Last month, I was contacted by Laughing Cow Cheese stating that they wanted to send me some products to experiment and create recipes with…
Being a HUGE fan of Laughing Cow Cheese, I instantly said yes and eagerly awaited the arrival of my “mystery box” of cheese! When it arrived, I couldn’t wait to break into it and see what flavor I would be working with.
They sent me French Onion flavor, which is one I haven’t cooked with as much as the others. I was excited to jump in and create a few fun recipes with this new flavor, the first of which I’ll share with you today. Laughing Cow Cheese wedges weigh in at just 35-calories per wedge, which makes it completely guilt-free!
I’ve wanted to experiment with caramelized onions for some time and felt like this recipe would be the first way to try out my first batch. And, without further ado, please find my first recipe using the French Onion Laughing Cow cheese. I hope you love it as much as I do!
French Onion Cheese-Stuffed Turkey Burgers
1 onion, thinly sliced
¼ cup fat free beef broth
4 oz. lean ground turkey
1 wedge Laughing Cow Cheese French Onion flavor
80 calorie bun
1. Slice your onions thinly.
2. Prepare a pan with cooking spray and add your onions at medium heat. Generously salt the onions immediately, as the salt will help them to sweat and caramelize.
3. Cook the onions until they start to brown, stirring frequently. If they start to stick to the pan, add the beef broth. Even if they don’t start to stick, add the beef broth. It will cook off quickly.
4. Once onions are beautifully caramelized, remove from the heat and set aside.
5. Place ground turkey in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper. Take half of the turkey and form it into a burger.
6. Slice the Laughing Cow cheese horizontally, and smash half of a wedge into the center of the burger you just made.
7. Add about 1 ½ Tbsp. caramelized onions on top of the cheese. Save the remaining onions to add to dishes you make later this week.
8. Take the remaining raw turkey and cover the cheese/onion mixture, sealing the burger on the edges.
9. Cook your burger on a grill pan, or on a George Foreman grill, seasoning with salt and pepper on both sides prior to cooking. Cook thoroughly until done all the way through.
10. While the burger is cooking, prepare your bun. Spread the remaining wedge of Laughing cow on the bun and add spinach leaves. Note: I would have added tomato slices, if I had them…
11. Remove burger from the stove when done, assemble your burger, and get ready to be amazed.
I paired my burger with oven baked fries and Heinz Balsamic Ketchup. REALLY delicious!
