Gluten-Free Stuffed Turkey Burgers

by Laura Hanley on July 12th, 2013


While watching The Chew on ABC one day, Mario Batali’s sons gave me a fantastic idea. They had made “Pocket Burgers,” which is a hamburger with the toppings inside of the burger.

WHY HAVEN’T I EVER THOUGHT TO DO THIS BEFORE?

I made a version of their recipe that is somewhat healthier using ground turkey instead of beef, plus this nifty recipe for Tomato Chutney.

Gluten-Free Stuffed Turkey Burgers:

Gluten-Free Stuffed Turkey Burger

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 1 package of grape tomatoes, halved
  • 2 Tbsp cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • Pinch of allspice
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 4-5 drops of gluten-free hot sauce (optional)
  • Gluten-free bun (I used Kinnikinnick)

 

Instructions:

Halve your grape tomatoes for the chutney. Place into small saucepan with cider vinegar, brown sugar, allspice, cinnamon, salt and pepper.

Tomatoes

Let simmer, stirring occasionally, until the mixture thickens for approximately 8 to 10 minutes.

While tomato chutney is simmering, form patties with your ground turkey. You will need two patties for each burger you will make. I recommend making patties that are about 1/4 inch thick and 4 to 5 inches in diameter.

Turkey Burger Before Stuffing

When tomato chutney is done, place mixture on top of one ground turkey patty then place another patty on top, enclosing the edges. Repeat for the number of burgers you will be making.

Turkey Burger + Tomatoes

Place the turkey burgers on the foil-lined grill.

Once turkey burgers are cooked through, serve on top of a gluten-free bun.

You can personalize this recipe any way you’d like by using different gluten-free ingredients for your stuffing. I highly recommend trying this recipe next time you’re having a burger night. Your taste buds will never be the same!

Which toppings would you choose to stuff your burger with? Let me know in the comments, maybe I’ll try yours next time!
