These turkey burgers are incredibly flavorful, easy to make, and have some extra veggies thanks to the spinach!
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 red onion, finely diced, 1 cup
1 Teaspoon Italian seasoning, see notes
1/2 Teaspoon dried onion granules
1/2 cup finely chopped sun-dried tomatoes, drained from the oil they’re packed in
3 cups baby spinach, chopped, 3 ounces
1 Teaspoon sea salt, more or less to your taste
1/2 Teaspoon ground black pepper
1 pound ground turkey
Preheat a large 10″ cast iron skillet over medium high heat. When the pan is hot but not smoking, add 1 tablespoon of the olive oil to the pan, along with the garlic and red onion. Cook stirring frequently until the onion is mostly translucent, 3-4 minutes.
Add the Italian seasoning, onion granules, sun-dried tomatoes, and spinach to the pan. Cook stirring constantly until the spinach just wilts, but is bright green, 2-3 minutes.
Remove the spinach mixture from the heat and add it to a medium sized mixing bowl, along with the sea salt, pepper, and ground turkey.
Mix together just to combine, then portion out into 6-8 small patties. (I like to shape smaller burgers because ground turkey falls apart easier than other ground meats.)
Place the same skillet back on the stove and lower the heat to medium. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the pan and fry the patties until they’re browned on one side, 5-6 minutes. Turn the patties over and continue to cook until browned on the other side and just done in the middle, 4-5 minutes.
Serve immediately with your choice of sides.
Look for Italian seasoning that doesn’t have any added salt or sugar. Also check the label for any ingredients other than herbs, some blends contain dairy.
