  • The burger
  • 1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
  • 1 jalapeno pepper seeded and chopped
  • ¼ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • The filing:
  • 4 ounce low fat cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan
  • 2 tablespoons plain greek yogurt
  • ½ teaspoon granulated garlic
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ cup shredded sharp cheddar
  • 1 jalapeno seeded and chopped
  • 2 slices cooked bacon crumbled


  • In a large bowl combine the panko and milk until it forms a paste, add more milk if needed.
  • Add to the paste the ground turkey, onion powder, granulated garlic, salt, pepper, worcestershire sauce, jalapeño, and shredded cheese. Mix together until all the ingredients are combined.
  • Divide the turkey mixture into four sections. Take each section and form a patty. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl combine the cream cheese, greek yogurt, grated parmesan cheese, granulated garlic, onion powder, shredded cheese, jalapeño, and bacon. Mix until all the ingredients are combined.
  • Take each turkey patty, divide into twos, and flatten out using your hands. Put 2-3 tablespoons of cheese filling into the center of one half and then place the other half on top and seal the edges. Do the same thing with the other patties.
  • Place burgers onto a grill heated to medium high and cook for 7-8 minutes on each side or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
  • Remove the burgers from the grill and let sit for a couple minutes. The filling will be hot so be careful biting into it. You could always eat it with a fork.
