I’ve taken the flavors in a Cuban sandwich to make these Cuban Turkey Burgers all the more delightful.
- 1 ½ pound ground turkey
- ½ cup chopped red onion
- 3 tablespoon finely chopped parsley
- 2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
- ½ cup mayonnaise
- ¼ cup grainy mustard
- vegetable oil (for brushing)
- 8 thin slices Swiss cheese
- 4 sesame seed buns (split)
- 4 red-leaf lettuce leaves
- 8 slice cooked Canadian bacon
- 2 dill pickles (sliced)
Place turkey, onion, parsley, Dijon mustard, and 1 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Season with pepper, and mix gently. Shape into four ½‑inch-thick patties, cover, and refrigerate until cold and firm, about 30 minutes.
Mix mayonnaise and grainy mustard together in a small bowl. Cover, and refrigerate for up to 1 day.
Preheat grill to medium-high. (If you are using a charcoal grill, coals are ready when you can hold your hand 5 inches above grill for just 3 to 4 seconds.) Brush grill with oil. Season both sides of patties with salt and pepper. Grill, flipping once, until cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Top each burger with 2 cheese slices during final 30 seconds of cooking.
Grill buns, flat sides down, until toasted, about 30 seconds. Spread mayo-mustard mixture mixture on bottom bun, top with 1 leaf lettuce, 1 cooked burger, 2 Canadian bacon, slices and some pickles. Sandwich the burger with a top half, repeat with remaining burgers.
