Heat a skillet medium-high to high heat.  Mix ground turkey, ground pork, worcestershire sauce, cayenne, cumin and shallot together.  Form your burgers into 4 larger sized burgers, or about 8 small burgers; then spray skillet with cooking spray (or use 1 Tablespoon olive oil).

Make an indention with your finger and add the cheese chunks to the center. Cover with the meat around the top. Add burgers to pan and cook for about 5 minutes, then flip burgers.  Cook for another 4 minutes, then add cheese slices to the top of burger.  Add a lid to the pan and allow the cheese to melt; about 1 minute.  Spread Greek yogurt on buns, add baby spinach, sliced avocado and tomato, burger and enjoy!
