Directions

  1. Marinara-heat oil in medium saucepan over medium heat; add onion and garlic; cover and cook, stirring frequently, until translucent, about 5-7 minutes.
  2. Stir in fresh tomatoes and any juices, sun-dried tomatoes, salt and pepper; bring to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until tomatoes have broken down, 8-10 minutes.
  3. Stir in basil and remove from the heat; transfer to a food processor and pulse to form a coarse-textured sauce.
  4. Return to the pan and set aside.
  5. Burgers-place turkey, scallions, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, lemon zest, oregano, pepper, and salt in a large bowl.
  6. Gently combine, without overmixing, until evenly incorporated.
  7. Form into 8 thin patties about 4 inches wide and 3/8 inch thick.
  8. Combine 1/4 cup cheese and basil and place an equal amount in the center of 4 patties.
  9. Cover with the remaining patties and crimp the edges closed.
  10. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  11. Add burgers and cook, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center reads 165°, 8-10 minutes.
  12. Reheat the marinara on the stove.
  13. To assemble the burgers, spread 3 tablespoons marinara on each toasted focaccia, top with a burger, about 3 more tablespoons marinara and 1 tablespoon remaining cheese.
