cheesy stuffed turkey burgers

last night i had a dream about taylor swift and miley cyrus.
why? i have no idea.
the worst part is that i was actually miley in the dream.
i'm not even kidding you right now.
where does my brain even come up with this stuff?
feel free to start psychoanalyzing me. GO!

in other news... it's summer :)
and you best be making some of these cheesy stuffed
turkey burgers from my good friend gwen. yum!

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup peeled and finely minced yellow onion
1 tablespoon very finely chopped fresh rosemary
1 lb ground turkey
1/2 tsp coarse salt
1/4 fresh ground ground black pepper
1/2 cup coarsely grated cheese of your choice
4 sprouted grain or whole wheat burger buns

1. heat the olive oil in a small skillet over low heat.
add the onion and rosemary and cook for about 10 minutes, or until quiet soft and sweet.

2. let the onion mixture cool a bit and then put in a
large mixing bowl with the turkey, salt, and pepper.
mash the ingredients together with a wooden spoon or with your hands.

3. divide the mixture into quarters.
divide each quarter in half, and form into 2 patties.
place 2 tablespoons of cheese onto one pattie and
sandwich with the other half, pinching the edges to close the gap.
repeat this process with the remaining turkey and cheese.

4. preheat your grill or broiler to high.
cook the burgers for 5 minutes on the first side,
flip and cook for 4 more minutes, or until the burgers are browned and firm.
serve them on grilled buns with all of your favorite fixings.
