Monterey Jack Turkey Burgers

These burgers are delicious (and much healthier than regular burgers).  What a perfect way to enjoy a BBQ with friends and family.

MONTEREY JACK TURKEY BURGERS

3/4 pound ground skinless turkey breast
2 shallots, finely chopped
1 Tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 Tbsp ketchup
1 tsp minced fresh garlic
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
1/3 c. shredded Monterey Jack cheese
4 strips turkey bacon
4 hamburger buns, split and toasted
1 tomato, cut into 4 slices

1. In a large bowl, combine the turkey, shallots, soy sauce, ketchup, garlic, and pepper.  Blend in the cheese, then form into 4 burgers.

2. Heat an indoor ridged grill sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.  Cook the burgers until cooked through (about 6 to 8 minutes on each side).  When you turn the burgers, add the bacon to the grill; cook until crisp (about 3 to 4 minutes on each side).  Serve the burgers in the buns, with the bacon and tomato slices.
