Usually burgers, for us, means Summer....but you know, when the Fall weather starts coming around, as much as I love it, sometimes I yearn for a juicy burger straight from the grill.
It so happened that last week I was craving burgers, and I also got some reduced price meat at my commissary so burgers went on the menu plan.
I have tried so many different variations of burgers, cheesy or bacon, barbecue, spicy, mild, you name it. I do however really enjoy Turkey and decided to go with that, I will use the other ground beef for something else later on in the week.
This recipe comes from one of my Taste of Home cookbooks, and I don't have to tell you how much I love Taste of Home, if you've been following my blog for a while you will know that to be true.
These were SO good, and I made double the recipe which yielded me some extra burgers for us for lunch and for my husband to take to college today.
Spinach Turkey Burgers
1 cup stuffing mix, finely crushed
1/3 cup chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon salt

1 pound ground turkey
4 sandwich buns, split
Cheese slices, lettuce leaves and tomato slices, optional
In a large bowl, combine the stuffing mix, broth, Italian seasoning,
salt, pepper and half of the spinach (save remaining spinach for
another use). Crumble turkey over mixture and mix well. Shape into
four 3/4-in.-thick patties.
Grill, uncovered, over medium-hot heat or broil 3-4 in. from the heat
for 3-4 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads
165° and juices run clear. Serve on buns with cheese, lettuce
and tomato if desired.
