Ingredients

    99% Fat Free Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast (such as Jennie O)
    2 slices light honey wheat bread, crusts cut off (such as Nature's Own)
    2 T skim milk
    1 10oz package frozen spinach, rinsed and squeezed dry
    1/4 cup light mayo (such as Hellmann's Canola Mayo)
    1/2 t curry powder, to taste
    1T Mrs. Dash onion and herb
    8T chopped roasted red peppers, divided
    4 slices reduced fat deli style sliced provolone cheese (such as Sargento)
    Paprika for color
    Salt and Pepper to taste

    Suggested Toppings(not included in nutritional info):
    Sliced Tomatoes
    Lettuce
    Fresh Spinach
    Hellmann's Dijonnaise

Directions

Preheat broiler

In a bowl combine bread and milk. Let sit for @ 3 minutes. Squeeze excess milk from bread (there won't be much to squeeze)

Combine spinach, bread, mayo, curry powder, Mrs. Dash, and mix well (add salt and pepper if desired). Add ground turkey and mix until just combined (over working the turkey will make it tough).

Divide turkey mixture into 4 equal sized rounds. Make 2 equal sized patties out of each round so you have 8 patties total. Top 4 of the patties with 2 tablespoons each of roasted red peppers and 1 slice of cheese. Top with remaining patties crimping the turkey around the edges to seal burgers closed tightly. Sprinkle each side with salt, pepper, and paprika.

Place under broiler for 7 minutes (I use the 2nd shelf so the outside won't burn and leave the inside raw), flip and broil for additional 3 minutes or until done.

*Serve on whole wheat buns with topping of your choice. I personally love the new Arnold Select Sandwich Thins. They're only 100 calories and full of fiber*
