My husband and I whipped up these grilled turkey-spinach burgers a few days ago when it was practically spring-like in Dallas. I added every herb growing in our garden along with spinach to make them extra aromatic and healthy.
Ingredients (serves 6-8)
- 2 pounds ground turkey breast
- chopped herbs of your choice (1-2 tablespoons of each)
- 1 egg to mix with meat; extra eggs to top
- 1/4 cup chopped spinach
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp ground pepper
- cayenne to taste
Mix an egg into your ground turkey to bind everything together. Add salt, pepper and cayenne.
Mix in chopped herbs. I didn’t really measure but once I chopped everything up I had a little less than a cup.
I meant to add my spinach with the herbs but I forgot so in it goes. I am a big believer in sneaking veggies into ground meat…
John grilled our burgers on his Big Green Egg. He’s does amazing work…
Now for the bonus—add a fried egg on top. I prefer my egg sunny side up, but over easy would be great too. Serve with or without a bun.
Look at all the yumminess.
