  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 cup chopped fresh spinach
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  2. Add all turkey burger ingredients, except for the olive oil, to a large mixing bowl.  Using your hands, mix the ingredients together until they are fully combined. 
  3. Divide the turkey burger mixture into 4, evenly sized patties.  The patties should be about the size of your palm and about 1/2 inch thick.  Using your thumb, make a small indentation in the center of each patty.  This will help the patties keep their shape while they are cooking.
  4. Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large skillet.  A cast iron skillet or a non-stick frying pan will work best. 
  5. Transfer the patties to the hot, oiled skillet.  Brown each side of the burgers for about 4 minutes per side, until they have a nice brown crust on the outside. 
  6. Transfer the browned burger patties to a small, rimmed baking sheet.  Place the baking sheet into the oven and cook the turkey burgers for 10-15 minutes, or until they have reached an internal temperature of at least 165°F.
  7.  Remove the burgers from the oven, top them with your favorite burger toppings and enjoy!
