Marieke Smoked Gouda Turkey Burgers

Smoked Gouda Turkey Burgers

Football and Fall is upon us, therefore grilling on Sunday is mandatory. Marieke Smoked Gouda holds up very well in these turkey burgers. By cubing the cheese, rather than grating, you get big gooey melty bites. I served these with a kale and butternut squash hash, so I didn't feel the need to add any veggies to the burger... sometimes a burger just needs to be naked. May induce food coma and/or saying explicit words out loud.

Burger Ingredients:
1 lb ground turkey
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt and cracked black pepper, or to taste
2 tablespoons whole grain mustard
2 tablespoons fresh chopped flat leaf parsley
4 healthy dashes of Worcestershire sauce
8 oz Marieke Smoked Gouda, 1/4 inch cubes

4 whole wheat buns
Lucky Layla Butter, room temp

*Yields 4 burgers

Combine burger ingredients in a large bowl, mashing with your hands (you just gotta get in there). Form 4 patties. Make an indention with your thumb in the center of the patty to prevent burger bulge. Grill over medium high heat, about 10 minutes per side. Dress buns with butter and lightly toast on the grill. Assemble and serve with your favorite mustard.
