Turkey and Spinach Burger Recipe

This Is the Turkey Burger You'll Be Grilling All Summer

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 scallions 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.

Turkey and Spinach Burger Recipe

Ingredients

1/2 bunch flat-leaf spinach, thick stems removed, leaves chopped (about 2 1/2 cups when chopped)
4 scallions, thinly sliced
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1 pound ground lean turkey
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
4 whole-wheat hamburger buns, lightly toasted

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a Pyrex dish with cooking spray.
  2. Combine spinach, scallions, garlic, turkey, and cumin in a medium bowl; season with salt and pepper. Using a fork, mix gently just to combine. Form turkey mixture into four equal patties.
  3. Bake burgers in Pyrex dish for 30 to 40 minutes, until burgers are cooked through and a meat thermometer reads 165 degrees.
  4. Transfer to a plate, and serve patties on buns with your favorite burger toppings.
