Turkey Spinach Burgers
I still remember the first time I suggested using ground turkey over ground beef for burgers…I got the most disapproving look from my husband! He’s usually pretty willing to eat whatever I suggest and has been okay with my turkey spinach meatballs but just wasn’t fond of the idea of a burger being made out of turkey…until now!
These burgers turned out so juicy and when topped with a little mashed avocado needed nothing else! We passed on the bun, served with some grilled veggies and brown rice – yummy!
Turkey Spinach Burgers – yields 10 burgers
2.5 pounds ground lean turkey
3/4 cup salsa
1 TBS minced garlic
3 cups chopped spinach
1/2 cup chopped onion
Mix all ingredients and form into patties. I prefer to make mine 4oz or 1/4 pound each. With this you should get around 10 burgers. Grill 4-5 minutes per side (checking to make sure no pink inside!)
Serve with your favorite grilled veggies and sides!
We are HUGE fans of making in bulk and freezing the leftovers for a future meal. We ended up with enough for our dinner and 2 more meals – SCORE!
