DIRECTIONS

1 Place a grill basket on one side of grill. Preheat to medium-high.

2 Toss onion, bell pepper, oil, 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning and pepper

in a large bowl. Transfer to the preheated grill basket. Cook, stirring

a few times, until the vegetables are soft, 12 to 15 minutes.

3 Meanwhile, combine ground turkey, sausage, breadcrumbs,

fennel seeds, garlic powder and the remaining 1 teaspoon Italian

seasoning in a medium bowl. Shape into four 4-inch patties.

4 Oil the grill rack (see Tip), place the burgers on it and cook for

4 minutes. Turn them over, top with the grilled vegetables and

cheese; continue grilling until the burgers are cooked through

and the cheese is melted, 4 to 6 minutes more. Serve on buns.
