With a pound of ground turkey meat sitting in my fridge, I knew I needed to make something before it went bad. I thought about meatballs, meatloaf and tacos but none of those ideas seemed to fit the bill.
Instead, I went with a simple turkey burger, cooked to perfection and served atop a bed of leafy spinach and topped with some guacamole and tomatoes. Yum.
For Turkey Burger:
Ground turkey meat
1 ripe avocado
2 slices tomato, diced
Squeeze of lemon juice
Cup of baby spinach
3 slices tomato
Sliced red onion
Drizzle pan with olive oil and turn onto medium heat. Form turkey meat into a patty and place in oil. Cook until the sides begin to turn brown. Flip, and cook until all juices run clear. Add cheese when burger is almost done and allow to melt.
Immediately place burger on bed of spinach and top with a slice of tomato, a spoonful of guacamole and a squirt of mustard.
Simply place all extras on the plate if desired.
