½ onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 ½ cups Tassel Ridge Chardonnay
1 ½ cup spinach leaves, coarsely chopped (plus extra for garnish)
1/3 cup bread crumbs
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp. Italian seasoning
1 ½ Tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 ½ lb. ground turkey
Salt and pepper to taste
4 whole-wheat hamburger buns, split
1 tomato, sliced
Sauté onion and garlic with olive oil in a saucepan until slightly soft. Add wine and bring to a boil and cook until wine is reduced to ¼ cup. Let cool to room temperature.
In a food processor or by hand, rough chop the spinach leaves into bite-size pieces. Combine the spinach, breadcrumbs, cheese, mustard, and onion mixture in a large bowl. Crumble ground turkey over the mixture and combine gently before shaping into 5-oz patties.
Grill over medium-high heat for 12-16 minutes, turning once or until thermometer reads 165 degrees. Juices should be clear. Serve on buns with a slice of tomato and cheese.
