Turkey Burger and Sweet “Fries”by:Lindsay, January 12th, 2011
A healthier alternative to the beloved burger and fries.
Yield 4 Servings
- 1/4 Cup Onion, small diced
- 2 Teaspoon Oil
- 1 -20 Ounce Package Ground Turkey Breast
- 1 Ounce Grated Asiago Cheese
- 3 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
- 1 Teaspoon Salt
- 1 Teaspoon Dijon Mustard
- 1 Egg White
- 10 Ounces Spinach, stems removed
- 1 Clove Garlic, minced
- 4 Pepperidge Farm “Deli Flats”, English Muffins, or your favorite roll
- 2 Tomatoes
- Mustard for the rolls
Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a saute pan over medium heat. Saute the onion in the oil until slightly golden, about 5 minutes, stirring often. Let cool.
Combine the onion, turkey, asiago, Worcestershire, 1 teaspoon salt, mustard and egg white. Mix very well. Divide the meat into 4 burgers, sprinkle each with salt and pepper.
Heat a nonstick pan over medium high heat. Add 1 teaspoon oil. Rub the oil around with a paper towel to coat the pan. Place the burgers in the pan and cook over medium heat for about 6 minutes on each side, until the meat it cooked through. Remove from the pan and cover while you cook the spinach.
If there is no oil left in the pan, add a little more. Reheat the pan. Add the garlic and stir until aromatic, about one minute. Add the spinach. Allow to wilt and cook until any excess moisture has evaporated. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Slice the tomato into 1/4 inch slices.
Spread a little mustard on the bread, top with a burger, a couple slices of tomato, the sauteed spinach, and top with the bread.
Serve with Sweet Potato “Fries”
- 2 Small Sweet Potatoes, peeled and cut into approximate 1/4 x 1/4 inch strips
- 1 Tablespoon Oil
- 1 1/2 Teaspoons Salt
Toss the sweet potato in the oil and salt. Place on a parchment lined sheet pan, bake at 400° for 20 minutes. Stir the potatoes a couple times during cooking for even browning.
