- 4 Servings
- 15 mins Prep Time
- 25 mins Total Time
- 1 lb. 85% Lean / 15% Fat Ground Turkey (however, use whatever lean point you prefer!)
- 4 slices white cheddar cheese
- ½ a yellow onion, finely chopped
- 1 tsp. salt
- ½ tsp. pepper
- 1 tbsp. garlic powder
- 1 tsp. paprika
- 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
- 1 cup arugula
- 4 oz. goat cheese with garlic and herbs
- 1 heirloom tomato, sliced
- 4 brioche buns
Red Wine Pickled Red Onions
- ½ red onion, thinly sliced
- ¼ cup water
- ¼ cup red wine vinegar
- ¼ cup red wine
- 2 tbsp. sugar
- 1 tbsp. salt
Step 1First heat the grill to high heat. Prepare the red wine pickled onions first by adding the water, vinegar, red wine and sugar, and salt to a saucepan. Bring to a simmer then remove from heat.
Step 2Place the sliced red onion in a bowl or mason jar and pour the vinegar mixture over the onions. Set aside while you prepare the burgers.
Step 3Place the ground turkey in a large mixing bowl and add diced onion, salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, and Worcestershire sauce. Incorporate well with hands or a wooden spoon.
Step 4Using a ¼ cup measuring cup, carefully form 4 thin patties and place on a sheet of parchment paper.
Step 5Take a slice of cheese and fold in half, then in half once more. You should end up with 4 small squares. Place this stack on top of one patty. Repeat for the remaining 3.
Step 6Using the remaining ground turkey mix, form 4 more thin patties and place on top of the cheese. Press the edges together and ensure the cheese is fully enclosed in the burger.
Step 7Begin grilling by greasing the grates with canola oil. Cook the burgers on the first side for 5 minutes, covered. Carefully flip them over and cook for an additional 7-9 minutes or until the temperature of the turkey has reached 165°F.
Step 8Remove and set aside to rest while you build the burger. On a brioche bun layer goat cheese, heirloom tomato, pickled red onion, the burger patty, and top with arugula. Enjoy!
