- 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey (preferably 93 percent lean)
- 1/2 cup finely grated Gruyere cheese
- 4 scallions, thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup dried breadcrumbs
- 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- coarse salt
- fresh ground pepper
- vegetable oil, for grates
- 4 hamburger buns
2. Lightly oil the grill. Place the patties on the hottest part of the grill; sear until browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Move the patties to the cooler part of the grill; continue grilling until cooked through, 5 to 10 minutes per side.
3. Split the hamburger buns and toast on the grill if you like; place a burger on each bun and serve with the desired accompaniments.

From my experience: I had to change this recipe up a bit because of what supplies I had available. I didn't have any Dijon mustard, so I used spicy brown mustard and a little bit of mayo for the creamy flavor of Dijon. Also I had Gruyere (which I don't even know how to pronounce) slices, so instead of grating it, I put a slice on each of the turkey patties. Since I didn't use the cheese in the ground turkey mixture, I used a little extra breadcrumbs. Overall, my turkey patties came out a little tangy, but tasted great when put together as a burger. My husband, Jake, said at dinner that night he didn't think he would like a burger made of turkey but it was actually pretty good. I'd say that equals success in my house, enjoy!
