Mozzarella Stuffed Bruschetta Turkey Burgers with Balsamic Glaze

Mozzarella Stuffed Bruschetta Turkey Burgers with Balsamic Glaze

I know, it's been a while since I posted.  I am on a health kick right now so am trying new recipes.  We had this one tonight and it was so, so good....and easy!  I am not usually a ground turkey kind of girl but these were very flavorful.  We used some bruschetta that I bought at Sam's Club but I am sure this homemade bruschetta is also amazing.
