  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup diced onions
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 teaspoon chopped oregano
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons breadcrumbs
  • Dash of Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup diced avocado


Heat oil in a small sauté pan over medium heat. Add onions and cook until golden, about 10 minutes. Stir in garlic during the last minute of cooking.

Mixture together onions, turkey, oregano, mustard, egg, breadcrumbs, Worcestershire, salt and pepper. Divide turkey mixture into 8 portions and form into thin patties. Set aside.

In a small bowl, combine cheese and avocado. Heap the filling mixture on 1 patty so it stays in the center, with a clean edge all the way around. Place the other patty on top of the fillings and press the edges together with a fork to seal.

Preheat grill to medium-high heat and lightly spray grill grates with oil. Grill to desired doneness, flipping just once during cooking.
