Ingredients

  1. Check 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
  2. Check 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  3. Check 1 tablespoon 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 1/4 pounds ground turkey (dark meat or 93 percent lean or less)
  9. Check 3/4 cup grated Gruyère or Swiss cheese (3 ounces)
  10. Check 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  11. Check 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  12. Check 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.
