  1. Coat grill rack with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat grill to medium (300°F to 350°F). In a large bowl combine egg, breadcrumbs and 1/4 cup of the basil. Add turkey, and salt and pepper to taste; mix well. Form into 4 patties.
  2. Place patties on grill. Grill, covered, 5 minutes per side or until an instant-read thermometer registers 165°F. During the last 2 minutes of grilling, top each patty with 1 cheese slice; grill just until melted.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine tomatoes, garlic, oil, remaining 2 tablespoons basil, and salt and pepper to taste; set aside.
  4. Place rolls, cut side down, on grill. Grill until lightly toasted. Place burgers in rolls, top with tomato mixture and arugula, and serve.
