 Ingredients List

  • 2 ts Plus 1 tablespoon olive oil,
  • Divided
  • 1/2 md Onion, peeled and minced
  • 2 md Cloves garlic, peeled and
  • Minced; divided
  • 1 lb Lean ground turkey
  • Grated peel of 1 lemon
  • 2 tb Chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 ts Dried sage leaves, crushed

1. Heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in a small skillet, add the onion and 1 clove
minced garlic. Saute until softened, about 5 minutes. Cool. 2. Combine the
onion mixture with the ground turkey, lemon peel, parsley, sage, thyme,
salt and pepper. Divide into quarters. Break the cheese slices in half and
force 2 into the center of each section of turkey. Flatten and refrigerate
until ready to use. (The cheese can also be put on top of the burgers when
cooked.) 3. Stir together the remaining tablespoon olive oil and minced
clove of garlic. Brush on one side of each bun. 4. Broil or grill the
burgers on a lightly oiled rack until no longer pink in the center and the
juices run clear. Place the buns cut side down around the edge of the grill
to toast lightly, or toast under a hot broiler. Place each burger on a bun
and serve with condiments.
