Chicken Cordon Bleu Burgers

It’s always fun to update a retro recipe. I can’t actually remember the last time I had chicken cordon bleu, which you probably know is a boneless chicken breast rolled around ham or prosciutto and Swiss or bleu cheese and then coated in bread crumbs. But, I was recently brainstorming stuffed burger recipe ideas, and for some reason chicken cordon bleu popped in my head.

I’m glad it did because these chicken cordon blue burgers were scrumptious! I filled ground chicken patties with bacon and gruyere cheese and then covered them in panko for some crunch and melted a little more gruyere on top because doubling the cheese is obviously always a good idea. I had a little trouble finding ground chicken but finally got my hands on some at Whole Foods. The search was worth it though. We inhaled these burgers!

Ingredients:
6 slices applewood bacon, chopped
2 pounds ground chicken
2/3 cup grated yellow onion
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 cup shredded gruyere cheese, divided
1 cup panko
6 hamburger buns, split and toasted

Directions:
Heat oven to 350°F. Place bacon in a medium nonstick skillet and sauté for 6 to 8 minutes over medium heat or until crispy; drain on paper towels. Place ground chicken, grated onion, garlic, and salt in a large bowl and gently mix all the ingredients together with your hands; form 12 burgers that are slightly larger than the buns. Place 6 patties on a large greased cookie sheet and evenly sprinkle bacon and 1 cup shredded gruyere cheese in the centers of the 6 patties. Place the other 6 patties on top to form 6 stuffed burgers. Evenly coat the top and sides of the burgers with panko. Bake at 350°F for 18 to 22 minutes or until cooked through and no longer pink in the center. Heat oven broiler, evenly sprinkle remaining 1 cup gruyere cheese on top of each burger, and broil for 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese is melted. Place burgers on buns and serve. Makes 6 burgers.

Salmon Sandwiches with Avocado, Bacon, and Tomato

Why is it that I can remember every single morsel of food from a great restaurant that I visited 5-10 years ago, but can’t for the life of me remember to bring my wallet/cell phone/lunch/book to work? We have a wonderful bread store right across the street from us,...

Pulled Pork Sandwiches on Toasted Garlic Buns

Ever since I went to Sweet Cheeks and was disappointed that the “Texas toast” my pulled pork sandwich was served on was simply white sandwich bread, I’ve been dreaming about pulled pork piled high between pieces of garlic bread. So, I recently headed to our local meat...
