green olive turkey burgers stuffed with goat cheese *update below*
green olive burges filled with creamy oozing goat cheese...does anything get better? littlefoodie doesn't think so...just look at that face!
over here at the littlefoodie household we've recently come into a whole stampede of Silver Goat brand goat cheese...logs and pyramids and crumbles. its also no secret around here for the love we hold with our goat cheese.
the salty goodness of manzanilla green olives and goat cheese seems like a pretty good pair. fill it all up and into a juicy grilled burger and you have heaven!
1.5 lbs ground turkey (or beef should ou prefer)
1 small yellow onion, diced small
3 ginormous garlic cloves, minced
handful of chopped parsely
1 cup of green olives, chopped small and roughly
black pepper and a pinch of sea salt
panko breadcrumbs for binding
a log or 2 of goat cheese
combine meat, onions, garlic, parsely, olives, s&p and panko. mix with your hands and add some more panko if needed. also, if it needs a little eaxtr binding and moisture add an egg.
grab a palmful of meat and make a little well in the palm of your hand. add as much goat cheese as you'd like to the center. scoop up some more meat and add it to form a burger; covering the goat cheese. repeat.
at this point i'll throw them in a pan and cover them up and pop in the fridge until dinner time. throw them on the grill still a little frozen. turkey meat is lean and can fall apart pretty easily and this way, frozen, they'll hold together a bit more.
when its chow time throw them on the grill a few minutes on each side. or in a broiler for about 12 minutes or so.
we'll be enjoying them with some steamed broccoli and shoe string potatoes. updated, cooked and juicy pics later!
*****i left the camera on and battery is dead but please for those few posters make these. omg, yum! heavenly, divine, mouth drooling good.
and do the freezing thing cause these suckers came out intact and juicy in the middle!*****
