Turkey Burgers with Goat Cheese and Citrus Maple Dijon

This didn't sound very good to me, but um - it was AMAZING!!!  I couldn't get enough of it!!  I LOVED this burger!!!
1 RED, 1 GREEN (arugula), 1/2 BLUE

1/4 cup Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons maple syrup (or sub honey)
1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
1/2 teaspoon orange zest
1 teaspoons of fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
1 pound lean ground turkey or chicken
2/3 cup of crumbly goat cheese (I used the honey goat cheese from Aldi)
salt and pepper
arugula or mixed greens

For the Citrus Maple Dijon: Whisk together in a small bowl the mustard, maple syrup,
orange juice, lemon and orange zest, lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 24 hours to allow the flavors to
meld. Taste and add more maple if desired.

For the burgers: Preheat the grill to high or an oiled grill pan/cast iron pan to medium
high. Form the meat into four, 4-ounce burgers. Sprinkle the burgers on both sides with
salt and pepper. Grill until cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes on each side. During the last
minutes of cooking, add goat cheese to each burger, cover the grill/pan with foil and let
the cheese soften slightly, about 1 minute. Place cooked burgers on a bed of arugula and
drizzle with the Maple Citrus Dijon. Enjoy!
