  • 2 pounds red-skinned potatoes, unpeeled
  • Salt
  • 20 ounces ground turkey
  • 1/3 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 1 ounce slices of cheddar cheese, quartered
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons snipped chives (optional)
  • Dijon mustard
  • 8 small dinner rolls or potato rolls, split


Cut the potatoes into 1/2-inch cubes, place in a large pot and cover with an inch of water. Salt the water and bring to a boil over high heat. Continue boiling until the potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine the ground turkey with the bread crumbs, egg, sage and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Divide the mixture into eighths and form into 1/2-inch-thick patties.

Heat the 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large grill pan over medium heat. When the oil is rippling hot, add the patties and cook, flipping once, until cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Place 2 small cheese squares on each burger.

When the potatoes are cooked, drain them and immediately toss with the remaining 1/4 cup of olive oil, the vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and the chives.

Serve each burger on a roll spread with mustard. Serve 2 burgers on each plate with the potato salad.
