4 servings (serving size: 1 sandwich)

The traditional patty melt gets a makeover with ground turkey, but substitute ground chicken or ground sirloin, if you prefer. Pair sandwiches with vegetable chips.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion to pan. Cook 5 minutes or until lightly browned; stir occasionally. Transfer onion to a bowl.

Step 2

Preheat broiler.

Step 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.

Step 4

Place bread slices in a single layer on a baking sheet; broil 2 minutes or until toasted. Spread 1 tablespoon mustard on each bread slice; top each serving with 1 patty. Divide onion mixture evenly among sandwiches.

I am not used to cooking with ground turkey, so I was very pleased at how good this was. I also used the whole egg instead of the egg white. I served it with potato salad and pickles. My family really enjoyed this, so I will be making it again.

This was a very good recipe and the ricotta cheese made the burger very moist. The Dijon mustard added the right amount of flavor necessary where I did not need to add anything else. I will make this again for sure!!!!

First time we'd used ground turkey & we'll fix it again. Actually added jalapenos to the onions for a little spunk & served on halved boullios for a Mexican twist.

The combination of the turkey with the onions was great.. However I felt that the turkey itself had almost no flavor & came out dry. My husband loved them, I liked them... we'll try again & next time I'll have to do a little something to make the patties have more flavor.

Loved these turkey burgers! The ricotta made the burgers nice and moist- just be careful to cook long enough that it's cooked through but not overcooked. Mine had plenty of flavor but I do find a major difference in taste when using a different dijon mustard; pick one with a flavor you love! Perfect with a side salad.

It was a good starter recipe, but needed more flavor.

Needed a bit more flavor, and we're not sure if the ricotta cheese actually helped with texture, but it has potential. We would definitely add salt and pepper into the mix.
