These tasty burgers incorporate cheese and mustard in the patty, rather than on top.

The recipe worked as described but made the following changes. I adjusted for 1 pound of 93/7 ground turkey, and formed 2 burgers from the mixture. I fried in a cast iron skillet for 3 minutes on medium high, using canola oil (I did not flip the burgers). Then transferred to the broiler on high, second rack for ~10 minutes, until browned and bubbling. Then baked for 5 minutes at 350 F. Let cool 5 minutes before serving (still too hot!). Overall, we were very pleased with the outcome! Thanks Martha.

My family wasn't thrilled with this burger. Maybe I used too many bread crumbs, but the burgers fell apart and tasted grainy. The flavor itself wasn't bad, though!

Easy to make, moist and full of favor. Served the burgers on a brioche bun with a slice of tomato and bib lettuce. Great recipe!

Very easy to implement recipe. Had all ingredients except Gruyere used Parmesan. I used my outdoor grill with a pizza stone on half the grates and started out the patties on the pizza stone to get them a little more "solid." Worked out very well. Kept the lid closed most of the time, I'd say a combined ten minutes of grate/stone cooking. Very, very tasty burger. Will tweak this for meatballs. Five Nods

Love this recipe, it is my "go to" burger. I've used Asiago instead of Gruyere, also gives it a nice flavour.

Great recipe! I've made it twice, once as burgers and once as meatballs. Both times they came out mouthwateringly perfect. They are so flavourful that they can be eaten without condiments!

Yum! There is something about scallions and swiss cheeses that just compliment one another so well. Was on the look out for a great Turkey Burger recipe for years….I am glad we finally found one another!

This has been my go-to turkey burger recipe for years! Always, always a hit, even for guests who prefer beef burgers. Its the grated cheese that makes this extra special and moist. If you dont like Gruyere, use Swiss. Also, I substitute the garlic for two teaspoons Herbes de Provance.

This is an absolutely wonderful recipe. I use it all the time; and people always ask me for the recipe. I double the recipe, and freeze individual patties for use throughout the month. Highly recommend using the gruyere cheese; it is so worth it.

I'm wondering what the garnishes on the burger in the photo. It looks like roasted poblano or something.

this truly is the best turkey burger I have ever eaten. Sometimes I substitute the gruyere for monterrey jack or pepper-jack, or whatever I have on hand.

I have been using ground chicken, instead of turkey, less expensive,( daughter does not care for turkey) and better taste. Use same recipes, really quite good.

This is the best turkey burger I have ever had!!! My family loves it too! I always use panko crumbs and ground turkey breast and it turns out great. If I'm out of gruyere cheese, I just leave it out and that works too.

This great, quick and easy recipe is almost the same as my French beef burgers that I used to preparing for years topped with sauteed mushrooms, served without bun and extra Dijon mustard on the side. But using ground turkey au lieu of beef is just as delicious. Thanks Martha for bringing back one of my favorite recipe and turning it healthier! Meme

These are awesome. I have also made them in to mini as apps and served on mini brioche. Note, don't over-cook!

I like to use low fat shredded cheese, crumbled bacon and add a packet of Hidden Valley fat free ranch powdered dressing to the turkey breast. Then I top it with guacamole instead of ketchup. You could also top with BBQ sauce for nice alternative. Make extras, wrap individually in plastic wrap and foil, then freeze. You can microwave them after you have already grilled them and don't lose any of the flavor.

I made this burger and it was so tasty but I'm not picky. On the other hand my family is super pick and everyone loved it and I'll be puting this one in the rotaion. Nice health alternative to burgers.
