Fresh Chèvre and Spinach Turkey Burgers

Serves 4

1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/4 medium yellow onion, chopped
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 1/4 pounds ground turkey
1 cup chopped fresh spinach (about 2 ounces)
3 ounces fresh chèvre
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the onions and stir until they are fully coated. Cook for 2 minutes until the onions begin to soften. Stir and reduce the heat to low. Let cook for 3 minutes and add the garlic. Stir and cook for 2 more minutes until the onions are brown. Set aside.

Preheat the broiler to high and oil a broiler pan.

In a medium bowl, add the turkey, spinach, cheese, mustard, salt, pepper and the onion mixture. Using your hands, mix until fully combined. Form the turkey mixture into four patties 3/4-inch thick and place the patties on the broiler pan.

Place the pan in the center of the oven and broil for 8 minutes. Flip the burgers and broil for an additional 7 minutes or until golden and cooked through.

Serve the burgers with a fresh green salad or on a toasted bun with your favorite toppings.
