Turkey Spinach Burgers!

Here is a yummy one for y’all that can be used as an eat right away meal, or something you can prep and keep ahead for later meals.

1 tbsp coconut oil, divided
1 finely chopped medium onion
10 oz package of frozen spinach (thawed and drained)
1/3 cup broth
5 minced garlic cloves
1/2 cup bread crumbs***
1 1/4 lbs ground turkey
2 large eggs
1 tsp artisan salt
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

In a large skillet, warm half of the coconut oil over medium heat.
Saute the onion for 5-7 minutes.
Add the spinach and broth, and stir around until the liquid is absorbed. If you did a good job draining your spinach, this won’t take long.
Add the garlic and toss around for about a minute.
Put everything from the skillet in a large bowl to cool.
Once it’s cooled, add the bread crumbs, turkey, eggs, salt and crushed red pepper flakes.
Mix it all together, I like getting my hands dirty, but you can mix it with a spoon too.
Shape in to four to six burger patties.
Press an indent in the middle of your burgers before you cook them, it will keep them from puffing up into a ball.
In the large skillet, warm the other half of the coconut oil over medium heat.
Cook the burgers until they’re finished, 7-10 minutes per side.

This makes 4-6 burgers, depending how big you like them. ENJOY!!!

***TIP: If you have bread that’s a bit stale, use that. I always save the end pieces of the bread I make for recipes like this. I just chop up the ends and set them on the counter for a couple of days. Buying bread crumbs is a bit of a rip off. Just plan to make meals like this when you’re bread gets a little old. You can double plan ahead and thaw out your frozen spinach while the bread hardens up on the counter! I’ve even made these burgers without the bread crumbs, they’re yummy without too!

Also, feel free to add other seasonings that you like! Enjoy this healthy twist on a burger! YUM!
