Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium bowl, combine the ground turkey, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, parsley, scallions, 3/4 teaspoon salt, the pepper, milk, and egg. Form the mixture into four patties, each about 1-inch thick.

  • In a large nonstick frying pan, heat the oil over moderate heat. Add the turkey burgers and cook for 5 minutes. Turn and then top each burger with the provolone cheese. Cook until just done, about 6 minutes longer.

  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise and the pesto. Cut the focaccia into quarters. Cut each piece in half horizontally. Spread the cut surfaces of each piece with the pesto mayonnaise.

  • Top the bottoms of the focaccia with the turkey burgers and then the tomato slices. Sprinkle the tomato with a pinch of salt. Cover with the top piece of focaccia.

Serve With

Burgers go best with other finger food—oven-roasted potato wedges and raw carrot or fennel sticks, for example.

Suggested Pairing

This meaty sandwich should be paired with a fresh, full-flavored red, perhaps one made from the versatile, food-friendly Barbera grape. Several are imported from Italy's Piedmont region.
