♥Here's Lookin' at You Turkey Patty Melt♥

 Click photo to print
Anytime anyone would say the words ground turkey to me my nose would curl, and not in the nicest way, either But one bite of this open-faced sandwich and I was convinced that I had bit into one of the best turkey sandwiches - ever! These are great to make for a crowd - so easy but so pretty, too. I've also used exactly the same idea using ground round. If you do make the beef, be sure you use the ground round. Other cuts of meat are just too greasy. Have fun!


1 teaspoon olive oil
1 cup vertically sliced Vidalia or other sweet onion
1/4 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 pound ground turkey breast
1 large egg
cooking spray
4 (1-ounce) slices Swiss cheese
4 slices rye bread
1/4 cup country-style Dijon mustard


Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion to pan. Cook 5 minutes or until lightly browned; stir occasionally. Transfer onion to a bowl.

Preheat broiler.

Combine cheese and next 4 ingredients (through egg). Divide turkey mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty. Return pan to medium heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add patties to pan; cook 4 minutes or until brown. Turn patties over; cook 1 minute. Top each patty with 1 cheese slice; cook 3 minutes or until cheese melts and patties are done.

Place bread slices in a single layer on a baking sheet; broil 2 minutes or until toasted. Spread 1 tablespoon mustard on each bread slice; top each serving with 1 patty. Divide onion mixture evenly among sandwiches.
