Ingredients
  • == BURGERS ==
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 oz. goat cheese
  • ⅓ cup watercress
  • 4 Canyon Bakehouse Hamburger Buns
  • == LEMON HONEY MUSTARD ==
  • ⅓ cup dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon lemon zest, freshly grated
  • 1 teaspoon orange juice
  • 1 ½ Tablespoons honey
  • ⅛ teaspoon cracked black pepper
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, make the lemon honey mustard by whisking together the dijon mustard, lemon juice, lemon zest, orange juice, honey, and black pepper. Place in the refrigerator, covered, for at least 2 hours to allow the flavors to marry.*
  2. In a large bowl, combine ground turkey salt and pepper, mixing well. Form into 4 equal patties, and set aside.
  3. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Grill the burgers for 3-4 minutes per side (depending on thickness) or until cooked through.
  4. Before taking the burgers off of the grill, place 1 oz of goat cheese on top of each burger. Cover the grill to allow the cheese to melt a bit, and continue to cook for one minute.
  5. Remove burgers from the grill and place on a gluten-free Canyon Bakehouse Hamburger Bun. Top with Lemon Honey Mustard and watercress, to taste.
  6. Enjoy!
Notes
* I prefer to make the lemon honey mustard 12-24 hours in advance, for best flavor.
** Serve with my Spicy Baked Sweet Potato Fries! They are awesome dipped in any leftover lemon honey mustard!
