Are you sick of burgers yet? I can’t guarantee this will be the last one! It is after all National Hamburger Month!! Turkey burgers count as hamburgers right? My friend at work shared this recipe with me the other day and I knew I needed to make it stat. Couldn’t have been better timing because just the day or two before I had thawed ground turkey from our freezer (I was originally thinking of making my Healthy Sweet Potato Shepherd’s Pie) with it. I’m so glad I made the switch. Best part was I had all of the ingredients on hand.
Talk about JUICY and CHEESY! These turkey burgers were so incredibly delicious and super easy. Pretty much I’m all over any reason I can fire up the grill. I used to make my husband heat the grill for me, but after burger week I’ve become a pro. Watch out world – I know how to operate our own BBQ grill! This grilling season is going to be FUN! If you want a change from red meat, I highly suggest making these Swiss Turkey Burgers not only do they taste delicious, they smell equally wonderful. You’ll have your neighbors knocking on your door in no time.
Swiss Turkey Burger
The Swiss Turkey Burger is the most amazing ground turkey burger with shredded swiss cheese throughout grilled to perfection! Next time you're grilling, make these!
- 1 lb. lean ground turkey
- 6 oz. swiss cheese grated
- 1 egg white
- 1 tbsp. spicy brown mustard
- 1/2 c. bread crumbs
- 1 tbsp. minced onions
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. pepper
Spray a sheet of aluminum foil with cooking spray; set aside.
Mix together all ingredients until everything is fully incorporated.
Using 1/2 c. measuring cup divide ground turkey mixture in to eight patties.
Heat grill to medium-high heat. Place patties on prepared aluminum foil. Grill patties until done (approx. 6-8 minutes per side).
If you don't have a grill you can also cook the patties on the stovetop. Heat large frying pan on medium-high heat. Spray with cooking spray and cook 6-8 minutes per side.
