Juicy Turkey Burgers

I will post about yesterday's trip tomorrow.  I have hundreds of photos to work my way through.  It was a unique experience and I am sure you will enjoy seeing it.  Today I thought I would post these turkey burgers I made the other day.  I've never been a big fan of turkey burgers but these are terrific.
Several hours or a day ahead of cooking these, mix 1 pound of ground turkey with 2 T. of olive oil.  Add 1-1/2 tsp. of dijon mustard, 2 minced garlic cloves, 1 T. chopped fresh parsley, 1 T. Italian seasoning, 1 tsp. granulated garlic, 1/2 tsp. cracked black pepper, 1/4 tsp. seasoned salt and a teaspoon or so of hot sauce.  Mix this together well and refrigerate it until the flavors blend.  When you are ready to cook them, form them into 4 patties.

I toasted some of my homemade hamburger buns in a bit of butter and I cooked the turkey burgers on a griddle pan.

Figure out what kind of cheese you want to use on them.  I used a delicious Double Gloucester. This cheese is so good that I always have some in my fridge.

These burgers have to be cooked through but the olive oil keeps makes them juicy.

Top them with the cheese and let them sit until the cheese melts.

I spread the buns with mayonnaise.

They were so good that I added nothing else to them.
