Mushroom Blue Cheese Turkey Burgers

These are awesome!!!!  My 8 year old who doesn’t like mushrooms or blue cheese gobbles these right up (no pun intended)!  I found the original recipe at www.allrecipes.com.  A great website that I use quite a lot. Here’s a link to the original.

Here is my own version with a few “tweeks”.

This makes about 12 muffin sized burgers.  You can patty them out and grill or bake them.  If I am baking them, I use my favorite Pampered Chef stoneware muffin pan.

2 lbs of turkey
8 oz of sliced  button or baby bella mushrooms, chopped
1 egg for binding
4 oz crumbled blue cheese
2 tbs soy sauce depending on how salty you want it.  I tone this down a bit and don’t add salt elsewhere.  The cheese brings it’s own salt.

The secret to getting the burgers right is mixing it with your hands, so wash up and dive in! .  If you are using the oven cook at 350 degrees for 15 – 20 minutes.  Grilling should be about the same depending on the heat of your coals. 

These are great even without a bun, which is how we typically eat them (gotta watch those carbs). A little garnish of tomatoe, red onion, even a little avacodo and you are good to go.   A side of sweet potatoe fries is an awesome compliment to this meal, but you’ll have to come back later for that recipe.

Enjoy!
