Blue Cheese Turkey Burgers

I put this recipe together because I had thawed some ground turkey and was looking for something more imaginative than spaghetti with ground turkey in the sauce. It is inspired by Basil Pan Burgers, a recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook, which I've made a lot in the past. I served them with Baked Sweet Potato Fries.

Blue Cheese Turkey Burgers

makes 4 burgers

1 egg, slightly beaten
1/4 c. chopped onion
1/2 c. crumbled blue cheese
2 T. fine dry bread crumbs
2 T. ketchup
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. black pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb. ground turkey

1. In a medium bowl combine egg, onion, blue cheese, bread crumbs, ketchup, salt, pepper, and garlic. Add turkey; mix well. Shape turkey mixture into four 3/4-inch-thick patties.
2. Lightly coat a heavy skillet with cooking spray (or use a heavy nonstick skillet). Preheat skillet over medium-high until hot. Add burgers. Reduce heat to medium and cook, uncovered, until temperature measures 165 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer, flipping burgers once halfway through cooking. If burgers brown too quickly, reduce heat to medium low. Serve on buns with desired toppings
