Cheddar Bacon Turkey Burger {Using Kraft Fresh Take!}

Raise your hand if you are ready for grilling season!!

In our house, when we say “burger”, it’s turkey.  I feel a lot of people think turkey burger = dry hockey puck.  If you haven’t tried to make your own turkey burgers yet, this is a great recipe to get you started.

When you are buying turkey for burgers, make sure you get the package that says “LEAN” (or 93%), not “EXTRA LEAN”.  Extra lean will be super dry, that is a better variety for lettuce wraps or tacos.

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 package ground turkey (usually 1.25 lbs)
  • 1 package of Kraft Fresh Take Cheddar Jack & Bacon
  • Grill seasoning (we like McCormicks Montreal Chicken)
  • Buns and whatever toppings you prefer
  1. Heat up your Foreman grill, or whatever your are cooking your burgers on
  2. In a large bowl, mix turkey and Fresh Take together.  Season with about 2-3 tablespoons of grill seasoning.
  3. Place on grill.  Remember, since it’s turkey you have to cook it completely through!  If you would like to season with some seasoned salt now, go for it!
  4. Place on bun and top with your favorite condiments!


We have tried many varieties of Kraft First Take and love them all!  The Chili Lime Panko makes excellent fish tacos!
