  • Step 1

    In a large skillet, cook the bacon over moderately high heat until crisp. Drain on paper towels and break each strip in half.
  • Step 2

    Sprinkle ground turkey with kosher salt and pepper. Mix gently until well combined.
  • Step 3

    Form into four 4-ounce burger patties.
  • Step 4

    Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat with olive oil. Add the patties and cook for 4 minutes, until golden brown and firm when pressed.
  • Step 5

    Flip the burgers and cook for an additional 3 to 4 minutes or until the meat reaches an internal temperature of 165°F using a meat thermometer. Top with a slice of cheese and let cheese melt for 1 minute.
  • Step 6

    Set aside and allow to rest.
  • Step 7

    Spread mayonnaise on the cut sides of the buns; set the burgers on the bottoms and top with the bacon and roasted poblano and toppings of your choice.
