Mushroom & Swiss Patty Melt

You could use hamburger for this one too, but the turkey was really good.  Or, skip the peas and put the patty melt on a bun with a side of sweet potato fries or onion rings.  I’m not a big mushroom fan, so I chopped the mushrooms a bit smaller.  I was surprised at how quick and easy this was and how good it tasted. To make it even healthier, next time I will cook the patties on the George Foreman and just saute the onions & mushrooms.


  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 small onion
  • 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 2 tbsp shredded swiss
  • 1/4 cup frozen green peas
  • salt & pepper
Form several patties with the ground turkey.  Lightly season each patty with salt & pepper.  Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat; add patties and cook until golden brown on the first side (about 3-4 minutes).  Flip patty, move to one side of skillet.  Add onions, mushrooms, salt & pepper to cleared side of skillet and cook until softened and golden brown, about 5 minutes.  Add peas and cook for 1 minute more, checking to ensure patty is cooked through.  Sprinkle patty with cheese and transfer to a plate.  Spoon hot mushroom mixture on top and serve.
