Mediterranean Turkey Burger with TomaProvence

Makes 3 burgers


This isn’t the boring turkey burger of your past– it’s flavorful, moist and perfectly charred.  TomaProvence and tzatziki sauce give it a deliciously light feel, perfect for the hottest of summer days.


1 lb ground turkey

1 tablespoon mixed fresh herbs, finely minced (we like a combo of sage, thyme & chives)

2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pepper

Non-stick spray

3 lettuce leaves, washed and dried

1 tomato, sliced

½ cup tzatziki sauce (store-bought or homemade)

3 oz Point Reyes TomaProvence, thinly sliced

3 hamburger buns (toasted, if desired)


In a bowl, mix ground turkey, mixed herbs, parsley, garlic, salt and pepper until fully combined. Divide the mixture into 3 burger patties slightly larger than the hamburger buns.


Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium heat. Cook turkey patties for 4-5 minutes on each side, until internal temperature reaches 165°F when checked with a meat thermometer. 


To assemble the burgers, place lettuce, tomato and a layer of tzatziki sauce on the bottom bun.  Top with turkey patty, TomaProvence and top bun. 


Serve immediately. 


Note: If you want your cheese melty, leave cooked patties in cast iron skillet, top with TomaProvence, and cover pan.  Cheese should be melted within a couple of minutes.
