My kids actually like these, and they are eating something that is good for them. Made with ground turkey and frozen spinach, I also throw in raw sunflower seeds and celery which makes them crunchy. If I want to get a little fancier with them I will make a brown gravy and add mushrooms. Serve over noodles, rice, or mashed potatoes.

Drain spinach and squeeze excess water out. Mix all ingredients. Divide evenly into patties and fry in nonstick skillet. 4 servings of 3 cakes each.


Mushroom Sauce Option:  Brown one small can of mushrooms in the same skillet you fried the burgers in. Add more onions if you like. Add 2 cups of water to the skillet and bring to a boil. Add all the seasonings. Stir up 2 Tbs. cornstarch into about a 1/4 C. water. Add this mixture to the skillet stirring constantly until it starts to thicken. Add the burgers to the gravy and serve over rice, noodles, or mashed potatoes.

  • I normally don't want to think about any ground meat, but this is a fabulous, fantastic recipe! And it sure makes a lot for a small amount of money..... WAY TO GO for submitting a real winning recipe! I also sometimes make the gravy with milk, butter, flour and some Kitchen Bouquet for a dark color and a little more flavor. Love both, yours it less fattening. Thanks again for the great recipe!
