National Hamburger Day

Did you know this popular food item had it's own day? There really is a day for everything, lol.

In honour of national Hamburger Day, I thought I'd share a recipe my family and I tried this week. It was SO good! I mean look at it!!!

I hope you enjoy as much as we did! *NOTE: We didn't add the mushrooms and they were still super yummy!

Bacon and Cheese Turkey Burgers


  • 1 large, stem removed chopped Portobello Mushroom(s)

  • 2 small, chopped uncooked shallot(s)

  • 1 Tbsp reduced calorie mayonnaise

  • 2 tsp, fresh, minced rosemary

  • ¾ tsp kosher salt

  • ½ tsp Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 pound(s) uncooked 93% lean ground turkey

  • ½ oz, shredded (about 2 Tbsp) Gruyère cheese

  • 2 tsp low fat cream cheese

  • ½ tsp Dijon mustard

  • 2 spray(s) cooking spray

  • 4 item(s), toasted light English muffin

  • 4 slice(s) reduced-fat cooked crisp bacon

  • 4 slice(s) fresh tomato(es)

  • 4 piece(s) lettuce


  1. In the bowl of a food processor, combine mushroom, shallots, mayonnaise, rosemary, salt and Worcestershire sauce; pulse until finely minced.

  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.
