Using a combination of dark and light meat turkey makes a particularly tender and flavorful burger.
Ingredients: 
  • 2 pounds ground turkey (preferably 1 pound thigh and 1 pound breast)
  • 1/2 cup dry whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 1/4 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 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
Method: 
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 skewers, putting about 2 slices on each skewer. (If using wooden skewers, soak in water for 30 minutes before assembling.) 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.
