Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 8 ounces ground turkey
  • 12 ounces sweet Italian turkey sausage, removed from casings
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 8 thin slices pancetta
  • 4 ounces sliced Italian fontina cheese
  • Four 3-by-3-by-1/2-inch squares focaccia, split and lightly toasted
  • 1 plum tomato, sliced
  • 1 cup baby arugula
Directions
  • Mix the mayonnaise with the garlic in a small bowl and set aside. Using your hands, mix together the turkey and turkey sausage in a large bowl until just combined. Form this mixture into four 1-inch-thick patties.

  • Preheat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil and pancetta slices and cook the pancetta on both sides until crisp, about 3 minutes. Drain on paper towels and reserve.

  • Place the same skillet over medium-high heat and add the burgers. Cook, turning once, until cooked all the way through, about 5 minutes per side. Top with the fontina and cook until just melted.

  • To serve, place the burgers on the focaccia bottoms. Top with tomato slices, pancetta and arugula. Spread the focaccia tops with garlic mayonnaise, set on top of the burgers and serve.
