1 tablespoon grill seasoning
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO), plus additional for drizzling
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
1/4 cup sour cream
Few dashes hot sauce
1 tablespoon chives, chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 avocados, pitted and fruit removed from the skin
Juice of 1 lime
2 pounds ground turkey breast
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped or grated
4 to 6 sundried tomatoes, reconstituted for a few minutes in a bowl of hot water and chopped
1/4 cup chopped parsley
8 slices center-cut bacon
4 sandwich-size English muffins, toasted
2 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and sliced
1 large pickle, sliced lengthwise
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
Preheat oven to 400F.
Place potato wedges on a baking sheet and drizzle with some EVOO. Sprinkle grill seasoning over them and toss to evenly coat. Transfer to the oven and roast, turning occasionally, until golden brown and crispy, about 50 minutes.
While the potatoes are roasting, combine the blue cheese, sour cream and chives in a small mixing bowl. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and set it aside to top the burger.
In another small mixing bowl, mash the avocado with a fork. Add the lime juice, hot sauce and some salt and freshly ground black pepper, and mix to combine. Set aside while you prepare the burgers.
Heat 2 tablespoons EVOO, about 2 turns of the pan, in a large skillet over medium-high heat. While it heats, combine the turkey, garlic, chopped sundried tomatoes and parsley in a small bowl. Season the mixture with salt and pepper and mix well with your hands. Pat the meat down gently in the bowl and use the side of your hand to divide it into four portions. Scoop out one portion and shape it into a patty, then place it into the hot skillet. Place the other three burgers into the pan and cook them through, 4-5 minutes per side.
Once you get all the burgers into the pan, place the bacon slices onto a baking sheet and toss them into the oven with the potatoes until crispy and golden brown, 6-8 minutes.
When the burgers and bacon are finished, spread the avocado mixture over four English muffin bottom halves. Top each half with a burger and divide the blue cheese mixture between the four burgers. Top each one off with a few slices of hard-boiled egg, pickle and onion, and cap them off with the other English muffin half. Serve these babies up with some oven fries and enjoy!
