Think turkey burgers are dry and tasteless? Not ours! The addition of minced portobello mushrooms give these lean burgers a juicy, meaty flavor.

Ingredients

portobello mushroom(s)

1 large, stem removed, chopped

uncooked shallot(s)

2 small, chopped

reduced calorie mayonnaise

1 Tbsp

rosemary

2 tsp, fresh, minced

kosher salt

¾ tsp

Worcestershire sauce

½ tsp

uncooked 93% lean ground turkey

1 pound(s)

Gruyère cheese

½ oz, shredded (about 2 Tbsp)

low fat cream cheese

2 tsp

Dijon mustard

½ tsp

cooking spray

2 spray(s)

light English muffin

4 item(s), toasted

reduced-fat cooked crisp bacon

4 slice(s)

fresh tomato(es)

4 slice(s)

lettuce

4 piece(s)

Instructions

  1. In the bowl of a food processor, combine mushroom, shallots, mayonnaise, rosemary, salt and Worcestershire sauce; pulse until finely minced. (If you don't have a food processor, finely chop mushroom and shallots with a sharp knife before combining with other ingredients).
  2. Spoon mushroom mixture into a mixing bowl and add turkey; gently combine with your hands. Shape turkey mixture into four 3 1/2-inch burgers; cover and refrigerate until ready to grill.
  3. Meanwhile, combine Gruyère, cream cheese and mustard in a small bowl; set aside.
  4. Off heat, coat a grill pan or outdoor grill with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Cook burgers, flipping once, until cooked all the way through, about 10 to 12 minutes.
  5. Serve each burger on an English muffin topped with 2 teaspoons cheese spread, 1 slice bacon, 1 slice tomato and 1 piece lettuce. Yields 1 burger per serving.

Notes

The patties can be made up to 2 days before cooking.
