Turkey Burger Recipe with Spinach and Cheese

I used to make turkey burgers with lots of seasonings and I loved it like that, on a bun with cheese and homemade ketchup.

But this recipe is spectacular as is! I ate the leftovers the day after in a salad with spinach and tomatoes. Oh. MY. It was SO good. I didn’t want to share with the little ones, but then I felt guilty. How can I deny them such healthy food?

This is one of those recipes you can make up with you have 10 minutes during the day and have them waiting for dinnertime. Those are my favorite kind of recipes! If you meal prep, you could do it on Sunday before the busy week. These turkey burgers also make great lunches to bring to work.

Start by sautéeing the spinach and onions together in a frying pan with a bit of olive oil. While that is cooking, put the ground turkey in a bowl and add the other ingredients. When the spinach and onion are soft, let sit for 5-10 minutes before you add it to the turkey mixture. Then mix by hand and form into burgers.



You can use this burger mold, which makes it SO much easier and then you don’t get the ground meat all over your hands!

Now, when you use spinach, make sure it’s baby spinach. It makes a HUGE difference. And go for organic if you can. Sometimes I can get it on sale so it’s the same cost as regular, but if not, I just buy regular.

This homemade burger with yogurt sauce sounds fab, and that homemade ketchup is amazing - better than store-bought ones because you know what's in it. Thank you for sharing at Fiesta Friday party! I hope you could visit some of the partygoers - thank you.
