Ingredients

1 1/4
pounds
ground turkey (dark meat or 93 percent lean or less)
3/4
cup
grated Gruyere or Swiss cheese (3 ounces)
2
cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2
teaspoon
chili powder
kosher salt and black pepper

Directions

  1. Heat grill to medium-high. Oil the grill grate. In a medium bowl, combine the turkey, Gruyère, and garlic (do not overwork the meat). Form the mixture into four ¾-inch-thick patties and make a shallow well in the top of each. Season the patties with the chili powder, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  2. Grill the patties, turning once (do not press or flatten), until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 160° F, 6 to 8 minutes per side. Serve on rolls with the desired toppings.
