Pretzel burger buns
What You'll Need
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Shape the ground turkey into 3 equal patties, about ½ inch thick. Season the patties on both sides with salt and pepper. In a large cast-iron skillet or frying pan (with a lid) over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon olive oil. When the pan is searing hot, add the patties and cook until browned on the first side, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and continue to cook until no longer pink at the center, 3 to 4 minutes longer. Toward the end of cooking, top each patty with 1 or 2 slices of cheese, and cover the pan to melt, 30 seconds. Transfer the patties to a plate and keep warm.
Wipe out the pan and return it to the heat. Add 3 buns, cut-side down, and toast until warm, 1 minute. Thinly slice the tomato(es) into rounds. Peel, pit, and slice the avocado.
To build the burgers, place the buns on plates, spread with the aioli, and stack with the turkey patties, tomato, and avocado. Serve warm, with any of your favorite fixings.
Note: The ground turkey may arrive frozen for freshness. Store it in the refrigerator to defrost before cooking. If you need to defrost it the same day, place the sealed package in a bowl of cold water, and leave the tap running in a thin stream for about 30 minutes.
