Turkey Burgers with Gruyere

  • Servings: 4


  • 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey, preferably 92 to 93 percent lean
  • 1/2 cup finely grated Gruyere cheese
  • 4 thinly sliced scallions
  • 1/4 cup dried breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Vegetable oil, for grill
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • Sliced tomatoes, red or white onion, ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, and lettuce leaves, for serving


  1. Heat grill to high. In a medium bowl, use a fork to gently combine ground turkey with cheese, scallions, breadcrumbs, mustard, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Gently form mixture into four 1-inch-thick patties.

  2. Lightly oil grill. Place patties on the hottest part of the 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 to 10 minutes per side.

    No spongy turkey burger here. This is simply AMAZING. There was so much bite and juicyness to this recipe. Very filling and a definite crowd pleaser.
