Turkey Juicy Lucy

Minneapolis is famous for its “Juicy Lucy”—a thin burger with an oozing cheese filling. Have lots of napkins on hand—and be sure to wait a minute or two after you take these off the fire before you bite into them to avoid getting burned!

  • Cuisine:




1 1/2 pounds of lean ground turkey
2 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
3/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of ground black pepper
4 slices of American cheese
4 hamburger buns


  1. Combine the turkey, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a bowl and mix well. Divide into eight equal portions and form each into a thin patty about 3 1/2 inches in diameter. Fold each slice of cheese into quarters to form a thick square. Place one cheese square into the center of four of the patties. Cover cheese with remaining four patties. Tightly pinch the edges of the patties to form a tight seal and reshape into neat patties if necessary.
  2. Preheat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add the patties and cook until nicely browned on the bottom, 5 minutes. Turn the patties and cook 3 minutes. Cover the skillet and cook until the patties are fully cooked through, about 2 minutes longer. Place one patty on each of 4 buns and serve with condiments of your choice.
