When I was a kid, my mom made two wonderful chicken dishes I loved. She made Chicken Florentine and Chicken Cordon Bleu. When she’d ask what I wanted for dinner on my birthday each year, it was always one of these two dishes. I have never been able to recreate either of these recipes exactly as she made them. But I remember the flavors so well.
As you may have noticed, we are really enjoying using our food grinder to make all types of burgers. It occurred to me that I could take the flavors of the Chicken Cordon Bleu my mom made so well and turn it into a delicious burger! These burgers could be made with chicken or turkey.
Chicken Cordon Bleu Burgers
2 lbs ground chicken (or turkey)
8 oz diced pancetta
1/2 grated parmesan
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tbsp herbs de provence
1. Combine all the ingredients and refrigerate for 6 hours.
2. Shape into patties and cook. We grilled.
Pretty simple recipe. The zucchini I served with the burgers was tossed in olive oil and parmesan and roasted for about 20 minutes at 400 degrees. It was great!
I’m sure before the summer is over, I’ll have a few more burger recipes for you. Try this out and let me know what you think! Enjoy!
