SMOKED GOUDA POBLANO TURKEY BURGER
1 poblano pepper
½ pound ground turkey breast
½ cup dry oats
½ cup chopped onion
2 ounces smoked Gouda cheese, shredded
1 tablespoon lime juice
½ teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
2 whole-wheat buns
Heat a skillet or grill to medium heat. Roast whole poblano pepper until the skin is blackened. Carefully peel off roasted skin, chop poblano into small chunks and set aside until cool.
In a medium bowl, mix the turkey breast, chopped poblano, oats, onion, Gouda cheese, lime juice, cumin, garlic powder, kosher salt and black pepper. Form the mixture into 2 4-ounce patties.
Spray the cooking surface with cooking spray and place the patties on top. Cook for approximately 5 minutes on each side until the patties reach an internal temperature of 160 Fahrenheit. Remove from heat and allow them to rest until reaching 165 Fahrenheit. Serve on buns.
