These are very easy chicken & cheese burger patties. You can use either ground chicken or turkey meat. These grill up great outdoors on the BBQ or inside on the indoor grill. My husband and I love serving these on a bun coated with BBQ sauce & a handful of "French's" fried onions and we top them with a slice of american cheese too - they are perfect that way. PS: These are super to freeze, I make a fresh batch of either chicken or turkey & always freeze about 6 or so patties. I wrap them individually in Saran Wrap, then put all 6 either in a tupperware container or a large freezer zip-loc bag as in photo.

  1. Take the 1/3 of small onion chopped & put in microwave safe bowl with a dash of olive oil & microwave for 1 minute.
  2. Combine onion with all remaining ingredients in large bowl then shape into 6 patties.
  3. Grill on BBQ or pan fry with 1 tablespoon vegetable oil (if you panfry, coat burger patties individually in additionaly 1/2 cup breadcrumbs then fry they are extra crispy & tasty :-) ) You could also bake these in oven.

This recipe was so incredibly delicious that my boyfriend and I had to create an account and write a review. We halved the recipe (3 patties) and followed it for the most part, but made a few changes. We added 2 slices of bacon and a giant clove of garlic. We panfried without adding extra breadcrumbs and cooked on low-med about 8-9 minutes each side. They were so tasty we didn't even use buns! Highly, highly recommend thank you!

I just made these without cheese in them and they are still yummy! I ground my own chicken in food processor from boneless, skinless chicken breast. This is a keeper for me. Will have to try it with ground turkey next.

These burgers were good. Cooked in a stove top grill pan. Cut the 3T of mayo to 2T and they came out very moist, juicy. We had leftover bacon strips from breakfast and laid them on top. Gave only 3 stars, for recipe "as is." With bacon on top, add a star. Bacon makes everything better, although your arteries may say otherwise.
