1 1/2 lb ground turkey (preferably 93% lean)
1/2 c finely grated Gruyere cheese

Directions:
Heat the grill to high. In a medium bowl, use a fork to gently combine the turkey with the Gruyere, scallions, breadcrumbs, Dijon mustard, and garlic; season generously with salt and pepper. Dividing the mixture evenly, gently form the mixture into four 1-inch-thick patties. Lightly oil the grill. Place the patties on the hottest part of the grill; sear until browned, 1-2 minutes per side. Split the buns and toast on the grill if you like; place a burger on each bun and serve with desired accompaniments.

Personal Notes:
This recipe has been passed down by generations of Norwegians and will make you pine for the fjords. No one has made these burgers with lutefisk since 1887, and I don't recommend trying it now. I put a lot of oil on the burgers to keep the turkey from sticking to the grill.
