DIRECTIONS

  • Marinara-heat oil in medium saucepan over medium heat; add onion and garlic; cover and cook, stirring frequently, until translucent, about 5-7 minutes.
  • 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.
  • Stir in basil and remove from the heat; transfer to a food processor and pulse to form a coarse-textured sauce.
  • Return to the pan and set aside.
  • Burgers-place turkey, scallions, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, lemon zest, oregano, pepper, and salt in a large bowl.
  • Gently combine, without overmixing, until evenly incorporated.
  • Form into 8 thin patties about 4 inches wide and 3/8 inch thick.
  • Combine 1/4 cup cheese and basil and place an equal amount in the center of 4 patties.
  • Cover with the remaining patties and crimp the edges closed.
  • Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  • Add burgers and cook, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center reads 165°, 8-10 minutes.
  • Reheat the marinara on the stove.
  • 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.
