A Rachael Ray recipe I tried last night. Really good! Onion and mushroom sauce was to die for. Would be great with steaks too.

Wonderful burger patties with a gourmet flavor and presentation. The "smothering" of the onions and mushrooms was a great technique to bring out the full flavor. Also the addition of the swiss cheese cubes to the turkey patties ia a great way to keep the turkey from getting too dry while cooking. Instead of serving this on a bun, I served it over rice to soak up all the great sauce.
