Chicken Parmesan Burgers

As I was saying not too long ago, Hubby and I really miss grilling out. It’s just such a classic summertime event. And, you can prepare quick and easy dinners that are healthy and delicious. Oh grilling, how I miss you…


Since we can’t grill, we like to recreate grill-like flavors inside. We make a lot of burgers and broil them. We always make them with chicken or turkey and in fact I don’t think we’ve ever bought ground beef since moving to Boston. With so many fun ways to dress up a poultry burger, who needs beef?


This recipe comes from Elly Says Opa and does not dissappoint. I have to admit that I love caramelized onions and sauteed mushrooms, so it is quite possible that the toppings helped my opinion of these burgers. The melted cheese and chunky roasted garlic tomato sauce can’t hurt either. I cooked these up one night and we had dinner for two nights since the recipe make 4 burgers.

    This sounds awesome! The pictures are wonderful as well. I can’t for the life of me figure out how to get good burger pictures. I love the pizza sauce on this! Thanks!

    That’s a good point, there isn’t actually Parmesan in it… You could use parm instead of provolone cheese.
