Yes.  That’s a mouthful of a title for a recipe… but I seriously considered adding additional descriptions.

When you taste something like this… you just want to talk about it.  You want to describe it well.  You want to make sure everyone else can taste it through your words.

Seriously, with this burger, there are almost no words.

Flavorful.  Mediterranean.  Italian.  Tomatoey.  Charred.  Melty.  Gooey.  Satisfying.  Sweet.  Savory.  Amazing.  Fresh.  Summery.

Those are just a few of the words I came up with for this recipe from Iowa Girl Eats.  As always, I made a few modifications to make it work with what I had in the refrigerator… but this burger is my new go-to.  I only made one, but I’ll tell you… I can’t wait to make my next one.

Oh, and where’s the bun?  Don’t care.  Didn’t need one.  (Yes, it’s still me talking…)  While I love my bread, this burger stands alone in the most delicious way.  TRY IT and then give me some words for how it tastes.  I know I missed a few….

3.  Line a peanut butter jar lid with foil, then plastic wrap and press 1 portion of the turkey mixture into the lid. Add your cheese wedge into the middle, then top with another portion of turkey. Press down to seal, then invert the patty onto a plate.   Note:  I used a food mold and it had the same effect.  It was a LOT less messy than stuffing burgers as I normally do, and made them uniform!  Great technique!

4.  Grill burgers for 4-5 minutes on each side, until done.  Note:  The cheese was oozing out of mine because I smashed it down a little with a spatula… still delightful!

5.  For balsamic glaze: heat balsamic vinegar in a sauce pan over medium heat. Let simmer, and stir frequently, until the vinegar has reached the consistency of thin maple syrup.  Note:  I used pre-prepared balsamic glaze, as I had it on hand.  
6.  Top grilled burgers with bruschetta and drizzle with balsamic glaze.
