mini turkey burgers


So this recipe I just found today, and I can already tell you I’m going to be making it a lot. It’s pretty good and really healthy too. Plus, if you’re always busy there’s not much hassle with it!

What you’ll need:

  • Lean ground turkey (usually a package from HEB or Wal-Mart will do)
  • Small Sweet Potato
  • 1 cup fresh spinach (out of those salad bags will work fine)
  • 1/2 tsp salt (the recipe calls for more but I’m not big on salt)
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • dash of paprika (my own concoction)

So like I said, the actual recipe calls for different ratios of the spices but honestly this recipe is so straightforward you can add however much you fancy.

Cool beans. Okay. Now the good part:

  • Heat up the sweet potato to where its a little tender but not baked potato worthy (not mushy). Microwave it, honestly. Put it on a paper towel or paper plate or something like that for about 3 and a half ish minutes and it should be good to go.
  • While the sweet potato is heating up, chop up the spinach. I’m no five-star chef, so chopping up leafy greens is not my forte. If need be, just kind of tear it up into small pieces.
  • When the sweet potato is done, take it out (please let it cool first, I probably have some burns on my hands) and peel the skin off. A peeler is your best option, but it’s not hard to just use your fingers to peel it.
  • Okay. Now that that’s done, add the meat, spinach, sweet potato, and spices into a bowl and mush it all together so that it all kind of sticks.
  • This part is kind of up to you, so you don’t have to follow what I do exactly. You can grill it, put it in a pan on the stove, or even a griddle; whatever you fancy is the best choice. For me, I baked mini burgers using a muffin tin.
  • Super easy. Preheat oven to about 350 degrees, set the tiny burgers in the tin, and stick them in there for about 15-20 minutes.
  • ENJOY! You can use whatever type of bun on them… I chose to go bun-less and eat it with half of an avocado.


All in all, if you need to do a meal prep for a busy week, this is a pretty great option. I would say it costs less than $10 to make this meal, which, heck yes. In my opinion that’s way better than eating out!

Alright y’all. I hope you enjoyed this recipe (first one whoop!) and I promise to bring you more each week.

Thanks and Gig ‘Em!
