Garlic Parmesan Turkey Burgers

  1. Mix all ingredients together.
  2. Form 4 patties and place on a grill or griddle on medium-high heat.
  3. Grill a few minutes on each side and turn. Cook until no longer pink in the middle.
  4. I served this on a 9 grain ciabatta roll. Voila!

Creamed Spinach Sauce

  1. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the onion and cook until translucent, 3-4 minutes. Stir the flour into the onions and cook 1 minute.
  2. Whisk in the half-and-half, broth, salt, cayenne, and nutmeg. Bring sauce to a simmer, then reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes, until it begins to thicken.
  3. Add the spinach, stirring until wilted. Mix in the Parmesan and lemon juice, and add more half-and-half if the sauce has thickened too much. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
