Ingredients

  • 1 package of your favorite ranch dip plus ingredients to prepare it -We used Simply Organic Ranch Dip mix (1/2 cup buttermilk and 1/2 cup mayonnaise)
  • 6 strips thick cut pork bacon
  • 1 pound ground turkey thighs
  • Salt and pepper
  • Olive oil
  • At least 4 slices sharp Cheddar
  • Avocado
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato
  • Red Onion
  • 4 whole-wheat buns

Directions

Make ranch dip mix per package directions. Refrigerate.

Cook bacon, as desired, in a saute pan on the stove. Set aside on a paper towel.

Fire up the charcoal in chimney starter. Recommeded: Kingsford Charcoal with Mesquite Chips.

Mix ground turkey and salt and pepper in a bowl. Form turkey meat into 4 equal size patties. Brush both sides with olive oil. This will prevent them from sticking to the grill.

Grill burgers over hot coals for 4 minutes each side.

Slice up the cheese, avocado, lettuce, tomato, and red onion. Grill onions if desired.

Top burgers with Cheddar. Cook until melted. Toast buns. Assemble as follows:
