Cheese Stuffed Burger Things
Sunday, February 1, 2009 | Time: 2:54 PM


Reading through one of Rachel Ray's magazines, I came across a little article about these neat looking breaded burgers-on-a-stick. Sort of like croquettes on a stick, I guess. Me being the bento enthusiast I am, as well as always interested in something cute for a snack, I had to try this.
My origional results weren't so good though. The meat is wrapped around some cheese on a stick and pan-fried. But around the edges and, especially, where the meat meets the stick, it doesnt ever touch the pan and therefore does not cook.
In the end, I ended up X-ing the sticks and just making breaded, cheese-stuffed, burger patties.
And they are excellent!! The breading gives it a lovely crunchy coating and the inside is filled with seasoned meat, plus a gooey creamy cheesy center! Cant go wrong with these.

Ingredients:

1 pound Ground Turkey
1 tsp onion powder
2 tsp garlic powder
2-3 peices Laughing Cow Cheese (or other melty cheese)
2 cups panko (or bread crumbs)
about 3 tbs olive oil

Method:

In a large bowl, mis ground turkey, spices and 1/2 cup bread crumbs. Make little patties (about walnut size) and wrap them around a nickle-size peice of cheese. Rollin remaining bread crumbs to coat.
Heat a skillet up with some olive oil and fry patties on both sides until brown. Load them onto a baking sheet with a rack and bake in oven (375 F) for about 15 min or until done though.
Serve with your favorite condiments!
These aren't so good refridgerated, as the breading tends to get soggy.

I also made these using crunched up corn chips (instead of panko) and I put salsa in the meat mixture. Mm! Yum! Lots of different possibilities with this one :)
