Hi, this is Shelley Chapman, your food relationship coach of eatrelatelove.com, and today we are making a turkey feta spinach burger. So, we're starting with a pound of turkey, and we're going to add in about a quarter cup, a third a cup of chopped spinach, fresh spinach that I'm using, you want to add that in there, chop it really fine, then you're going to add about a third a cup of sun dried tomatoes. So, you can give it rough chop or you can mince it finely, depends on what type of texture you want to bite in to when you're eating the finished burger and then we're going to add about half a half a cup to three quarters of a cup, depending on how cheesy like it of feta cheese, then we're going to add some cumin about half a teaspoon and smoked paprika a bout one teaspoon and one beaten egg and a little bit of salt to taste. And we're going to mix all of that together with our hands. And once we have our, our finished mixture, you see it's a really pretty parade of colors, we have red and white and green. So, we're going to go ahead and start forming our bag, our, our burgers. Now, this is very sticky, so sometimes it might help if you put a little olive oil on your hands, to keep the burger meat from sticking to your fingers. And you can get about four to five patties out of a pound of meat. And the nice thing about adding the sun dried tomatoes and the spinach is because we're using turkey meat, which is a very lean meat, it doesn't have as much fat as say beef, then you get a little bit of more added moisture from the vegetables while it's cooking, which helps the turkey itself, the burger become a little more moist as well and of course it's a little more interesting because who doesn't love feta cheese ans sun dried tomatoes in their burgers? And so after we finish forming our burger patties, we're going to go ahead and it's good to put a little indentation in the middle, just sort of dip your thumb in the middle and just make an imprint, so that your burgers can kind of cook up evenly and then you just want to go ahead and add it to a pan of hot oil and just brown both sides really quickly, kind of sear the meat. And then stick that pan, an oven proof safe pan, stick that pan in the oven at 375 degrees and let it cook for about another 15 minutes or so until finished. So, our turkey burgers are done with the spinach and sun dried tomatoes and feta cheese, don't they look delicious? Oh, my goodness. So, we just did a really, really quick sear after we made patties and then we stuck the oven proof pan in the oven for 15 minutes at 375 degrees. And they're perfect and they're moist, they're not dry, which is awesome because we don't want dry burgers. So, we're going to go ahead and just put these together really quickly. So to keep them with the theme we have sun dried tomatoes and feta cheese and spinach, kind of Mediterranean, no? So, with that we're just going to add a touch of mayo, put some mayo on our bread and I chose to use these, these thins, these Wheat Thins because truthfully I'm not a huge fan of having a lot of bread, so this is a great alternative, you still get the bread aspect, but it's a little thinner and so a little bit of a arugula on the bottom of this, ah perfect. And then we have some roasted red bell peppers instead of tomatoes like, you know what? Sense we're doing a Mediterranean type of burger thing, why not? So, roasted red bell peppers, beautiful, perfect. And we're going to take one of these patties and you can see the sun dried tomatoes there, the feta cheese, the spinach, it's perfect. Thank you so much for watching. I'm Shelley Chapman your food relationship coach and we just made a nice juicy turkey, sun dried tomato, feta, spinach burger. Thank you.
