Goat Cheese and Spinach Turkey Burger Recipe

I accidentally bought ground turkey breast at the grocery store instead of the ground turkey I needed…. I’m not usually a fan of ground turkey breast because it just so lean… but I improvised and made some turkey burgers and they were pretty great!  You could make this with any type of ground meat. 

Surprisingly, my kids really liked these (including the one who doesn’t like much of anything)….

This made 10 small burger patties (see picture).  I am sure you could half this recipe if desired.  I tasted the burgers and they were just calling out for something creamy and flavorful on top.  I topped it with a slice of Gruyere cheese and it was the perfect match.
