Ground turkey makes a special appearance today, paired with bacon and cheese. My family was sure excited about trying this recipe from Roni at Green Lite Bites. The (very real) bacon bits are mixed right in to the turkey mixture along with rolled oats and shredded zucchini. The zucchini provides moisture, and the oats help to stretch out the meat. And of course, both ingredients add some nutrition. I chopped a small onion into the mixture as well, for a little extra flavor.
But the truly unique part is that half of a Mini Babybel Light cheese wheel is tucked inside the burger. When the burger is grilled, the cheese melts perfectly inside. This was a really fun way to make cheeseburgers, and of course you could use the idea for a homemade veggie burger as well. Thanks to Roni for posting this recipe, it was a crowd pleaser!
