It was such a beautiful day today that I knew it was the right day to break out our new grill at the apartment. We thought that turkey burgers would be the perfect option. After looking through a bunch of recipes online I decided that we should try Spinach Goat Cheese Turkey Burgers.
The recipe is very simple and adapted from Allrecipes.com
Spinach Goat Cheese Turkey Burgers (Yields 4 burgers)
1 1/4 lbs. lean ground turkey
5 ounces (1/2 box) frozen chopped spinach
2 ounces plain goat cheese crumbles
1 T. no salt added garlic and herb seasoning mix
Thaw spinach and remove excess water by squeezing by hand and/or between paper towels.
Mix together turkey, goat cheese and spinach and sprinkle seasoning mix on top. Mix together by hand to combine ingredients and distribute seasoning.
Form well-packed patties.
Grill patties for approximately 15 minutes until they are cooked through, flipping once – or more as needed.
Serve patties on buns.
For us, the burgers alone were perfectly moist and delicious but if you’d like you can dress them up with a sauce – maybe pesto, tomato bruschetta or even spicy mustard or barbecue sauce – whatever you like.
