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 is the only way we eat our asparagus as well. Do people still boil asparagus? Seriously, it’s kind of a waste that way…
    Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best to share. 🙂

    One of my all time faves. Roasted anything, actually, but asparagus gets so crispy and flavorful!

    We love to grill asparagus that has been rubbed with olive oil and sea salt–so good! 🙂

    p.s asparagus season is one of the highlights of our year to hehe. So many fantastic things you can do with it! Have you tried roasting it in orange juice and silvered almonds? Devine.

    I can’t remember if I’ve ever had roasted asparagus – roasted broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts definitely but roasted asparagus could be a new one. Sounds awesome! 🙂

    We made this last night with grilled pork chops and homemade mac and cheese. I tossed in the olive oil, garlic salt, and pepper and then probably ate 1/4 of them cold while I was waiting for the oven to heat up. Hubby and I each took a serving for our plates after they cooked and then stood in the kitchen eating the rest off the baking sheet before we had dinner! So good and so easy for our favorite veggie!
