Turkey Burgers for Spring

Something about warm weather, sunshine and weekend afternoons make me want a juicy hamburger.  I like beef burgers–a lot, so  I wasn’t sure I’d find these burgers satisfactory, but my friend Jen came through again.  This is a great burger.  I’ve made it with ground turkey, ground chicken and fresh chicken sausage.  All good.

1/2 cup chicken broth, fat free

Directions:
1.  Shred spinach in small pieces and combine with other ingredients.  Mix well.  Make into 4 pattys.

All you need to do is add the bun of your choice.  You can go with a very thin, whole grain one and add tomatoes, avocado, onion for a healthy meal or go all out with a thick slice of cheese and a bun.  I ate my burger on a spinach salad with a side of garlic parmesan dressing.  I highly recommend that choice!  Enjoy
