Looking for a change-of-pace burger? Try these pretty sandwiches from C.A. Hedges of Clarence Center, New York. Instead of beef, the burgers are filled with spinach and turkey for a succulent switch to the usual grilled fare.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup stuffing mix, finely crushed
  • 1/3 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 4 sandwich buns, split
  • Cheese slices, lettuce leaves and tomato slices, optional

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the stuffing mix, broth, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper and half of the spinach (save remaining spinach for another use). Crumble turkey over mixture and mix well. Shape into four 3/4-in.-thick patties.
  2. Grill, uncovered, over medium-hot heat or broil 3-4 in. from the heat for 3-4 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 165° and juices run clear. Serve on buns with cheese, lettuce and tomato if desired.

    This is very popular in our house. For an alternate spread, try using light creamy caesar dressing. It is great with it.We have also doubled this recipe and made it into a meatloaf.
