It may not be summer yet, but baseball has started which signals to me that its only a matter of time before we bust out the flip flops, tank tops and shorts. Oh and of course, our grills. While I can’t bring out my collection of $2 Old Navy flip flops in every color just yet, I figured I’d get a jump start on the grilling aspect of summer with this Spinach and Feta Turkey burger.
I like turkey burgers. I think I might actually prefer them to beef burgers. I like that they are lighter in flavor and to me they aren’t nearly as greasy. Lets just say I feel that I can get away with eating burgers more often if they are turkey burgers rather than beef burgers. Whether or not that is actually the case is another debate. Either way, this burger with spinach, feta and a pinch of nutmeg is sure to get you ready for summer.
