Ok, so I say "Aioli" because it's a fake-out really. Just store bought mayo jazzed up a bit for ease. Also, you can use any herbs you like instead of rosemary. Oregano, basil, or parsley would be great.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Turkey burgers can be boring - but not these turkey burgers. They are filled with a woodsy flavor from the fresh rosemary. We love the creaminess of the aioli on top. Using homemade mayonnaise means you can quickly whip up this aioli (it would be good on ground beef burgers too). It has a light rosemary flavor and a little sing from the red wine vinegar and Dijon mustard. Serve on a Kaiser roll with tomato, pickles, and onion and you have one tasty turkey burger.
