Ingredients

2 pounds ground turkey

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce 

1 teaspoon garlic powder 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 

6 ounces pepper jack cheese, shredded 

Vegetable oil, for the grill

2 large peaches, sliced into 1/4-inch slices 

1 tablespoon olive oil 

1/2 cup mayonnaise 

Several dashes of your favorite hot sauce 

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 

6 brioche or pretzel hamburger buns 

1 cup arugula 

Directions

  1. Mix together the ground turkey, Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 teaspoon of the garlic powder, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl. Portion the burger patties using a 1/2 cup measuring cup. Level off each scoop. Using your fingers, form a well or slight hole in the middle of the burger. Fill the well with 3 tablespoons of the cheese. Gently press to form a patty and completely cover the well of cheese.
  2. Heat grill pan or grill over medium-high heat (about 400 degrees F). Liberally oil the grill pan or grill. Cook the burger patties until a meat thermometer reads 165 degrees F and the cheese is melted on the inside, 6 to 8 minutes on each side. The cheese inside the burgers is hot, so let the burgers rest 5 minutes before serving.
  3. Toss the peaches with the olive oil in a small bowl. Season with a pinch of salt. Place the peaches on the grill until grill marks appear, 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Be careful not to overcook the fruit. Grill only until grill marks are present on each side.
  4. Whisk together the mayonnaise, hot sauce and remaining 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. To assemble the burgers, spread the sauce on the bottom bun. Add the arugula and the burger patty and top it off with a sliced peach. Serve immediately.

Cook’s Note

Measure the meat with a measuring cup to ensure the burgers are the same size throughout. You can use ground beef or ground chicken instead of turkey. Try adding fresh grilled fruit instead of tomatoes to burgers to switch things up. Try grilled peaches, mango or pineapple.
