I love to serve these burgers up on a hot day! I enjoy turkey burgers much more than beef burgers. :-) For a jucier burger, try not to use the leanest ground turkey. The leaner the turkey, the drier your burgers will be.

Yum! These are delicious and flavorful! They're definitely a nice change from the usual beef burgers. I used soy swiss cheese in place of the gruyere for dietary reasons, and only used 3 scallions. Other than that I followed the directions exactly, and they turned out fabulous! Thanks for a new Summer favorite, Angela!
- 1 1⁄2 lbs ground turkey
- 1⁄2 cup gruyere cheese, finely grated
- 4 scallions, thinly sliced
- 1⁄4 cup dried breadcrumbs (may need to add more)
- 1⁄4 cup Dijon mustard
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- salt and pepper, to season
- olive oil, to oil grill
Directions See How It's Made
- First you will want to heat your grill to HIGH.
- In a bowl, combine your turkey with grated cheese with a fork.
- Then add the scallions, breadcrumbs, garlic, and mustard.
- Season with salt and pepper.
- Then gently form turkey mixture into four patties, approximately 1 inch thick.
- If you have trouble forming patties, you may need to add more breadcrumbs; it really depends on the amount of moisture that your meat contains.
- Lightly oil your grill and place patties on the hottest point of your grill, and sear them until they are browned*this will take approximately 1-2 minutes on each side* Move the patties to a"cooler" part of the grill, and continue grilling until they are cooked through, aproximately 5-10 minutes on each side.
- I serve these on buns (i grill my buns a little!), tomato, lettuce, and some enjoy pickles on them!
