I've always been very fond of turkey burgers. They are one of my favourite things. In fact I would rather have a turkey burger than one made with ground beef, and that's the truth. I recently made some for our supper and tried to incorporate some vegetables into the mix so that I could get in both extra fiber and vitamins, notably iron as I am iron deficient. They were delicious!
I added some whole wheat bread crumbs to help bind them together and I confess . . . a bit of cheese for extra flavour. (In my defense I did use the low fat variety. and I ate my burger without a bun.)
On the side we had roasted sweet potatoes, which I had cut into slices, spritzed with low fat cooking spray and some garlic and onion powder, plus pepper and then roasted in a hot oven . . . and a green vegetable mix.
Todd had his on a bun with a slice of cheese melted on top. He really enjoyed it. I made him eat some tomato and lettuce with it. He's not a salad nut, but if I give it to him he will eat it. He also had some mayo on the bottom roll, plus he had all the veg that I had as well. He can't afford to lose weight. We were both happy with what we had. No complaints. ☺I do love sweet potatoes and spinach too.
