Turkey Burgers & Zucchini Hash

So today in recognition of my new diet┬álifestyle, I made turkey burger patties and a zucchini and spinach hash as a side. Probably was still a little too liberal with the salt (it’s a hard habit to break!) but I think they turned out well!



1 package lean ground turkey
1 bunch green onion, minced
3 cloves garlic, minced
3-4 tablespoons seasoned bread crumbs
1 egg
salt, pepper, and other seasoning to taste
4 slices provole cheese (optional)

Zucchini Hash

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 zucchini, peeled and cubed
1 cup fresh or frozen chopped spinach
salt and pepper to taste

Combine all burger ingredients in a bowl (except for cheese) and hand mash until thoroughly blended. Separate mixture into quarters and form each quarter into a patty. For more even cooking, make patties slightly thinner in the middle.

Put burgers into a pan on medium-high heat with a spritz of cooking spray or some extra virgin olive oil. Cook 3 – 4 minutes on each side, or until you see a nice crispy brown coating. Remove from heat and add 1 slice of cheese on top of each patty and allow to melt.

For the vegetable hash, heat up the olive oil in a pan, then toss in the cubed zucchini and spinach. Season with salt and pepper, and cook until zucchini is no longer tough. Serve patty on lettuce or bun, add your favorite condiments, toss the hash on the side, and enjoy!


  1. Try it without cheese and I’m sure they are just as tasty- you won’t miss the extra calories!

  2. This sounds really good. I might just give this a try. I love zucchini and spinach as well as burgers. I might also try this with steak tartare, which is also low in fat. Have you tried that?
