Rosemary Chicken Burgers w/Caramelized Onions and Gorgonzola

I’m embarrassed about how long it’s been since my last post!  It’s an understatement to say that life has gotten in the way, just a bit.  My hubby’s online skateboarding business has taken off and the next obvious step for us to take was buying our own commercial building.  Needless to say, but between scouting out real estate, negotiating with brokers, juggling inspections and sweating bullets over a scary down payment, it’s been a little exhausting.  Well, the transaction will be final on Tuesday and the keys will be ours!  Between the stress and the late night life talks, you can bet good food was the one thing that held things together over the last month.

I have my mom to thank for this one and she has Sunset magazine to thank.  The recipe has morphed a little each time it changed hands and this is my version.  These chicken burgers are healthier than most, and suprisingly moist too.  Between the rosemary speckled throughout the patties, juicy caramlized onions and a pungent gorgonzola sauce balanced by spicy arugula, this burger is a flavor explosion.  I like to make small patties on dinner-roll style buns since I’ve never been one to finish a normal sized burger.  Plus, if you end up eating two you won’t feel so bad about it!  Please give these a try, you won’t be disappointed.

Rosemary Chicken Burgers with Caramelized Onions and Gorgonzola

Makes 4 Small Burgers

1 lb ground chicken
2 tbsp minced fresh rosemary
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper
4 kaiser rolls
handful of arugula or spinach leaves

2 large shallots, sliced thin
2 tbsp olive oil
pinch of salt
pinch of sugar
1 tsp balsamic vinegar

1/4 cup light mayonnaise
1/4 crumbled gorgonzola cheese

Turn your grill onto medium-high heat.

In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine the ground chicken, rosemary, garlic, salt and pepper and stir to combine well.  Form into 4 equal patties and let those sit while you get the other ingredients ready.

In a medium saute pan or frying pan over medium-low heat, add the olive oil and the onion along with the pinch of salt and sugar.  Saute for about 30 minutes or until a light golden brown.  Once brown, add in the balsamic vinegar (optional) and keep warm on low heat until everything else is ready.

Place the chicken burger patties on the bbq and grill for about 6-8 minutes on both sides or until cooked through and there’s no more pink.  Toast the buns on the grill as well.

Mix together the gorgonzola and mayonnaise in a small bow.

Assemble the burgers!  I take the toasted bun, smear some of the gorgonzola sauce and top with the arugula, chicken burger and balsamic caramelized onions.
