Stuffed Turkey Burgers

If you're looking to lean up your hamburger patties, without losing out on flavor & moisture, these turkey burgers are for you!  I like to buy ground turkey every now & then so I don't get too burnt on ground beef~ gotta switch things up sometimes :)

I know turkey comes with a negative connotation sometimes; many people hear turkey & think "dry, flavorless, health food, diet, etc."... not fun words.  These turkey burgers will change your mind!  I stuff them with tons of veggies for nutrients, egg whites for moisture, and extra spices for big flavor.  No need for a bun either~ I throw these guys on top of a salad, or just eat them on their own with a fork & knife (and homemade sweet potato fries! :D).  

These are really simple to make & can easily be stored in the refrigerator for a quick protein option during the week.  Plus, they are juicy & delicious! Hope you enjoy :)

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 2/3 cup mushrooms, sliced and chopped
  • handful of spinach, chopped
  • 1/4 red onion, diced
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
  • salt & pepper 

Directions:
  1. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients (except salt & pepper). 
  2. Divide the mixture & shape into 4 equally sized patties. I pinch with my fingers to make mine a little thinner in the middle (helps keep them from getting too round when they cook). Sprinkle each side with salt & pepper.
  3. Heat a large skillet to medium-high heat, and coat with cooking oil of your choice (I like avocado oil). Add all four patties to the skillet and cook for 6 minutes. 
  4. Flip the burgers, and continue cooking for 4 minutes. 
  5. Done!
