Ingredients

1
pint
grape tomatoes, halved
2
tablespoons
cider vinegar
1
tablespoon
brown sugar
pinch of allspice
pinch of cinnamon
kosher salt and black pepper
vegetable oil for grill
1 1/4
pounds
ground turkey (dark meat or 93 percent lean or less)
3/4
cup
grated Gruyère or Swiss cheese (3 ounces)
2
cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2
teaspoon
chili powder
4
squares of focaccia, split

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, combine the tomatoes, vinegar, sugar, allspice, cinnamon, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  2. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until the mixture thickens, 8 to 10 minutes. Set aside. (The chutney can be served warm or at room temperature.)
  3. Heat grill to medium-high; oil the grate. In a medium bowl, combine the turkey, Gruyère, and garlic. (Do not overwork the meat.)
  4. Form the mixture into four ¾-inch-thick patties. Make a shallow well in the top of each (to prevent overplumping while cooking). Season with the chili powder, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  5. 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.
  6. Serve the burgers on the focaccia, topped with the chutney.
