Healthy spinach and mozzarella turkey burger patties can be baked in the oven on a sheet pan or frozen until ready to cook

I make these juicy turkey burgers year round; they’re just as good baked in the oven as they are grilled outside and they freeze well so you can pull them out for a last minute dinner or lunch option.  The spinach not only adds nutrition, but is the key for keeping them moist and delicious.  I like them with a side of roasted green beans and baked fries.

Be sure to try a side of my homemade baked carrot fries to go with these delicious turkey burgers!

We finally had no plans this past Sunday.  I swear those are the best kind of Sundays!  Not that I don’t like seeing friends or family, but it’s so nice to not have to worry about going anywhere and staying home all day.  Plus Dallas breaks our hearts with his little head peeking out the window every time we leave.  My handy man hung up string lights for our patio deck and they look fabulous!!!  What a difference some lighting can do :).

While John was finishing with the lights I grilled up some of these healthy spinach mozzarella turkey burgers alongside my baked carrot fries with maple chipotle dipping sauce  A burger an fries was the perfect way to end my Sunday, and being healthy made it that much better.
