Make

  1. Heat up a skillet or non-stick pan over medium heat. Add cooking oil and then patties to heated oil. Cook on both sides for 5 to 6 minutes, until the turkey patty reaches 165F / 74C. Once turkey is cooked through, top with cheese and cook for another minute.
  2. While turkey patties cook, make vinaigrette by whisking together paprika, red wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, maple syrup, and cooking oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Toast buns. Slice tomatoes for burgers and set aside some greens from your salad ingredients for burgers too.
  4. Toss cherry tomatoes and greens with vinaigrette when burgers are ready. Enjoy your cheeseburgers with toppings and whatever condiments you enjoy and salad on the side!
