Ingredients

1/4
cup
mayonnaise
2
tablespoons
grated Parmesan (1/2 ounce)
1
teaspoon
fresh lemon juice
1/2
teaspoon
Dijon mustard
3
cloves garlic, finely chopped
1
anchovy fillet, finely chopped (optional)

pounds
ground turkey (dark meat or 93 percent lean or less)
3/4
cup
grated Gruyère or Swiss cheese (3 ounces)
1/2
teaspoon chili powder
4
hamburger buns

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, Parmesan, lemon juice, mustard, ⅔ of the garlic, anchovy (if using), and ⅛ teaspoon black pepper.
  2. Meanwhile, heat grill to medium-high. In a medium bowl, combine the turkey, Gruyère, and remaining garlic. (Do not overwork the meat.)
  3. Form the mixture into four ¾-inch-thick patties and season with the chili powder, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  4. Grill the patties, turning once (do not press), until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 160° F, 6 to 8 minutes per side.
  5. Place the burgers on the buns and top with the Caesar spread.
