  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 8 small cubes cheddar (or Muenster cheese), 1/2 inch (optional)
  • 2 to 4 lettuce leaves
  • 8 small dinner rolls (soft, or canned biscuits work, too!)
  • Ketchup
  • 8 thin slices plum tomato
  • Cooking Directions

    Preheat the broiler. Adjust the oven rack so the burgers will be 4 inches from the heat source.

    In a large bowl, stir together the ground meat, Worcestershire sauce, oil, and salt until blended. Divide into 8 equal-size balls.

    With kids: Roll the meat in your hands to make a meatball. Then flatten the meatball between the palms of your hands to make a patty. Place the patties on a broiler tray. If you want to make cheeseburgers, press a cube of cheese into the center of each patty. Check to be sure the cheese cubes are completely buried in the burger patties.

    Broil the burgers for 3 minutes. Turn and broil until just cooked through, about another 3 minutes.

    With kids: While the burgers are broiling, tear the lettuce leaves into small pieces.

    Split the rolls and layer ketchup, lettuce, tomato, and burger on the bottom half of each. Cover with the top of the roll and serve.

    Makes 8 mini (1.5 ounce) burgers
