Turkey Burgers with Smoked Gouda

By adding two flourishes to a simple grilled turkey burger, Bobby Flay makes it fantastic. First he melts slices of smoky Gouda cheese onto the meat, then he spreads toasted buns with a sweet-spicy sauce of mustard, horseradish and honey.

  1. 1 red onion, cut into 1/3-inch-thick slabs
  2. Vegetable oil, for brushing
  3. 4 hamburger buns, split
  4. 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
  5. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  6. 4 slices of smoked Gouda cheese (4 ounces)
  7. 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  8. 2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
  9. 1 tablespoon drained prepared horseradish
  10. 1 tablespoon honey
  1. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Brush the onion with oil and grill until charred and softened, about 5 minutes. Brush the cut sides of the buns with oil and grill until toasted, about 30 seconds.
  2. Form the ground turkey into four 1-inch-thick patties and brush with oil. Season with salt and pepper and grill over high heat, turning once, until nearly cooked through, about 10 minutes. Top with the Gouda, close the grill and cook until the cheese is melted and the burgers are cooked through, about 1 minute longer.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the mustards, horseradish and honey and spread on the bottom half of the buns. Top with the burgers and onions. Close the burgers and serve right away.

Suggested Pairing

The nutty, smoky Gouda cheese on these turkey burgers, together with the spicy horseradish and mustards, suggest a rich white wine rather than a red. Look for a luscious Viognier from Australia.
