Dead simple, four ingredients, shockingly delicious.  As the recipe says the panko keeps the turkey from becoming dense and acquiring that yoga-mat texture turkey burgers sometimes have; the mayo keeps it moist throughout; and the cheese works its usual magic.  All of it together makes a burger that I promise will not just compete with all other turkey burgers you’ve had but may give your favorite beef burger a run for its money.

I combined all the ingredients and shaped the burgers a few hours before cooking and it worked out fine. These are so good I recommend trying them first with no condiments or accessories.  I happened to have the only good off-season tomatoes on hand and started with some of those sliced on top but found it distracting and unnecessary and took them off.  Truly, these burgers don’t need a thing.
