Hey Food Finders!
If you're craving a cheeseburger, these Garlic, Herb, and Cheese Stuffed Turkey Burger Bites on Baby Portobellos are the perfect solution.
They are fun to make, to look at, and to eat! To top it all off, you can have 5 of them for 1 SP! You just can’t beat that. I used Garlic and Herb Laughing Cow Cheese to make these, but you can use any Laughing Cow flavor that you and your family like best. Your kids will love piling their burger bites high with an assortment of fun veggie toppings. You can grill, broil, or pan fry the mushrooms and burger bites, which makes them the perfect meal for any season, and it can be ready in 20 minutes!
Recipe makes 15 Cheesy Stuffed Burger Bites
5 burger bites = 1 SP, 196 calories, 37g protein
⅓ of creamy ketchup dipping sauce (recipe below) = 1 SP & 30 calories
Note: If you use regular ketchup add an extra 1 SP & 10 calories.
1 lb. 99% fat free ground turkey
3 Garlic & Herb Laughing Cow Light wedges (or any flavor you like)
15 baby portobello mushroom caps, cleaned
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp salt
½ tsp black pepper
1 cup chopped lettuce
15 jarred jalapeno slices (optional)
15 slices of cherry tomato
15 dill pickle slices (cut to fit the burger bites)
Chopped red onion
Ingredients for Creamy Ketchup Dipping Sauce:
6 tbsp fat free sour cream
3 tbsp Heinz no-sugar ketchup (if you use regular ketchup add an extra 1 SP)
Unwrap the Laughing Cow Cheese wedges and slice each wedge into 5 equal pieces so you have a total of 15 small “cubes” of cheese.
Spray a broil pan with oil, place the baby portobello mushroom caps on the pan, and spray the tops. Broil on medium heat for 10 minutes or until cooked thoroughly.
In a medium size mixing bowl, combine ground turkey, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, salt & pepper. Mix well. Divide the mixture into 15 “meatballs.” Take the first and slightly flatten it out in your palm. Place one Laughing Cow cheese “cube” in the center and close the turkey mix around it so that the cheese is in the the center of your burger-bite. Once sealed around the cheese, flatten the burger out a little and place it to the side. Repeat until all 15 burger-bites are stuffed.
Spray a large grill pan with oil and place the pan on medium heat. Once heated, place all stuffed burger bites in the pan. Cook for 4- 5 minutes on each side, or until the turkey burger is cooked all the way through.
To make the dipping sauce:
Combine the sour cream and ketchup and mix well. You can make it more elaborate with Tabasco, spices, or fresh herbs as well.
Now comes the fun part...
Putting it all together! Create a toppings bar with lettuce, tomato, pickles, jalapenos, chopped red onion, or anything else you love on your burgers. Place each stuffed burger-bite on top of a baby portobello mushroom cap and top with as many veggies as you like to make a giant bite! Sticking a colorful toothpick down the center of the burger-bite will help to hold them together until your'e ready to eat them!
Eat, enjoy, and have fun!
