As part of Patriots Lifestyle's brand new recipe section, we're asking fans everywhere to share their best game day foods. Sheryl Champagne from Chicopee, Mass., sent us her recipe for a healthier burger, using chicken and veggies rather than traditional ground beef. Since she started making these chicken burgers years ago, they've become a firm family favorite.
CHICKEN BURGER RECIPE
Makes approximately 8 servings
2 lbs. ground chicken
1 package frozen chopped spinach (drain and squeeze excess water)
1 red pepper, diced
4 oz. mushrooms, diced
2 scallions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp. Cajun seasoning
2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend, or cheese of your choice
Burger buns (optional)
Mix all ingredients together until well blended. Form into regular-size patties or sliders.
Grill on medium heat for 5 to 7 minutes (regular size patties) on each side. These burgers can also be broiled or baked.
If desired, serve with salsa (Sheryl recommends peach mango) on a lightly toasted bun.
