Good morning everyone and HAPPY MONDAY! Sense the enthusiasm in my voice? Ah, yes, I tricked you! I am merely also trying to trick myself into getting halfway excited about going back to work. After 4 glorious days off spent adventuring with the Mister (AND I have another adventure to share!) and spending time with friends and family, I’m not ready for all the fun to end (damn you who all have a REAL summer! – hold on to it, people!).
I received several requests for the Spinach Goat Cheese Turkey Burger recipe from my dinning al fresco post. Ask, and you shall receive, people – I’m here for YOU!
Get ready because this recipe is kinda tricky… (for those of you who are a bit slow this Monday morning [or those who share Sheldon's dilemma], have no fear – I’m being sarcastic )
- 1 to 1 1/2 pound(s) of ground turkey (depending on your desired patty size)
- 1 cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
- 2 tablespoons goat cheese (crumbled)
1.) Preheat oven broiler or grill
2.) Mix turkey, spinach and cheese. Form mixture into 4 patties, equal in size.
3.) Arrange patties on grill or broiler pan. Cook 15 minutes, or until done.
Try adding any other fun mix-ins that suit your fancy!
I like adding pine nuts or sun dried tomatoes.
Feel free to experiment with other cheese and vegetables, too!
What is your favorite burger mix-in?
