Jay's "volcano" burger meets the kid test!

This week the final four contestants were challenged to come up with a turkey burger for the toughest audience of all—kids. When all was said and done—and eaten—it was Jay Jacobs's "volcano" burger that led the way.

4 oz extra lean ground turkey
1/2 cup shredded iceberg lettuce
2 T ketchup
1 T shredded low fat mozzarella cheese
1 T shredded low fat cheddar cheese
1 small whole wheat hamburger bun (such as Sandwich Thins)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Form ground turkey in a cone shape to look like a volcano with center somewhat hollow. Bake in oven for 10-15 minutes.

Place bottom of bun in center of serving plate. Distribute lettuce around bun to simulate grass. Place burger cone on bun. Spoon ketchup into the hollowed out portion of the burger, and drizzle down the side to make it look like lava coming out. Sprinkle the top of volcano with cheeses. Set bun top on side. Makes one burger.
