Happy Tuesday everyone! I’ve been MIA recently and I apologize. Work gets very busy in the summer time and I also pick up more activities that add to my busy schedule. But never fear! I haven’t forgotten about you. Here’s my healthy spin on a cheese burger to satisfy your burger cravings the healthy way. Cheers😊

Recipe: makes 4 burger patties

1 pound organic lean ground turkey
½ cup chopped scallions
2 tbsp all spice mix (or you could season with salt and pepper to your desired taste)
2 tbsp EVOO (or grapeseed oil)
4 sprouted whole grain burger buns
1 organic avocado
Cheddar cheese slices for topping
1 sweet potato (sliced and grilled)

First, turn on your grill. Combine ground turkey with seasoning until well incorporated, and then divide into 4 patties. Rub each patty with olive oil and set aside until your grill is ready.

Place the patties on the grill and grill for 15 minutes, flipping over after 5 minutes. These have to be cooked completely since its poultry. Before taking out the patties, top them with sliced cheese, then cover them on the grill for a few seconds until the cheese is completely melted.

Spread avocado on burger buns and then top with the grilled turkey patties. Top with scallions and serve with sweet potato spears. Serves 4.
