Turkey Burger

Heart-Healthy Summer Recipe: Terrific Turkey Burgers

Barbecue season = best season. There’s nothing like juicy ribs and sweet saucy chicken coming off the grill… or is there?

Substituting beef with turkey is an easy, low-in-sodium option that's just as good. Try out this spin on a turkey burger for your next barbecue!


  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 package (10 oz) frozen spinach
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons pepper
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • Provolone cheese to melt


  • Take turkey out of package and place in mixing bowl, add seasonings and olive oil, and mix together.
  • Defrost package of spinach until warm, wringing out any excess water. Once thawed, add spinach to turkey mixture and mix again.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake for 12 minutes, 6 minutes on each side, (or until almost cooked all the way through). These can also be put on the grill for a charred smoky flavor. Once there’s about 2 minutes left, add slice of provolone and cook until melted.
  • Take out of oven, or off of grill, and enjoy!
