Goat Gouda-Filled Turkey Burgers


  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 6 oz goat white gouda, cut into cubes
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt

Avocado Mash:

  • 2 avocados, halved & pitted
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt


  • Preheat the grill or a grill pan to medium-high heat.
  • Add the ground turkey to a large bowl with the diced gouda, parsley and spices.
  • Using your hands, combine the mixture until the cheese is evenly dispersed. Don't over-mix.
  • Form turkey into 4 equally sized burger patties.
  • Clean grill with half an onion and brush olive oil on grates. Grill the burgers for 8-12 minutes, flipping halfway through. The burgers should have beautiful grill marks & tons of melty cheese oozing out!
