Before you start
These burgers can be cooked either using an outdoor grill or in a pan on the stovetop.
- Coarsely chop the onion and celery, then put them in a bowl. Add the ground turkey, oregano, mustard, salt, and pepper. Mix well using a fork, then bring the combined ingredients together with your hands to form a firm mixture.
- Divide the mixture into twice the number of the needed servings. Shape each portion into rounds and flatten each one slightly. Crumble the cheese and place a small amount in the centre of half of the rounds (about 2 tablespoons of crumbled cheese per round). Place the remaining meat rounds on top of the cheese topped rounds. Use your hands to mould the rounds together, encasing the crumbled cheese, and shaping them into burgers.
- Cook the burgers on a lightly oiled medium grill for about 10 min, or until cooked through, turning them once. Alternatively, you may cook the burgers on a nonstick, heavy-bottom pan, over very high heat.
- Place each burger in between 2 slices of wheat-free bread. Serve with mustard and ketch-up on the side.
