Grilled Turkey Burgers

Jay's wife Sarah declares these the "best burger EVER."  She says that she can go no longer than 10 days without one--year round!  Hummingbird says we love the "gourmet" burger where every ingredient is available with one local grocery stop.  Perfect!

1 lb ground turkey

1 medium diced onion

1 minced garlic clove

2 cups fresh finely chopped spinach

½ cup crumbled feta cheese

Salt & pepper to taste

Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)

3 brioche hamburger rolls 

For sauce: pulse ingredients together in a blender and set aside.

1 ½ tbsp. canned chipotle chilies with adobe sauce

2 tbsp. mayonnaise

1 tbsp. India relish

½ tsp. Worcestershire sauce

Sauté diced onion in 2 tbsp. of EVOO on low heat until caramelized (7-10 minutes). Add chopped spinach and garlic and sauté until both are cooked (3 minutes). Let cool.

Place ground turkey, feta cheese, salt and pepper in mixing bowl. Add cooled spinach and onion mixture and mix thoroughly. Make three equally size burgers. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.

Prepare grill to medium heat.  Grill turkey burgers to 165 degree internal temperature (6-7 minutes per side). Leave the burgers alone, flip only one time.

Grill brioche rolls, and serve with chipotle mayo sauce.    

Serves: Three 5.3 oz turkey burgers

Editor's Note:  Sarah said these are great with fresh "thin" onion rolls--available in the bakery of our local King Kullen supermarkets!
