Stuffed Turkey Burgers

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by riffraff

This is my attempt at low carb. I add more than 1 pepper because I like it spicey. You can replace the pepper with 2 to 3 tablespoons of chopped canned chilies or chopped canned chipotles en adobo or omit altogether. Top with salsa if desired.

I was looking for another good recipe with turkey, and found this, i made some changes due to my tastes, so I sauteed chopped onions, yellow peppers and diced green chili's mixed into the turkey then split as it said into 8 patties, layered swiss cheese on 4 and covered wtih the remaining patties. AND... to quote Guy, "this was off the hook!' cooked until done, lettuce and tomatoe on buns served with homemade french fries and coleslaw. THANKS! A keeper
