Grilled Turkey Burgers with Gouda

Serves 6

Using a combination of dark and light meat turkey makes a particularly tender and flavorful burger.

  • 2 pounds ground turkey (preferably 1 pound thigh and 1 pound breast)
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped yellow onion
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 red onion, thickly sliced into rings
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 ounces Gouda cheese, sliced

Prepare a grill for medium-heat cooking. In a large bowl, combine turkey, bread crumbs, chopped onion, Worcestershire sauce and salt. Gently mix together until just combined. Divide the mixture into 6 equal portions. Flatten into patties about 5 inches in diameter and no more than 3/4-inch thick (patties will shrink and thicken as they cook).

Skewer onion rings on metal skewers, putting about 2 slices on each skewer. Brush slices on both sides with oil.

Grill burgers and onions until browned on one side, about 4 minutes. Flip and grill on the other side, about 2 minutes. Top burgers with cheese, cover grill, and continue cooking until onions and burgers are fully cooked and cheese is melted, about 2 minutes more. Serve burgers topped with onions as they are or in buns with your choice of condiments.
