  • 16 ounces boneless, skinless turkey thighs, trimmed of fat

  • 7 strips bacon (about 7 ounces)

  • Coarse salt

  • 3 ounces Swiss cheese, thinly sliced

  • 4 English muffins

  • 4 thin slices tomato, sprinkled with flaky sea salt (such as Maldon), for serving

  • Sliced avocado, romaine-lettuce leaves, and mayonnaise, for serving


  1. Cut both meats into small pieces. Grind through the large holes of a meat grinder. Combine in a bowl, then grind together through small holes of grinder. Divide into 4 equal parts (each about 5 3/4 ounces). Form into patties, each about 3 1/2 inches in diameter.

  2. Preheat grill to medium-high. Season both sides of burgers with coarse salt. Grill until a meat thermometer inserted in centers reads 168 degrees, about 5 minutes a side, placing cheese on burgers in last minute. Meanwhile, grill muffins until toasted, 30 seconds. Sandwich burgers on muffins with tomato, avocado, lettuce, and mayonnaise.
