Turkey Burgers with Whole Grain Mustard & Chive Mayo


  • 1 1/2 pounds ground dark meat turkey, preferably organic
  • 3 tbsp. minced chives
  • 2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 5 English muffins
  • 2 small avocados, thinly sliced
  • 3 ounces arugula
  • 5 slices provolone cheese
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 2 tbsp. whole grain mustard
  • 2 tbsp. chives, minced
  • 2 tsp. dijon mustard
  • Dash of hot sauce, such as Cholula
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat grill or grill pan to medium high heat. Clean and oil the grates.

  2. In a bowl combine the turkey, chives, salt, pepper and cayenne. Mix thoroughly and form into 5 even sized patties. Flatten down slightly and set aside until ready. 

  3. While the grill is preheating, make the mustard-mayo dressing. Combine everything in a small bowl, whisk together and taste for seasoning. 

  4. Grill burger patties 5-6 minutes per side, or until cooked through (165 degrees). Remove and let rest for a couple of minutes.

    While the burgers rest, grill the English muffins 1-2 minutes per side or until lightly charred. 

  5. To assemble the burgers spread some of the mustard-mayo on the top and bottom inside of the muffins. Place a slice of cheese on the bottom muffin, followed by the grilled burger, a couple slices of avocado and a handful of arugula. Top with the top half of the muffin. 

    Continue with remaining burgers. Serve immediately.
