Turkey Burger with Apricot Mustard and Gorgonzola

I took a trip to Washington, DC this past weekend for the Cherry Blossom Festival, and pretty much ate my way through the city in the process. My favorite spot was a gorgeous gourmet market called Dean & Deluca in the middle of Georgetown. They have a deli with THE BEST sandwiches I have ever tasted! If you know me, you know my favorite food is not a fancy entrĂ©e, or a decadent dessert… but a turkey sub. I split two sandwiches with my boyfriend. (He got the club sandwich, which weighed 1.25 pounds!) They both had this amazing apricot mustard spread on top that I just had to recreate. With a craving for turkey burgers and a desire to recreate this delicious spread, here is the result.

Turkey Burger with Apricot Mustard and Gorgonzola
Serves: 2  Prep: 10 minutes  Total: 40 minutes

1 pound ground turkey meat
1 egg
Salt and pepper
2 tbs grainy mustard
2 tbs apricot jam
½ cup Gorgonzola cheese
1 tomato
2 hamburger buns

In a small bowl, mix mustard and apricot jam until blended. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, mix ground turkey meat with egg and season with salt and pepper. Add Gorgonzola cheese into the ground turkey and mix well. Mold into two large burger patties. Grill patties until the insides are no longer pink.
Grill the hamburger buns on each side for one minute. Spread the top buns with a generous helping of apricot mustard. Place the turkey burgers on the buns and top with remaining Gorgonzola cheese and sliced tomato. Serve with pickle and a side of crispy potato chips.
