  • 1 ½ pounds lean ground turkey

Mix together the ground turkey, 2 tablespoons of pesto sauce, seasoned salt, bread crumbs, basil, Parmesan, and thyme. Form into 4 patties, and use your thumb to make a small dimple in the center of each. Grill over medium-high heat until no longer pink in the center, about 6 minutes per side.

Toast Kaiser rolls and spreads bottoms with remaining pesto sauce. Top each burger patty with provolone cheese, Boston lettuce, and sliced tomatoes. Serve on rolls.
