Cheesy Mushroom Turkey Burgers – Recipe!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Burgers are a food that never go out of style because you can change them up to your liking and these Cheesy Mushroom Turkey Burgers are all about delicious fun.  They’re made in a skillet on the stove top in a matter of minutes, and taste better than anything you’ll find at your local drive-thru or quick service restaurant — that’s for sure.

It all starts with good ground turkey, 20% dark meat, if you can find it.  Pat the patties together and salt and pepper on both sides.  Sauté mushrooms in the skillet first, then leave whatever butter remnants are left to cook the turkey patties.  Pile the mushrooms high on top of each burger – and I mean as many as will fit.  Then, place a slice of good swiss cheese on top and put a lid on the pan.  Steam until the cheese is oozing down the sides of the patty, and the center of the burger is cooked through.

They might look a bit like a science experiment before you place them on a mayonnaise slathered bun with deep green baby spinach leaves bellowing out below.  Then, take a bite – a few mushrooms may escape along with some juices from the burger, but that’s what napkins are for.

To Prepare:

  1. Divide turkey into four portions.  Pat into patties with a dent in center and place on a plate.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper on both sides.  Toast buns in oven for 5 minutes, remove.
  2. In a large iron skillet, add butter and place over medium heat.  Add mushrooms and onions, sauté for 2 minutes.  Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.  Continue to cook for 3 minutes, or until soft tender.  Remove from skillet and place in bowl.
  3. Add turkey patties to skillet and cook for 4 minutes.  Flip and spoon sauteed mushrooms and 1 slice of swiss on top.  Repeat for each patty.
  4. Cover with lid and let cook for 3 minutes.  Remove lid and continue to cook for another 1-2 minutes, or until cheese barely touches pan and becomes slightly crispy.
  5. Spread each half bun with mayonnaise and mustard.  Top one side with cheesy mushroom patty and other side with spinach.  Bring together in harmony.  Enjoy!
