~Shopping List~

  • 1 turkey patty
  • 1/4 cup spinach
  • 2 Tbsp feta cheese
  • 1 whole-wheat hamburger bun
  • 1 Tbsp real mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup mixed greens
  • Olive oil
  • Red wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper

~To do~

Heat broiler to high.  Season each side of burger with salt and pepper.  Spray a broiler pan with nonstick spray (line with foil for easier clean up), and place burger under broiler.  Broil each side for 4-6 minutes, until no longer pink inside.  Add feta and return under broiler for just a minute, until cheese begins to melt.  Spread mayo on bun, top with burger and spinach.  Serve with mixed greens drizzled with olive oil and vinegar; season with salt and pepper.

~Alternatives~

Turn it into a patty melt.  Add some sautéed onions and use swiss instead of Feta.  Serve on 2 slices of sourdough instead of the bun.
