Step 1In a large skillet, cook the bacon over moderately high heat until crisp. Drain on paper towels and break each strip in half.
Step 2Sprinkle ground turkey with kosher salt and pepper. Mix gently until well combined.
Step 3Form into four 4-ounce burger patties.
Step 4Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat with olive oil. Add the patties and cook for 4 minutes, until golden brown and firm when pressed.
Step 5Flip the burgers and cook for an additional 3 to 4 minutes or until the meat reaches an internal temperature of 165°F using a meat thermometer. Top with a slice of cheese and let cheese melt for 1 minute.
Step 6Set aside and allow to rest.
Step 7Spread mayonnaise on the cut sides of the buns; set the burgers on the bottoms and top with the bacon and roasted poblano and toppings of your choice.
