Chicken Cordon Bleu Burgers!
By: Kecia’s Flavor Breakthrough!
I love a good burger, now a stuffed burger? That is one of my favorites. Taking a big bite and getting an ooey gooey flavorful surprise hidden in the middle is fantastic! I love chicken cordon bleu, but I don’t make it often because it is really heavy. I am always trying to come up with a new burger that is a step above a plain ole burger, too. So I thought this would be a slightly healthier and totally flavorful combination! And topping it off with my friend Linda from Meal Planning Maven’s Creamy Honey Dijon Dressing so good!!
- 1 pound ground chicken (ground turkey would work, too)
- ½ tsp. garlic powder
- 4 pieces of ham, measuring about 2”x2” about a ¼”thick (Deli ham would work, too)
- 4 slices of Swiss cheese, cut in half
- 1 Tbsp. onion, finely minced
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Several spinach leaves
- 4 slices of tomato
- 4 tbsp. Meal Planning Maven’s Creamy Honey Dijon Dressing
- 4 whole wheat or multi grain buns
Preheat grill to medium heat
In a bowl combine the ground chicken and garlic together. Take a quarter of the mixture and form a ball. Using your thumb make an indent, making it large enough to place the stuffing in. Place some of the ham cubes in the indent, now fold a piece of the cheese in half and place in the indent with the ham. Add a bit of the onion.
Now enclose the stuffing with the chicken, carefully sealing in. (You don’t want that cheese to drip out when it melts!) Repeat with all 4 burgers.
Season with the salt and pepper, be careful not over salt, the ham and cheese is already a bit salty. Place on grill. After 5 minutes flip the burger and grill another 5 minutes, flip one more time Place another piece of cheese on top and cook 2 more minutes. Remove from heat.
Open buns and place a burger on each bun, top with some of the spinach and a tomato slice.
Spread a tablespoon of the dressing on the inside of the top of each bun and place on top of the burger.
Cut in half and serve. Yummy!!!!
