There are nights where dinners need to be super simple. My family loves burgers but I don’t tend to make them very often. When we were scrambling the other night for dinner I remembered a package of Jenny O Turkey burgers that I had picked up on sale awhile back. I wanted to try them to see how they were and they were very inexpensive.
Of course if I am serving a burger it is NOT going to be a plain burger! We had Swiss cheese, Tavern Ham and Dijon mustard in our refrigerator so Turkey Cordon Bleu Burgers were on the menu.
Though I loved the idea of the Jenny-O Burgers on a busy night they were a little bit too salty for my taste. We tried the traditional seasoned burgers. I add very little salt to foods. Next time we make these I will just make my own turkey burgers.
But, the rest of my family liked their burgers. They were something just a little bit different and special than a plain hamburger. I served this with roasted garlic potatoes and brown beans.
Turkey Cordon Bleu Burgers
- 8 Turkey burgers (homemade or frozen)
- 8 slices of Tavern or Virginia Baked Ham
- 8 slices Swiss cheese
- 8 sourdough rolls
- butter, softened
- Dijon mustard
- Cook turkey burgers according to package directions.
- Once burgers are done spread the cut side of the rolls with butter before toasting the rolls in the oven at 350 degrees until browned. Spread rolls with Dijon mustard
- Preheat broiler. Place burgers on a baking sheet. Layer one slice of ham and Swiss cheese on burgers with cheese on top. Place burgers under broiler for 1-2 minutes until cheese melts and starts to brown. Watch carefully or they will go from brown to burnt very quickly.
- Remove pan from oven. Place burgers on rolls and serve hot.
