Pesto Turkey Burgers

Let's say you are looking for a yummy alternative to the usual hamburger. Let's say you like pesto. Let's say you like blue cheese. Added bonus: lean turkey burger. Try these- they aren't dry like other turkey burgers I've tried, and the Blue Cheese mayo puts them over the top into stratospheric deliciousness.

Pesto Turkey Burgers- makes 4 burgers
1 lb. lean ground turkey
2 Tbs. prepared pesto
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 c. seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 c. mayonnaise
1/4 c. crumbled blue cheese
4 large rolls

Preheat outdoor grill to high heat. Mix together ground turkey, pesto, salt and pepper.
(Mmm, raw meat is so appetizing, don't you think?)
Add bread crumbs and mix till blended. Form into 4 patties.
Mix together mayo and blue cheese. Chill.Grill patties until no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes each side.
Half and butter large rolls. Toast rolls on grill. Serve burgers with blue cheese sauce.
