Preparation

Step 1

Directions

Make the avocado spread:
In a food processor, combine the avocado, sour cream, vinegar, lime juice, salt, and a large pinch of pepper. Pulse a few times to break up the avocado, then gradually add the oil with the motor running and process until smooth. (It should have the consistency of mayonnaise.) Transfer to a bowl, then stir in the cilantro and check the seasonings. The spread will keep, covered in the refrigerator, for up to 3 days.

Make the burgers:
In a large bowl, combine the turkey, yogurt, lemon zest, mustard, and thyme, then season with salt and pepper. Gently mix together with a fork or your hands.

Divide the meat into 8 even-size balls. Gently press each one into a patty about 1/4 inch thick. Put 1 chunk of cheese in the center of each of 4 patties, then cover with the remaining 4 patties. Seal the cheese inside by gently pressing the patties together all the way around the edges. Season the patties with salt and pepper.

In a grill pan or large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat until it shimmers. Add the burgers and cook until browned on the first side, about 3 minutes. Flip them over and cook until browned and cooked through, about 3 minutes more. (If a bit of cheese oozes out, don’t worry; the crusty bits left in the pan are the best part, so just peel them off and eat them.) Transfer the burgers to the buns and serve with toppings.
