Easy Chicken and Cheese Burger Patties (Ground Chicken or Turkey

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by BlondieItaliana

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.

Great starting point recipe. I doubled it by adding a pound of chicken sausage, skin removed. I then added powdered sage, smoked black pepper and dried Italian herbs and an extra egg. I kept mayo and everything else at the recipe proportions without doubling them. Favor is wonderful and overall this is a nice inexpensive change. *One thing to note for frying them: once you turn them over once, smash them down or the inside might not be cooked thoroughly. In my newness to this recipe I didn't do it for the first batch and had to put it back on for a few minutes.
