The Best Turkey Burger in the World!

I can guarantee these are the best turkey burgers you will ever try.  This recipe has been floating around for about the last 5 years, and it's our go to for a juicy burger.  This recipe is originally from Everyday FOOD by Martha Stewart in her July/Aug. 2003 issue.

1 1/2 lbs. ground turkey ( 92% to 93% lean)
1/2 cup finely grated Gruyere cheese
4 scallions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup dried breadcrumbs ( whole wheat)
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1 garlic clove, minced
salt and pepper

  1. Heat grill to high.  In a medium bowl, use a fork to gently combine turkey, cheese, scallions, breadcrumbs, Dijon, and garlic; season generously with salt and pepper.  Gently form mixture into 4  1-inch thick patties.
  2. Lightly oil grill.  Place patties on hottest part of grill; sear until brown, 1 to 2 minutes per side.  Move the patties to cooler part of grill; continue grilling until cooked through, 5 to 10 minutes per side.
