(cook time)


  • 1 Pound Perdue fresh ground turkey breast
  • 1/4 Cup medium or hot salsa
  • 3 Tablespoons dry breadcrumbs (optional)
  • 2 Teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 8 thin slices of cheddar cheese (about 2 ounces)
  • 2 medium tomatoes, sliced
  • 8 dinner rolls, split
  • 3/4 Cups prepared gaucamole


Mix turkey and salsa just until combined. If mixture is too moist to hold shape, mix in breadcrumbs. Shape into eight equal patties.

Heat a wide skillet over medium-high heat. Coat bottom of pan with oil.

Place patties in pan (cook in two batches if needed to fit in pan). Cook three to four minutes until browned; turn and cook until second side is brown. Top each with a slice of cheese and cook until internal temperature is 165°F.

Place burgers between split dinner rolls and top with a tomato slice and a heaping tablespoon of guacamole. Serve immediately.
