Chicken Cordon Bleu Burgers
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Grab a bowl and add your pound Gold'n Plump Ground Chicken, 1 egg, 1/4 cup of Ian's whole wheat panko, italian seasoning and pepper. We're going to pretend I'm not still using Christmas bowls in February. Who am I kidding, I use it year round.
Combine until it turns your stomach from the appearance then divide into 4 portions, just over 4 oz per ball. Ugh, I can barely look at them! *retch* (But hang with me)
Time to grab some Land O' Frost deli ham and Trader Joe's Jarlsburg lite swiss cheese.
Divide each chicken ball in half and make 2 patties per ball. Add a folded piece of ham and half a slice of cheese folded over to the middle of the patty.
Take the naked patty and cover the ham and cheese making sure to seal it on all sides so the cheese doesn't ooze out while cooking. They'll look like this
*retch* (Am I selling you on it yet?)
Grab a skillet and sear each side.
Then transfer the patties to an oven safe dish and bake for 7-10 minutes or until done. When you cut into it, it should look like this
We had ours on a whole wheat bun with spinach. (Oh and some garlic basil mashed potatoes)
We didn't use a condiment on it because it didn't need it but it would be awesome with BBQ sauce or even a good marinara which is how we're having it tonight. There's nothing like the Mr raving about a recipe as he's stringing gooey cheese from his mouth. *grin*
