Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 cup vertically sliced Vidalia or other sweet onion
  • 1/4 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 pound ground turkey breast

  • Cooking spray
  • 4 (1-ounce) slices reduced-fat Swiss cheese
  • 4 slices light rye bread
  • 1/4 cup country-style Dijon mustard

Preparation

  2. Preheat broiler.
  3. Combine cheese and next 4 ingredients (through egg white). Divide turkey mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty. Return pan to medium heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add patties to pan; cook 4 minutes or until brown. Turn patties over; cook 1 minute. Top each patty with 1 cheese slice; cook 3 minutes or until cheese melts and patties are done.
