Swiss and Onion Turkey Burgers

Yield 3 burgers


  • 3 Sweet Onion Seasoned Butterball Turkey Burgers (each box comes with 6 burgers split into 2 packages of 3 burgers each)
  • 3 slices swiss cheese
  • 1 large walla walla/sweet onion, sliced 1/4-inch thin
  • 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 hamburger buns


  1. In a large non-stick skillet, heat oil & add onion. Cook on medium-low heat for 10 minutes. Season with a little salt, stir & continue cooking, uncovered, for another 20 minutes (30 minutes total), stirring every five to ten minutes. You will want to caramelize the onions LOW & SLOW. If they look dry at all, add a Tablespoon or two of water occasionally. If the onions start to stick to your pan, add a little more olive oil. Keep warm.
  2. Cook turkey burgers according to the directions on the package: Preheat grill to medium heat. Lightly spray or brush both sides of FROZEN turkey burgers with oil and place on grill, about 4" above heat. Grill burgers 8 minutes on one side; turn and grill on the other side for 7 minutes or until center of burger reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. Top warm burgers with one slice of swiss cheese and a scoop of warm caramelized onions. Place on a toasted hamburger bun. Enjoy!
