§ Ingredients

  • One (1) pound ground turkey.

  • 8 – 12 oz. frozen spinach, not thawed, broken into small pieces.

  • 12 teaspoon black pepper.

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder.

  • Olive oil or avocado oil sufficient to coat frying-pan bottom.

  • Optional: 6 – 8 oz feta cheese.

§ Method

Mix all ingredients (except for oil) in large mixing bowl using a fork. Form into patties of desired size and quantity. Coat bottom of frying pan with healthy oil and preheat on medium heat. Add patties to hot pan, cover and cook about 5 – 7 minutes or until desired brownness on bottom of patties; reduce heat if smoky or if oil spatters. Flip patties and cook second side for another 5 – 7 minutes or until desired brownness achieved. Cool patties on plate which has been lined with clean paper towels.

  • Delicious cold in a lunch bag, as a hot meal or as a quick snack.

  • A great protein source; eat with veggies for a complete meal with fiber and carbohydrate.
