Hello friends! We are hitting the middle of summer, so I hope your cookouts are roaring! With only a few weeks left in July, I would like to give you a quick main course idea, healthily upgraded of course.

This juicy stuffed burger is an upbeat and easy twist to the classic cookout meal. Complete with a bacon and cheese stuffing, this glazed burger is sure to keep you guests coming back for seconds.

Ingredients

3 tablespoons of dark brown sugar
1½ teaspoons of paprika
½ teaspoon of garlic powder
½ teaspoon of ground cumin
¼ teaspoon of chipotle powder (chili powder works too!)
¼ teaspoon of salt
¼ teaspoon of ground black pepper
1 pound of ground turkey
½ cup of low-fat shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
6 slices of cooked, crumbled turkey bacon
4 whole-grain rolls

Directions

  1. Heat grill to a medium temperature. Mix the sugar, spices, salt and pepper in a small bowl and set to the side. Mold the ground turkey into 8 round patties. Combine the cheese and crumbled turkey bacon together in another bowl, and then place an equal amount of the mixture on only  4 of the patties.
  2. Place the remaining 4 patties over the cheese and turkey bacon mixture. Press the edges of the burger to seal. Generously pat and cover each burger with the sugar and spice mixture. Grill until it is as done as you’d like! Enjoy!
