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 lb ground chicken (fresh ground chicken or turkey meat)
- 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, finely shredded
- 1⁄3 small onion, chopped (microwave with a dash of olive oil)
- 1 egg, beaten
- 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1⁄2 cup dry Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
- Take the 1/3 of small onion chopped & put in microwave safe bowl with a dash of olive oil & microwave for 1 minute.
- Combine onion with all remaining ingredients in large bowl then shape into 6 patties.
- 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!
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.
This recipe is easy & delicious! I made these thin and pan fried them using the extra bread crumbs as a coating, as suggested. I served them as is with sauteed cabbage, roasted potatoes and carrots. There's only two of us, so it made a ton. Tonight I'm using the leftovers in a chicken parmigiana recipe. I'm topping with a little marinara and mozzarella cheese and serving over pasta & marinara. This recipe is definitely a keeper.
