1 lb (500 g) ground Ontario turkey

1 cup (250 mL) finely grated old Cheddar cheese

4 green onions, minced

2 tbsp (25 mL) fresh breadcrumbs

1 tbsp (15 mL) Dijon mustard

1 clove garlic, minced

½ tsp (2 mL) each salt and fresh cracked pepper

4 slices cooked Ontario bacon, halved

4 slices tomato

4 Boston lettuce leaves

4 soft hamburger buns


In bowl, use a fork to gently combine turkey, Cheddar, green onion, breadcrumbs, Dijon, garlic, salt and pepper. Divide the mixture into four 1-inch (2.5cm) thick patties.

Heat the grill to high and grease well. Grill patties, searing until browned on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to indirect heat, cover and grill until cooked through, about 6 minutes per side.

Split the buns and place a turkey burger on the bottom half of each bun; top with bacon, tomato and lettuce.
