Recipe notes
This turkey burger recipe has all the flavors of a Cobb salad with smoky bacon, avocado, blue cheese, and tangy mayonnaise on toasted country bread.
RECIPE Preparation
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Place bacon on a rack set over a rimmed sheet pan and bake until crisp, about 20-25 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Lightly brush each slice of bread with olive oil and season with salt & pepper. Place on a sheet pan and bake until lightly crisp, about 10 minutes, turning once. Set aside.
  4. In a small bowl, stir together Roquefort and crème fraîche. Set aside.
  5. With wet hands, form four 6 ounce turkey patties. Season both sides of each patty with salt and pepper. Cook your patties using a hot oiled grill or pre-heated, lightly-greased cast iron pan until just cooked through. Internal temperature should read 165 degrees F on an instant read thermometer. Rest the patties on a cutting board for at least 5 minutes.
  6. While the burgers are cooking, whisk together mayonnaise, garlic, chives, Dijon, and red wine vinegar in a small bowl. Taste for seasoning, add salt and pepper, if needed. Spread mayonnaise mixture over the toasted bread. Top each slice with 3 lettuce leaves and 2 slices of tomato. Season tomato with salt and pepper.
  7. Top with turkey burger. Spoon on Roquefort mixture and add sliced avocado. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
