Turkey Burger with Portabellos and Blue Cheese

it’s impossible to go all winter without grilling.  there’s just something about it that is irresistible. so when you grill in the winter you want to go all out, and this recipe is perfect. a juicy turkey burger topped with sauted portobello mushrooms, slathered in creamy blue cheese dressing all on a toasted kaiser roll. so find your spatula and get to it…

Turkey Burger with Portobellos and Blue Cheese
4 tbs olive oil
1/2 lb ground turkey
1 portabello mushroom, sliced
3 tbs blue cheese dressing
1 tbs chives, chopped
1 kaiser roll, toasted
salt and pepper

heat two saute pans with oil over medium heat. shape the ground turkey into a patty and season with salt and  pepper to taste.  once the pans are hot place the mushrooms in one and the burger in the other.  the mushrooms need to cook for a couple minutes before you season.  let the burger cook for 5 minutes on each side, or until done.  while the burger is cooking mix the chives into the blue cheese.  now time to assemble. place the patty on the bun, top with mushrooms, and spread the top of the bun with the dressing before placing on top.


  • if you don’t have enough blue cheese dressing, you can stretch it by adding sour cream.
  • if you don’t have chives, try shallots because you’re going for a subtle onion flavor.
  • i made this recipe from things i had in my refrigerator.  i challenge you to do the same and see what types of recipes you can come up.
