Blue Cheese Mesquite Turkey Burger with Caramelized Onions

Summertime means grilling and burgers! And lately I have been craving a really good burger – in this case, a Blue Cheese Burger with Caramelized Onions. I love taking a traditional summer food and getting creative with different flavors and toppings.

Blue Cheese Mesquite Turkey Burger with Caramelized Onions

For this Blue Cheese Mesquite Burger with Caramelized Onions I decided to go with ground turkey. Besides experimenting with different flavors and toppings for burgers, I like to use different meats – like this ground turkey.

Between the moist turkey meat, blue cheese crumbles, and mesquite barbecue sauce, this burger is packed with a powerful punch of flavor and is perfect for any barbecue.

I really love Cracked Wheat Kaiser Rolls from Cobblestone Bread Co. and use them all the time for burgers, like in this recipe for my Blue Cheese Mesquite Turkey Burger with Caramelized Onions.
