Turkey Cordon Bleu Burgers


turkey-cordon-bleu-burgers

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.

Verdict:

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.

  • 8 Turkey burgers (homemade or frozen)

Directions:

  1. Cook turkey burgers according to package directions.

  3. The Dijon mustard has a strong flavor as well, which might have added to the saltiness somewhat. It still sounds good, though, lol.

      Thank you! Didn’t think of the saltiness maybe coming from the mustard.

  4. Maybe it wasn’t but the horseradishy (is that a word, lol) taste probably intesified it a little.

  5. This is a great idea thought for store-bought burgers, even if they were a bit salty. That melting cheese is making my mouth water!
