Turkey and Spinach Burger Recipe

Find Out What Makes These Turkey Burgers So Healthy

If you're over the standard meaty turkey burger, try this lighter, greener baked variation. Lean ground turkey cuts out nearly half the fat of traditional recipes, while a slew of spring onions and spinach amp up the vitamin C, vitamin A, and iron. I would not recommend throwing these patties on the grill since the spinach makes them a little finicky to flip, but they're easy to bake in the kitchen and serve alongside your other BBQ classics from off the grill. Slide them onto a bun with leafy lettuce, tomato, and red onion or over red cabbage for a healthy and unexpected crunch.
