Apricot Glazed Turkey Burger with Goat Cheese

So, I love turkey and Goat cheese so these sounded perfect for me to make. I just recently within the last 2 years tried goat cheese and fell in love with it's creamy, almost sweet with a little tangy taste. I love to use it in my salads or on crackers or anywhere else for that matter. Today was a great spring day so using the grill for supper was the only option. Now you can use whatever spices you would like in these but, with the amazingly tangy sweet apricot glaze you wont need much.

Apricot Glazed Turkey Burgers with Goat Cheese
Adapted from Iowa Girl Eats

1lb Ground Lean Turkey
Garlic Powder
Onion Powder
Goat Cheese

Apricot Glaze
Apricot Preserves
Soy Sauce
Ground Fresh Ginger

Now unfortunately I do not have any measurements on the ingredients but really you can't go wrong. For the glaze just mix in a small bowl the Apricot Preserves, Soy Sauce, and Freshly ground Ginger. You can play around with it and make it to your desired taste. I really like ginger so I put a little extra in my glaze.
 Mix 1lb of Ground Lean Turkey
with a few dashes of Garlic and Onion Powder. I also threw in a little glaze
Weigh out 4oz of Turkey to make 4-4oz patties, make a well in the middle to place goat cheese.  I used about 1 1/2 tsp but will use more next time.
Shape into patties and brush the glaze on each patty before placing on the grill
Place the Patties on a Medium to High Heat
Grill and cook about 4-6 minutes on Each side.
Be sure to keep glazing the burgers as they cook and when you flip them.
Take Off the Grill and Enjoy your Moist turkey burger oozing with creamy Goat cheese and a Sweet and Tangy Apricot glaze.
These were sooooo tasty I may have eaten 2 of them myself? oops
 I will definitely be making these again!
I served it with some grilled vegetables also brushed with the apricot glaze.
Even with eating 2 of these tasty babies It was a lot healthier than a regular burger.

  2. Thanks they were very delectable!! I had 2 patties left over so my husband and I had them for supper tonight Delicious!
