Form mixture into 12 patties. Place 1 slice goat cheese in the center of each of six patties, top with remaining patties. Pinch seams of patties together to seal. Grill stuffed burgers and onion slices 6-8 minutes per side, or until thermometer registers 165F.
To give this basic burger an all over flavor boost:
STEP 1: ADD EXTRA FLAVOR
Ground turkey and beef are both tasty on their own, but adding extra flavor with minced garlic, parsley, peppers and onions makes them even yummier.
Use your hands to mix them into the meat all at once.
STEP 2: FORM PERFECT PATTIES
A great burger is loose enough to melt in your mouth, but firm enough to hold its shape. To make one, toss a handful of seasoned meat from hand to hand to form a ball; place on a baking plan and flatten it with your fingers.
STEP 3: STUFF THEM WITH FLAVOR
Cheeseburgers are yummy, but can be boring. The alternative: a stuffed cheeseburger. Bite into one and surprise -- scrumptious cheese! Just place a 1 1/2 ounce piece of your favorite cheese between two half-sized patties; press edges to seal.

Obviously, this will work just as well with beef as it does with turkey or chicken.
