Turkey Cordon Bleu Burgers

Turkey Cordon Bleu Burgers

Serves 6

Black Forest ham is particularly flavorful in these stuffed burgers, which are modeled after traditional chicken cordon bleu. While you're grilling the burgers, season a few halved tomatoes with salt, pepper and olive oil and grill them briefly, cut-side down, until just soft for a juicy side dish. Serve burgers on whole wheat buns, if you like.

  • 2/3 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup 1/4-inch cubes Emmenthaler cheese
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped ham
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup parsley, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground dark meat turkey

In a medium bowl thoroughly combine bread crumbs, cheese, ham, mustard, parsley, onions, salt and pepper. Add turkey and gently bring all the ingredients together with your hands, being careful not to overwork the meat. With dampened hands, form the meat into 6 patties. Place patties on a lined baking sheet, cover loosely with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Light the grill or preheat the broiler. Cook burgers, turning them carefully with a spatula, for 6 minutes per side, or until no longer pink inside. Transfer to plates and serve.
