Italian Seasoned Turkey Burgers


1 lb. 93% lean ground turkey
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
½ tsp. black pepper
~16 kalamata olives, halved
8 Tbsp part-skim grated fresh mozzarella
4 whole wheat hamburger buns
½ - 1 cup fresh spinach leaves (optional)


  1. Preheat grill to medium high.
  2. Place Italian seasoning, black pepper, and ground turkey in a large bowl.
    Combine gently.
  3. Divide turkey mixture into 8 equal portions; flatten into patties. Tip: Spray counter
    surface with cooking oil to prevent patties from sticking.
  4. Place an equal amount of cheese and olives in the center of 4 patties. Cover with
    the remaining patties and pinch the edges closed.
  5. Place stuffed patties on the grill. Turn once while cooking. Burgers are cooked when
    a thermometer inserted in the center reads 165º F (approximately 8-10 minutes).
  6. Serve each burger on a bun with spinach leaves if desired.
