Cheeseburgers get a makeover with ground chicken and gourmet toppings. They're even better served with a cold beer.
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 large shallots, sliced
1 pound ground chicken
1 large garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 romaine lettuce leaves
4 kaiser rolls, split and toasted
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
How to Make It
Heat 1 tbsp. oil in a frying pan. Add shallots and cook, stirring often, until softened and browned, about 4 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.
Meanwhile, combine chicken, garlic, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Form mixture into 4 patties. Add remaining 1 tbsp. oil to same pan and cook patties, turning once, until cooked through, about 5 minutes.
Place a lettuce leaf on bottom half of each bun and top with a patty. Top patties with shallots. Mix mayonnaise with blue cheese, spread on bun tops, and set on patties.
This was a huge disappointment, I wouldn't even waste my time trying to jazz it up. There are so many super delicious turkey and chicken burger recipes out there that are full of flavor and low in fat - two I'd recommend from this site are: Greek-Style Burgers with Feta Aioli, and Spicy Poblano Burgers with Pickled Red Onions and Chipotle Cream. Both recipes adapt nicely to substituting ground turkey breast for the beef. Unless you like totally blah burgers, skip this one!
Did not have shallots so I cooked up about 1/2 c. onions in a pan and added that to the ground chicken mixture with a little more rosemary. Topped bagel thins with horseraddish, turkey bacon, romaine lettuce and tomato. yum.
