I don't eat burgers. I don't eat much red meat at all. I love chicken though.These burgers are made with chicken or turkey; your choice. Rachael named them after where she grew up Lake Lasern, located in the Adirondack Mountains. Which isn't far from me. They are like having hot chicken wings in a sandwich. Which Rachael enjoyed in the Adirondacks growing up.
I thought these looked really good. I'd leave out the onions though. And use a milder sauce.
Rachael Rayâ€™sÂ ADIRONDACK RED WING BURGERS
2 tablespoons EVOO - Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 carrot, finely chopped
Â¼ cup finely chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 Â½ pounds ground turkey OR chicken
2 tablespoons finely chopped dill
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons butter
Â¼ cup hot sauce
Â½ cup blue cheese crumbles
4 deli-sliced cheddar cheese
4 sandwich-size English muffins; toasted
Â¼ head iceberg lettuce, shredded
Â¼ cup pickle relish
In small skillet, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of EVOO over medium heat. Add the patties and cook, turning once, until firm, about 12 minutes. Transfer to plate. Add the butter to the skillet to melt. Then stir in the hot sauce. Add the patties back to the skillet, turning to coat each side in sauce. Top each with some of the blue cheese crumbles and a slice of cheddar cheese. Tent with foil, turn off the heat and let stand until the cheese is melted.
Top each muffin with some lettuce, a patty, some relish and a muffin top.
