Turmeric Spinach Spice Turkey Burgers


The spice rack in our house is more like a spice drawer, it’s also overflowing. Unfortunately I’ve never really looked at everything in there. That’s how I ended up making my dinner a bit more Indian and less the typical Italian or Mexican dish I tend to make. I got bored, sifted through the jars, and found turmeric in the cabinet and had no idea what it was. But I felt it probably could go well with ground turkey. And I dumped in some spinach too because I need vegetables and vitamins.

1/2 pound of ground turkey
1/4 cup of frozen spinach, thawed
2 tsp of turmeric
1/2 tsp garlic powder

Mix ingredients and form into patties. Grill or cook with a bit of olive oil in a saute pan.

Easy Baked Onion Rings

Go healthy. That’s what I’ve been telling myself lately. At least until Halloween anyway. After Halloween I can start packing on sweaters and long pants, right?

These were fabulous. And so much healthier than dumping them in a vat of oil

4C Italian bread crumbs
Egg whites
Onion, I use Vidalia cause they’re sweet
Garlic powder
Cayenne pepper

Preheat that oven to 400. On one plate, put some flour, in a bowl set aside the egg whites, and on another plate put the bread crumbs. I put garlic powder and cayenne pepper in the crumbs to give it more kick. You can put it to your liking, but I like to be able to see the cayenne, give it heat.

Flour the sliced onion rings, dip into egg whites, then bread in the crumbs. Place on a cookie sheet, I put some parchment paper down so I wouldn’t have to scrub the cookie sheet.

Pre-oven cooking.

Bake for 20 minutes, or until crispy. These were so good! and super easy.
