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


  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.
