Put ground turkey in a glass bowl.  Add the thyme, shallot, crushed garlic, kosher salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes.  Incorporate the raspberry vinaigrette, breadcrumbs, and goat cheese and mix together gently with a fork.  Form burgers into four patties and set aside.

Heat two tablespoons of olive oil into a skillet.  Put burgers into skillet and cook for 5 minutes on the first side over medium heat.  Flip the burgers and cook for 5 more minutes. Internal temperature will be 165 degrees when your burgers are done.
