Favorite Turkey Burger

This is a great alternative to beef hamburgers for this weekend if you are trying to watch your calorie intake. They are so flavorful and juicy.

Favorite Turkey Burger
Serves 4

1 1/2 lb. ground turkey (preferably 92 to 93 percent lean)
1/2 c. finely grated Gruyere cheese
4 thinly sliced scallions
1/4 c. dried breadcrumbs
1/4 c. Dijon mustard
1 minced garlic clove
Salt and Pepper

Heat grill to high. In a medium bowl, use a fork to gently combine all ingredients and season with salt and pepper. Gently form mixture into four 1 inch thick patties.

Lightly oil grill. Place patties on hottest part of grill, sear until browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Move the patties to cooler part of the grill, continue grilling until cooked through, 5 to10 minutes per side.
