Turkey Burgers with Grilled Onions and Blue Cheese

Ingredients
1 pound ground turkey breast meat*
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce (see note)
6 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon black pepper, divided
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
8 ounces thinly sliced onions
1 ounce crumbled blue cheese

Directions
1 – Combine turkey, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, 2 teaspoons oil, paprika, cumin, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in medium bowl. Shape into 4 patties.

2 – Heat 2 teaspoons oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, swirling to coat bottom of pan. Cook patties 4 minutes on each side or until no longer pink in center. Remove from heat and place on serving platter; cover to keep warm.

3 – Add remaining 2 teaspoons oil to pan residue in skillet. Heat over medium-high heat and cook onions 4 minutes or until beginning to richly brown, stirring frequently. Stir in remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Spoon onions over patties and top with cheese.

*Note: Ground turkey breast is made from white meat only, with no skin. It’s leaner than regular ground turkey, which is made from white and dark meat with some skin. Frozen ground turkey is usually all dark meat with skin, and is 15% fat, similar to ground sirloin.

**Note: Check the nutrition label on the Worcestershire sauce to be sure it’s gluten-free. Some varieties may contain gluten, while others are gluten-free.

Yield: 4 servings.
