Total Time:

4 servings

  • 1 cup roughly chopped fresh chives
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 pounds free-range ground turkey meat
  • 1/4 cup finely diced shallots
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 red bell pepper, finely diced
  • 4 brioche burger buns
  • 4 homemade or store-bought roasted tomato halves
  • 1 bunch watercress, cleaned and stemmed
  • 1/2 cup homemade or store-bought ranch dressing
  • Special equipment: 4 large skewers

  • Place the chives in the pitcher of a blender with the olive oil. Blend until smooth.

  • In a medium bowl, add the chive puree, turkey, shallots, mustard, salt and bell peppers. Using clean hands, blend the mixture together until incorporated. Portion the turkey into 4 large burger patties and place on a tray and refrigerate.

  • On a hot grill or in a hot saute pan, sear the burgers on each side and then reduce the heat or move the burgers to a cooler spot on the grill, and continue to cook for 10 to 12 minutes. To test for doneness, poke the burgers with a skewer and press down to see if the juices run clear, or a meat thermometer inserted in the center reads 150 degrees F.

  • Split and toast the buns, and then top each with a burger, a piece of roasted tomato, some watercress and some ranch dressing. Top each with the other half of the buns, then place a large skewer through the burgers and serve!
