Sunday started off rough, with an early wake up and an upset stomach. It was my scheduled 5 mile long run, so I knew I needed to just get out there and do it! The boys dropped me off at a trail and ran a couple errands while I ran. It was pretty cold out for the first mile and a half, but then I just pushed myself! I did not stop once…not to stretch, shake out my legs, or pee (I am known to do all three). I ended up with a time of 49:46, which means a 9:55/mi!! A PR for me, hooray!!! I celebrated by making a yummy new recipe!!!
Spinach and Feta Stuffed Turkey Burgers
1 lb Extra Lean Ground Turkey
2 egg whites
1 cup quick oats
2 handfuls spinach or 1 can spinach
1/2 cup feta cheese
spices of your choice
Mix all ingredients in a bowl, form into patties. I was able to make 9 patties with my mixture.
These can be grilled or cooked in a frying pan. I used a frying pan with PAM Extra Olive Oil for mine
and cooked them slowly on stove top temperature of 4.
I also roasted some bell peppers to use as a topping for the burger. Easy Peasy, just roast in the oven at 400F for 10 minutes on each side
I served it up with a whole wheat bagel thin (lightly toasted) and some garlic flavored couscous (first time I EVER tried couscous)…
Overall, a very good meal!!! The burgers were moist and VERY flavorful, something that usually lacks from my other turkey burgers! These babies are a keeper!!!
Yay or Nay for Turkey Burgers??
