Hooray for National Cheeseburger Day! Double hooray that it conveniently falls on a Superfood Friday! That's because it gives me the perfect excuse to share two new and exciting meaty, cheesy, mouthwatering recipes: Chicken Parm Burgers with an cheesy center and flavorful Greek Burgers with Feta and Roasted Red Pepper. Both dishes offer a special spin on the classic, while touting unique health properties and sensational taste. Get ready to celebrate this joyous holiday by sinking your teeth into these champion cheeseburgers.
Just imagine a chicken Parm hero combined with a saucy, juicy burger and a surprise cheese-filled center. I typically use ground chicken for this recipe, but you can easily swap in ground turkey meat if it's easier to find at the store. And while I stuff fresh mozzarella chunks into the middle for a richer and more gooey center, any mozzarella variety works, including part-skim shredded or even string cheese. Go ahead and serve these hearty burgers on a whole-grain bun, over salad greens or on a mound of whole-grain pasta, spaghetti squash or zoodles. My taste testers will vouch that there's absolutely no wrong way to enjoy 'em!

Turkey burgers are going Greek — and they're filled to the brim (bun?) with savory goodness! This recipe is a super fun way to spice up your patty, and it has definitely been a welcome addition to my family's menu rotation. Follow my lead and serve them on warm toasty pita bread topped with sliced tomato, crispy lettuce and a dollop of tzatziki. These meaty gems are jam-packed with flavor and each bite is a party for your palate.
