Number of Servings: 4


    1 pound lean ground turkey
    3 tablespoons onion, finely chopped
    1 clove garlic, crushed
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    4 whole wheat hamburger buns
    1 cup packed spinach leaves
    4 tomato slices

    Basil Mayonnaise

    3 tablespoons plain greek yogurt
    1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
    1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard


I substitute greek yogurt for mayonnaise due to a food allergy. These burgers would also be wonderful on the grill.


In medium bowl, combine ground beef, onion, garlic, salt and pepper, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into four oval 1/2 inch thick patties.

Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Place patties in skillet; cook 7 to 8 minutes or until no longer pink and juices run clear, turning once.

Meanwhile in small bowl, combine Basil mayonnaise ingredients; mix well.

Line bottom half of each roll with spinach and tomato; top with 1 tablespoon mayonnaise mixture. Close with top half of roll.

Serving Size: Makes 4 burgers
