Heat grill to med-high heat. Drain zucchini in colander and dry slightly with paper towel. Combine turkey, zucchini, bread crumbs, onion, 1 T of sauce, egg white, cumin and salt in a large bowl. Shape half of mixture into 4 patties, 1/4-inch thick. Place 1 T cheese in center of each patty. Shape remaining turkey mixture into 4 patties, 1/4-inch thick and place on top of cheese-topped patties. Press edges to seal while shaping.
