Turkey Burgers
Level: Easy
Total: 24 hr 30 min
Prep: 20 min
Inactive: 24 hr
Cook: 10 min
Yield: 4 servings


Meyer Lemon-Honey Mustard:
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1 heaping tablespoon clover honey
1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
1 teaspoon fresh Meyer lemon juice, from Meyer lemons, if possible
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 1/2 pounds 90-percent lean, freshly ground turkey (not all white meat), chilled
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
8 slices goat cheese, sliced 1/2-inch thick
4 sesame seed hamburger buns, split and lightly grilled
Watercress, for serving


For the Meyer lemon-honey mustard: Whisk together in a small bowl the mustard, honey, orange juice, lemon zest, lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 24 hours to allow the flavors to meld.

For the burgers: Preheat the grill to high. Form the meat into four 6-ounce burgers. If you are not going to cook right away, keep the burgers cold in the refrigerator. Sprinkle the burgers on both sides with salt and pepper. Grill until cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes on each side. During the last minutes of cooking, add 2 slices of cheese to each burger, cover the grill and let the cheese soften slightly, about 1 minute. Put the burgers on the buns, drizzle with some of the Meyer lemon-honey mustard and top with a few sprigs of watercress. Serve with extra mustard on the side.

Cook’s Note
If you are unable to find Meyer lemons, mix 1/2 teaspoon fresh orange juice and 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice.

  1. Im glad to see you. I saw you at the derby doing southern fried chicken. Im from atlanta ga and that was not Southern fried chicken I'm sorry but that was an embarrassment. Im seventy three years old and i know how to prepare fried chicken from the deep South. Shame on you bobby. I don't think you've spent a lot of time in GA,because what you cooked yesterday at the derby I just wouldn't eat. Lights camera action.

  2. Why do turkey burgers always have to turn into some horribly sweet concoction? A beef burger is typically savory so let's try and make a really good turkey burger in the same style and spirit.
