blue cheese-stuffed turkey burger

I don't know about you, but I am a sucker for blue cheese! When I was little, I remember thinking my mom was definitely going to get sick if she kept eating moldy cheese, but now that I'm older and wiser and better understand the more sophisticated things of the world, I can't get enough of it!!! The night I made these, it was late & it had been a long day so I just made them in a pan on the stove rather than bothering with the grill. We didn't get the whole BBQ experience, but WHO CARES?! The blue cheese was still oozing out of them, and I still used my dad's famous burger technique of splashing just a little bit of Worcestershire sauce on the burgers a few minutes before they were ready. If you like blue cheese, you're going to love this one! It's definitely at the top of my list of "best burgers!"
Blue cheese-stuffed turkey burgers
adapted from Robin Miller's on the Food Network

Ingredients (makes 2 burgers)
1 lb ground turkey
1 tsp poultry seasoning, or seasoning of choice
blue cheese crumbles
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
bbq sauce
2 whole wheat hamburger buns, toasted
In a large bowl, sprinkle seasoning over ground turkey and mix thoroughly.
Separate turkey into 4 balls of equal size & flatten into patties.
In the center of 2 patties, place desired amount of blue cheese crumbles (2-3 Tbsp). Then cover each with one of the remaining patties and press the edges together to seal the cheese in.
In a medium pan, over med-high heat, cook the burgers ~4 or 5 minutes per side, or until cooked through.
With about 3 minutes left to cook, splash 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce on each of the burgers.
Remove from pan & serve on toasted buns. Top with bbq sauce, lettuce, tomato & onion.

I love ground turkey but my turkey burgers always come out so dry! I like how moist yours look, especially with that filling!
