If you’re over the standard meaty turkey burger| try this lighter| greener baked variation. Lean ground turkey cuts out nearly half the fat of traditional recipes| while a slew of scallions and spinach amp up the vitamin C| vitamin A| and iron. I would not recommend throwing these patties on the grill since the spinach makes them a little finicky to flip| but they’re easy to bake in the kitchen and serve alongside your other BBQ classics from off the grill. Slide them onto a bun with leafy lettuce| tomato| and red onion or over red cabbage for a healthy and unexpected crunch.
