Truth: Jon and I just got our first grill a few months ago and neither of us had ever grilled before. Sure we'd eaten things that friends and family members have grilled but not on our own. Now that we are a few months into this grilling thing, we are obsessed. What took us so dang long to get one?! One of our favorite things to make these days is burgers. I tend to binge Pin yummy burger recipes on Pinterest and this spinach goat cheese turkey burger caught my eye. Burgers are so easy because I can take 5 minutes to patty them up at any time of day and pop them in the fridge. Neither of us is slaving in the kitchen and we always keep frozen sweet potato fries and fresh veggies on hand for a quick dinner.
The night we made these burgers, Jon could not stop raving about them. Guess who even nibbled on a burger? Mr. I won't eat anything but cheese and carbs Ford Hart! They are delicious, juicy, healthy, and of course, easy.
Ingredients*makes 5 burgers
1 lb lean ground turkey
1 egg, beaten
Spinach (either 6oz frozen, thawed or 1-2 handfuls of fresh spinach leaves torn...I prefer fresh and I always have it on hand)
1/3 cup Italian bread crumbs
3/4 cup crumbled goat cheese
2 tsp Tony Chacheres seasoning (or Season All if you can't find this)
Buns and fixings of your choice
1. Mix all ingredients besides fixings until fully combined
2. Form 5 patties making sure you don't make them too thick (harder to cook evenly that way)
3. Grill to your liking and enjoy!
Since Jon and I are so new to grilling, we rely heavily on a meat thermometer to make sure our meat is cooked. We love our new Cave Tools digital cooking thermometer because it spits out the temp in under 5 seconds, is accurate within 1 degree, and uses a replaceable watch battery. When you buy a Cave Tools digital thermometer, you get a free download of The Grill Master's Essential BBQ Recipe Book and a free 3 month subscription to WiseJack Cooking Recipes for Men.
