Turkey Spinach Burgers

I've always been very fond of turkey burgers.   They are one of my favorite things.  In fact I would rather have a turkey burger than one made with ground beef, and that's the truth.  I recently made some for our supper and tried to incorporate some vegetables into the mix so that I could get in both extra fiber and vitamins, notably iron as I am iron deficient.   They were delicious!

I added some whole wheat bread crumbs to help bind them together and I confess . . .  a bit of cheese for extra flavor.  (In my defense I did use the low fat variety. and I ate my burger without a bun.)

On the side we had roasted sweet potatoes, which I had cut into slices, spritzed with low fat cooking spray and some garlic and onion powder, plus pepper and then roasted in a hot oven . . .  and a green vegetable mix.

Todd had his on a bun with a slice of cheese melted on top.  He really enjoyed it.  I made him eat some tomato and lettuce with it. He's not a salad nut, but if I give it to him he will eat it.  He also had some mayo on the bottom roll, plus he had all the veg that I had as well.  He can't afford to lose weight.  We were both happy with what we had.  No complaints. I do love sweet potatoes and spinach too.

Combine the bread crumbs and the chicken broth along with the seasonings and spinach.  Crumble the turkey into a bowl.   Add the crumb mixture and gently mix to combine.   Shape into four 3/4 inch thick patties.  Grill, uncovered over medium high heat for 3 to 4 minutes per side, until the juices run clear.  (Alternately you can broil them 3 to 4 inches from the heat under a grill for 3 to 4 minutes per side.)  If desired, serve on toasted buns with your choice of toppings and condiments.
