  • Summary

    If you're over the standard meaty turkey burger, try this lighter, greener baked variation. Lean ground turkey cuts out nearly half the fat of traditional recipes, while a slew of scallions and spinach amp up the vitamin C, vitamin A, and iron. I would not recommend throwing these patties on the grill since the spinach makes them a little finicky to flip, but they're easy to bake in the kitchen and serve alongside your other BBQ classics from off the grill. Slide them onto a bun with leafy lettuce, tomato, and red onion or over red cabbage for a healthy and unexpected crunch. Turkey-Spinach BurgersAdapted from Bon App├ętit Ingredients1/2 bunch flat-leaf spinach, thick stems removed, leaves chopped (about 2 1/2 cups when chopped) 4 scallions, thinly sliced 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 1 pound ground lean turkey 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper 4 whole-wheat hamburger buns, lightly toasted Directions Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a Pyrex dish with cooking spray. Combine spinach, scallions, garlic, turkey, and cumin in a medium bowl; season with salt and pepper. Using a fork, mix gently just to combine. Form turkey mixture into four equal patties. Bake burgers in Pyrex dish for 30 to 40 minutes, until burgers are cooked through and a meat thermometer reads 165 degrees. Transfer to a plate, and serve patties on buns with your favorite burger toppings.
