Elly Says Opa! is one of my favorite cooking blogs. She's always got some great Greek dishes on there but also just wonderful everyday meals for the family.
I found these Chicken Parmesan Burgers on her blog a week or so back and made them the other night and they were so delicious! So delicious I didn't take a picture either!
Easy recipe! Tasty recipe. And per the hubs, the best flavored ground turkey we've ever had.
Thank you Elly!
Chicken Parmesan Burgers
1 lb. ground chicken (I used turkey)
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup plain bread crumbs
2 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/4 cup chopped flatleaf parsley (I used dried basil instead)
1 clove garlic, finely minced or pressed
1 shallot, finely diced (omitted, didn't have on hand)
salt and pepper (just pepper, didn't need more salt with the cheese)
1/2 cup pasta sauce (1 80z. can is more than enough!!)
4 slices mozzarella or provolone (or 1/2 cup shredded) (I used the nice fresh mozzarella cheese)
sauteed mushrooms (optional)(omitted but will try next time)
4 buns (brushed with a little garlic butter, they are even better) (Yes Elly they are!!!)
Lightly mix together all the ingredients for the burgers. Form into 4 patties. I like to make them about 30-40 minutes ahead of time, to let the flavors meld a little bit.
Preheat & spray the broiler with a little oil (or use the grill, or a pan). Broil the burgers for about 4 minutes on the first side, then flip and broil for 3 minutes. Top each chicken burger with 2 Tbsp. pasta sauce and a slice (or about 2T) of cheese. Place back under the broiler for 30-60 seconds, until cheese in melted and burger is cooked through. Top with mushrooms, if desired. Place the buns in the broiler for about 10 seconds, just until toasted.
