Turkey Spinach Burger Recipe

When the kids want burgers but refuse to eat their vegetables, it’s time to get creative. This turkey burger recipe makes a delicious burger by combining turkey and spinach. You can also throw in raw sunflower seeds and celery which makes them crunchy. If I want to get a little fancier with this simple recipe, feel free to serve with gravy and mushrooms on the side. You can even serve this over noodles, rice, or mashed potatoes.
