  1. Mix ground turkey, black beans, salsa, garlic, garlic powder, and Worcestershire sauce together in a large bowl; shape into 4 patties.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over low heat; add onion, increase heat to medium-low, and cook and stir onion until softened and beginning to change color, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer onion to a bowl and set aside.
  3. Heat remaining olive oil in the skillet over medium heat. Fry patties in the hot oil until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 8 to 10 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  4. Top each patty with some of the onion and a slice of American cheese.

I really enjoyed this recipe! The ground turkey I used was a little on the wet / finely ground side and because of that my burger patties wanted to fall apart; but they tasted very good; I loved the caramelized onion and melted cheese on top and the garlic flavor of the turkey burger. I caramelized my onions for about 15 - 20 minutes to get them good and browned and tender, but other than that followed the recipe exactly. Thanks!!

I left out the salsa (don't like hot stuff), and added more beans to it. Like another review mentions, it wanted to fall apart on me bc of the added beans, but it turned out really tasty.
