I can’t believe it… my son is now a preschool graduate! Yep, my little man is headed to Kindergarten! Of course he has a full summer ahead of him, but Kindergarten in the fall!
We’ve been busy around here, hence the lack of posts. But, I’ve been getting into cooking new recipes more lately. For a while there I was cooking, well, things I’ve cooked before! But now I’ve found some new ones for summer that sound delish, so I’m back in the kitchen using my family as the taste-testers for new recipes.
Here’s a good one! Mix the flavors of Chicken Parmesan, with a good ol’ fashioned burger, and you’re set!
Chicken Parmesan Burgers
adapted from Annie’s Eats
For the burgers:
1 lb. ground chicken
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup bread crumbs
2 tsp. Italian seasoning
3 tbsp. chopped flat leaf parsley
1 clove garlic, minced
1 shallot, finely diced
Salt and pepper
Mozzarella or provolone cheese (sliced or shredded)
Sautéed mushrooms (optional)
4 hamburger buns
In a medium bowl combine all of the ingredients for the burgers. Mix well until thoroughly combined. Form the mixture into 4 patties. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes to allow the flavors to mingle.
Preheat the broiler. Spray the broiler pan with cooking spray. (Alternatively, cook the burgers on an outdoor grill or grill pan.) Broil the burgers for 4-6 minutes on one side, then flip and broil for 4-6 more minutes on the other side until fully browned and cooked through. Remove from the oven, top each burger with pasta sauce and cheese. Place back under the broiler for 30-60 seconds until the cheese is melted. Top with sautéed mushrooms if desired, and serve on toasted hamburger buns.
