1 1/4 pounds ground turkey (dark meat or 93 percent lean or less)
3/4 cup grated Gruyère or Swiss cheese (3 ounces)
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
Kosher salt and black pepper
Heat grill to medium-high. Oil the grill grate. In a medium bowl, combine the turkey, Gruyère, and garlic (do not overwork the meat). Form the mixture into four ¾-inch-thick patties and make a shallow well in the top of each. Season the patties with the chili powder, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
