  • Yield: 4 burgers
Save Recipe


1/2 cup mayonnaise

3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves

10 Kalamata olives

1 1/4 pounds ground turkey

2 tablespoons chopped dried tomatoes packed in oil

3/4 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves

Salt and pepper

4 sesame buns

1 1/2 cups packed arugula


  1. In a small bowl stir together mayonnaise and basil. Pit and chop olives. In a large bowl blend together olives, turkey, tomatoes, thyme, and salt and pepper, to taste. Form mixture into 4 (1-inch-thick) patties. When forming patties, handle meat as little as possible for a juicier burger. Prepare grill.
  2. Grill burgers on an oiled rack set 5 to 6 inches over glowing coals about 4 1/2 minutes on each side for well-done. (Alternatively, burgers may be cooked in a hot well-seasoned cast-iron skillet or ridged grill pan.) Make sure burgers are cooked through. Toast sesame buns. Transfer burgers to buns and top with basil mayonnaise and arugula.
