Gweyneth's Gruyere Stuffed Turkey Burgers

The past Sunday, in the Parade, magazine, Gweyneth Paltrow wrote an article, in which she reminisced about her father and the visceral way he cooked.  She included a recipe for a delicious stuffed turkey burger.  Gweyneth doesn't eat red meat, but if you do, I am sure it would taste just as delicious if you subsituted beef for turkey.

Gruyere Stuffed Turkey Burgers
1 Tbsp EVOO
1/2 cup minced yellow onion
1 Tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
1 lb ground turkey
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup grated Gruyere (or your favorite sharp, hard cheese)
4 whole grain buns

  1. Heat oil in a small skillet over low heat.  Add onion and rosemary; cook until soft and sweet, about 10 minutes.  Let cool and add turkey, salt and pepper.
  2. Divide mixture into quarters.  Cut each quarter in half and form 2 patties.  Place two Tbsp cheese on one patty.  Place the other patty on top, pinching edges together.  Repeat with remaining patties.
  3. Preheat grill to high. Cook burgers 5 minutes on one side; flip, then cook until burgers are browned and firm (5-6 more minutes).
  4. Serve on buns with all the fixings!
Thanks Gweyneth.  Check out more recipes in her newsletter: GOOP.
