spinach turkey burgers

Man I dig turkey burgers, a lot. I mean in my hey day I was able to down beef hamburgers like there was no tomorrow, but I’ve always had a sweet spot for turkey burgers. I remember growing up my mom buying the Jenni-O ground turkey and chopping it into those cute little squares, served up with beans, cottage cheese and other stuff. It’s like Thanksgiving dinner, only in the form of a hamburger.

When I make my spinach turkey burgers today, I like to add in a variety of veggie goodness to make the tastes something special. Of course this requires a hamburger press, as leaving them as squares probably won’t work. I like to toss in a handful of spinach, green onions, garlic and other spices to really give these spinach turkey burgers a flavorful taste.

Ground turkey is lower in fat than traditional ground beef, and a source of omega-3 that can help with symptoms of PCOS. In my opinion, these spinach turkey burgers stand up tall to traditional hamburgers, and I’d pick any day of the week over a Big Mac 🙂
