I've made Kentucky Hot Brown sandwiches for years. I love the delicious combination of turkey, mornay sauce, tomatoes and bacon. I've made open faced versions, the original sandwich, and even sliders. But this year, I decided to try my version of a Kentucky Hot Brown Burger.
You may use ground turkey and form your own burgers, but I used prepackaged Butterball 1/4 lb. each turkey burgers. Make sure you cook the ground turkey until it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees to be safe.
I seasoned the burgers and the fried potato bites with Rimshot Bacon Salt. It definitely added a great smoky bacon flavor.
1 lb. ground turkey, shaped into 4 burgers
1 t. vegetable oil
4 slices Swiss cheese
Sliced tomatoes (I used Roma tomatoes, sliced lengthwise)
Salt and pepper
In a large skillet, over medium heat, add the oil. When it is warmed, add the turkey burgers, sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste and cook 4 - 5 minutes on each side until they reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
Top with Swiss cheese.
Toast buns and top with burgers, sliced tomatoes and bacon.
