Chicken bruschetta burgers

Andreas Trauttmansdorff


  • 500 g ground chicken, or beef

  • 1/4 cup store-bought bruschetta mix, such as Classico

  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan, or asiago

  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced

  • pinch salt

  • pinch pepper


  • Oil grill and heat barbecue to medium. Crumble chicken into a large bowl. Add bruschetta, cheese, onion, salt and pepper. Using your hands or a fork, gently mix together. Shape into 4 burgers, each about 1/2 inch (1 cm) thick.

  • Place burgers on grill. Barbecue, covered, until cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes per side. Place on plates and top with more bruschetta and grated cheese or serve on crusty slices of focaccia, if you wish.

Indoor Sizzle

No barbecue? No worries. Prepare burgers as above, then coat a large frying pan with oil. Set over medium heat. When hot, add burgers. Sauté, uncovered, 6 to 8 minutes per side. If they brown too quickly, reduce heat to medium-low.
