We love this turkey burger recipe from the Everyday Food Great Food Fast cookbook. Turkey & green onions are a really good combination in my book.
Favorite Turkey Burgers
1 1/2 lbs. ground turkey (preferably 93 percent lean)
1/2 cup finely grated Gruyere cheese (I use whatever I have on hand, usually cheddar)
4 scallions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup dried breadcrumbs
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1 garlic clove, minced
1. Heat the grill to high. In a medium bowl, use fork to gently combine the turkey with the cheese, scallions, breadcrumbs, Dijon mustard, and garlic; season generously with salt and pepper. Dividing the mixture evenly, gently form into four 1-inch-thick patties.
2. Lightly oil the grill. Place the patties on the hottest part of the grill; sear until browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Move the patties to the cooler part of the grill; continue grilling until cooked through; 5 to 10 minutes per side.
3. Split the hamburger buns and toast on the grill if you like; place a burger on each bun and serve with desired accompaniments.
