze them is to form them into patties when they are raw. Then place them on a baking sheet or plate and let them freeze in the open fridge for 30 minutes. Then remove them and wrap in plastic wrap and return to the freezer. Then you can pull out as many burgers as you need in the future for a quick and easy meal.
Absolutely! These burgers can be made with any ground beef, chicken, turkey, or pork. They are really good with ground turkey sausage if you want to try something new and different. For the healthiest option, always look for the leanest option. Remember the salsa will help to keep it moist so you don't have to worry as much about the meat getting dry. You can also use ground beef with a higher fat content, it just will be higher in calories and fat.
