Different Twist on a Burger

This weather is amazing! It already has me thinking about grilling, going to the pool, and catching fireflies with the kids. Over the weekend we decided to try a different twist on a burger.
My son, William, is allergic to beef. I searched on Pinterest and found an interesting recipe for BBQ chicken burgers. I used dairy-free cheese on his burger, but the rest of the family’s burgers stayed true to this recipe. We paired it with asparagus on the grill and fresh strawberries. It was a hit with all four of us!
BBQ Chicken Burgers
makes 4 burgers
1 pound ground chicken breast
1/4 cup finely grated sharp cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup BBQ sauce – use homemade or your favorite!
4 whole wheat buns
1 onion, sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
BBQ sauce for topping
Gouda cheese for topping
  1. In a large bowl, combine chicken, BBQ sauce, paprika, onion and garlic powder, salt, pepper and cheddar cheese.
  2.  Mix until just combined, then form 4 patties. Preheat the grill or a skillet and cook the burgers until fully cooked through.
  3. While burgers are cooking, heat a skillet on medium heat and add olive oil. Add sliced onions with a pinch of salt and saute until caramelized, about 10 minutes.
  4. When burgers are ready, top with gouda (or more cheddar), onions, BBQ sauce and fresh romaine. I also toast the buns!
