Servings: 4 Prep 15 mins Cook 30 mins


  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 large Vidalia onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 package (20.8 ounces) ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • 4 whole-grain white hamburger buns
  • 4 romaine lettuce leaves

Make It

1. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook for 15 minutes or until well browned; set aside.

2. In a large bowl, combine turkey, ricotta, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, salt and pepper. Stir until well combined. Form into 4 equal-size patties and flatten.

3. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook burgers about 5 minutes per side, then partially cover, reduce heat to medium and cook another 5 minutes or until instant-read thermometer registers 160 degrees F.

4. While burgers are cooking, stir together blue cheese and mayonnaise in a small bowl. Place burgers on buns and top each with some of the onions, 1 tablespoon blue cheese sauce and a lettuce leaf. Makes 4 servings.
