Italian Turkey Burger

Italian Turkey Burger

When I buy ground meat, before I freeze it, I make 1/4 pound portions and wrap them in Glad Press n Seal. This way they don't freezer burn and they are already in single portions!

Instead of a bun I decided to top mine with mozzarella, put it under the broiler till it melted, then added tomatoes, basil and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.

1/4 lb ground turkey

1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 slice of prosciutto, pancetta, or bacon
1/4 small onion, diced
1garlic clove, chopped
1 bay leaf

1 handful baby spinach, torn

1 tsp tomato paste
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

1/2 tbs grated parmigiano
1/4 tsp oregano
Salt and pepper, to taste

balsamic vinegar

In a saute pan over medium heat add the olive oil, prosciutto, garlic, onion, bay leaf, and saute about 5-7 minutes.

Remove bay leaf and add spinach just till wilted. About 2 minutes.

In a bowl, mix the ground turkey with the onion spinach mixture, tomato paste, parmigiano, oregano, red pepper flake, salt and pepper. Form into a patty and grill until cooked.
