Lasagna Burgers

All I need to say about this recipe is....YUMMY!!! If you love lasagna, you will love this burger. You get the flavors of lasagna without feeling like you are eating pasta on a burger. Pair this up with some homemade fries and you have a new favorite meal!
Lasagna Burgers
adapted from Rachael Ray
1 lbs ground turkey
salt and pepper
2 tbsp olive oil, plus more for drizzling
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 (14.5 oz) can Italian crushed tomatoes
1 tbsp dried basil
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp flour
1 cup milk
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
4 hamburger buns

In a large bowl, season the meat with salt and pepper. Form into 4 patties, thinner in the middle for more even cooking. Drizzle with olive oil. In a saucepan, heat 2 tbsp oil over med heat. Add onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes; add the garlic and cook 2 minutes more, then stir in the tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. Lower the heat and simmer 5 minutes; stir in the basil.
In a large skillet, heat a drizzle of oil over med-high heat. Add patties and cook, turning once, about 7-8 minutes.
While patties are cooking, in a small saucepan, melt the butter over med heat. Whisk in the flour for 1 minute, then whisk in the milk. Season with salt and pepper and the nutmeg, then cook until thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the ricotta and the parmesan.
Spoon some of the red sauce on the bottom bun, then top with the patties. Dollop the cheese sauce on the patties and set roll tops in place.

Serves 4
