Nothing like sweet September days. Not too hot, not too cold – perfect weather to be outdoors for anything and everything. This time of year make it so easy to want to continue that fabulous grill season. Whether you’re planning a tailgate or need a new burger after months of ordinary beef burgers, this turkey burger fits the bill. It gets a little sweetness from barbecue sauce and a whole lotta smokey from Beemster Smoked Gouda. Adding the cheese and barbecue sauce to the ground turkey gives it a flavor boost and keeps it perfectly moist. Topping these burgers with more sauce and cheese just seals in all of the great flavor. Best of all, you only need 5 ingredients and 30 minutes to get these burgers on your table.
