1 .  Place turkey in a large bowl with all ingredients.  Using clean hands, combine and mix well, but do not overwork the meat.

Divide and shape into 2 burgers. If not grilling immediately, leave wrapped in refrigerator.

2 .  Insert plates on grill side. Preheat the Cuisinart® Griddler® Compact to High.

3 .  Once preheated, place the burgers evenly spaced on the grill and cover . Cook for about 8 to 10 minutes, until well grilled and the juices run clear.  The internal temperature of the meat should be 170°F when tested with an instant read thermometer.

4 .  Serve hot on grilled buns or English muffins.*


*Note: If grilling buns, do so right before grilling burgers.
