Serves 4
  • 1 (16 oz.) jar Harmons red bell peppers in oil
  • 32 oz. ground chicken or turkey
  • 4 oz. Gruyere cheese, cut into 1/4" cubes
  • 4 green onions, white and green parts, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Olive oil
  • 4 Harmons hamburger buns
  • Mayonnaise
  • Butter lettuce
  • 1 ripe avocado, cut into slices

Mince 2 red bell peppers and reserve remaining peppers for another use.

In a large bowl, add peppers, chicken, cheese, green onions, garlic, egg, and panko. Season with salt and pepper and, using gloves or a large spoon or spatula, mix ingredients until blended. Let sit for 10 minutes at room temperature. Form into 4 flat patties.

Warm a grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. If using a grill pan, add oil. Cook chicken burgers until browned on first side, about 10 minutes. Flip, reduce heat to medium, and cook other side until browned, 12-15 minutes or until an internal thermometer inserted into burger reads 165°. Transfer burgers to a clean plate to rest for 5-10 minutes.

Add buns to pan and cook until toasted to desired doneness.

Serve chicken burgers on buns with mayonnaise, lettuce, and avocado, if using.
