Turkey Burgers with Rosemary "Aioli"

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 if you wish like oregano, basil or parsley would be great.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Ground turkey doesn't have much flavor, but the rosemary adds a woodsy flavor to the burger. I love the creaminess of the aioli. Again, you taste fresh rosemary, but it's not overpowering. There's a bit of zing from the vinegar. Topped with tomato, pickles, and onion, this is one tasty turkey burger.

Step-By-Step

1For "Aioli": In a small bowl combine mayo, rosemary, garlic, vinegar, olive oil, Dijon and salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate while you prepare the rest of the meal.
2For burgers: In a medium bowl, combine turkey, onion, garlic, rosemary, Worcestershire, pepper, and salt.
3Form into 4 patties and grill over medium hot coals for about 5 minutes per side placing a slice of cheese on each patty 3-5 minutes before it's done. For indoor cooking, preheat a griddle to medium heat and cook about 5 minutes per side.
4Butter the cut side of each bun and grill until golden about 1-2 minutes, same goes for the indoor preparation.
5Allow burgers to rest a few minutes before serving. Assemble topping with lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles and "Aioli." Enjoy!
