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.

  2. 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  3. 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  4. 1 pound ground lean turkey
  5. 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  6. 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  7. 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
