Stuffed Turkey Burgers!

So, forgot to mention earlier... Ground turkey is another one we have been using a lot. We sub it for beef... but sometimes ya do gotta have beef! :) Well I was searching online for, again, healthy turkey burgers... and I found this great one on, again,! Recipe by the Neelys!

Prep time: 15 min
Cooking time: 15 min
Level: EASY!!
Serving: 4

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped (or less if you have a husband who hates it)
1/2 vidalia onion, finely chopped
1 1/2 lbs lean ground turkey
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp soy sauce
a little salt a little peppa
8 slices pepper jack cheese( we used mozerella)
1 beefsteak tomato, sliced into 3/4 in thick rounds
Olive oil
4 large onion buns or rolls (we used whole wheat hamburger buns)

preheat grill to medium-high heat.
Put garlic, onion, mustard, turkey, salt and pepper, and soy sauce in a large mixing bowl. Mix with a wooden spoon(or whatever). Divide the turkey into 8 equal-sized balls and flatten them into patties. Lay two slices of cheese on 4 of the patties and cover with another patty. Seal the edges so that the cheese doesn't melt out.
press down into the center of each patty which will keep the burger from puffing up.
Season tomatoes with salt and pepper and brush with olive oil. grill for 2 min per side. Toast the buns as well.
The burgers need to be cooked about 5 or 6 minutes per side! and done! Put the burger together how you like it!

They suggested making a Spicy Mayo Sauce, but we opted out of that... here is the recipe:
1/2 C mayo (eww gross)
2 Tbsp hot chili sauce (Sriracha)
1/2 lime, juiced
mix well.

Jordan and I LOVE this recipe!
