  • 1
    Begin by gathering your ingredients.
  • 2
    In a food processor, add peppadew peppers to a food processor and pulse a few times until they are in a fine dice.
  • 3
    Add shredded cheddar, cream cheese, mayo, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and a pinch of salt and pepper to the food processor. Pulse until the mixture is well combined.
  • 4
    Measure out 1/3 pound of ground turkey and flatten it into a burger shape. Place about 2 tablespoons of pimento cheese right in the center of the burger.
  • 5
    Carefully shape the ground turkey around the filling. It's okay if some filling is leaking out but try to keep it enclosed as much as possible.
  • 6
    Finish all the burgers before cooking them. You will have some leftover pimento cheese. It's great on crackers!
  • 7
    When the burgers are finished, season them well with salt and pepper.
  • 8
    Heat a cast iron skillet (or grill) to medium-high heat. Once hot, add a drizzle of oil and the turkey burgers. Cook them for 4-5 minutes per side until the burgers are cooked through and seared nicely. I actually prefer to cook these in a skillet so the filling stays in the burger.
  • 9
    Let the burgers cool for a minute or two so the filling isn't too hot. Then serve the burgers on a toasted bun with condiments, red onions, lettuce, and sprouts.

More About This Recipe
  • I like a good burger as much as the next guy, but to be honest I usually shy away from the turkey burger. They’re so lean that they tend to get a bit dry when cooked through – and they can be a bit on the bland side. The solution to both of these problems is actually the same: Stuff them with something with lots of flavor that gives some moisture to the burger. My choice? Pimento cheese! This Pimento Cheese Turkey Burger is going to rock your world!
