Mushroom-Swiss Turkey Burgers With Balsamic Mayo
My husband loves burgers, but in an effort to eat a little healthier I have decided to start sneaking turkey into his burgers. Joe really liked this burger mainly because the ricotta cheese kept the turkey very moist. In my opinion this turkey burger was every bit as good (if not better) than the traditional beef burger.
4 hamburger buns, lightly toasted
1 lb ground turkey
1/2 small onion finely chopped
1/4 C ricotta cheese
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
salt & pepper
8 oz mushrooms
4 slices swiss cheese
1/2 cup mayo
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
In a mixing bowl combine Turkey, Worcestershire sauce, ricotta, and salt & pepper. Divide meat mixture into four even portions. Form patties and set aside. In a medium saucepan coated with olive oil sauté mushrooms until tender. Season with salt & pepper to taste. Meanwhile, in a grill pan grill burgers approximately 3-4 minutes per side. When burgers are almost cooked top with mushroom mixture and 1 slice of swiss. Allow cheese to melt and transfer to bottom half of a toasted bun. Top opposite side with a layer balsamic mayo, lettuce, tomato, and serve.
To make Balsamic mayo combine 1/2 c. mayonnaise and 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar.
