These tasty burgers incorporate shredded Gruyère cheese and Dijon mustard in the patty, rather than on top, which prevents the bun from getting soggy. Breadcrumbs add even more texture.


  • 1 ½ pounds ground turkey (93 percent lean)

  • ½ cup finely grated Gruyere cheese

  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced

  • ¼ cup dried breadcrumbs

  • ¼ cup Dijon mustard

  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • Oil


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

  2. Lightly oil grill. Place patties on hottest part of grill; sear until browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Move patties to cooler part of grill; continue grilling until cooked through, 5 to 10 minutes per side.
