How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Add cheese, stirring with a fork just until combined. Divide turkey mixture into 12 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/4-inch-thick patty.

Step 2

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add 4 patties; cook 2 minutes. Carefully turn patties over; cook 2 minutes or until done. Place patties on a large baking sheet in a single layer. Repeat procedure with remaining patties. Cool patties to room temperature. Cover with plastic wrap; freeze until firm. Place in a single layer in zip-top plastic bags; freeze up to 3 months.

Step 3

Thaw patties overnight in refrigerator.

Step 4

Preheat oven to 400º.

Step 5

Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray. Place patties on baking sheet in a single layer; cover with foil. Bake 10 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Keep warm.

Step 6

Combine mayonnaise, pickle, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl. Cut rolls in half horizontally. Spread about 1 teaspoon mayonnaise mixture on bottom half of each roll; top each with 1 turkey patty and 1 piece lettuce. Cover with tops of rolls. Serve immediately.

I've made these a couple of times and they are delicious - even the leftovers get gobbled up the next day! Lots of flavor for a turkey burger. Used good quality gorgonzola and potato rolls, which are a must. Served with baked sweet potato fries.

I discovered this recipe years ago and it's the star of my annual Christmas party, people look forward to it all year long. Very easy to make ahead and freeze, then warm up right before guests arrive.

I could really taste the cheese, which was delightful. I used mini dills instead of the gherkins. Will make again and again.
