I don’t usually crave hamburgers. (Unless I’m pregnant, then the cravings are severe. I have been known to get emotional about my burgers while pregnant too. One time I balled when Brett screwed up my order. I only wanted meat, cheese, and the bun. How could he get it wrong? I laugh now, but if you ever ask him about it, he’ll tell you I went nuts and that it wasn’t funny at all.)
I am not pregnant but I’ve been craving burgers lately. In an attempt to avoid the guilt I usually feel after consuming a burger (and let’s be honest, lots of fries) from Five Guys or In-N-out, I made these Naked Turkey Burgers piled high with sauteed spinach and mushrooms.
I could have cried they were so good. Even without a bun! But what really got me was watching my husband eat his without dousing it in hot sauce, ketchup, or barbecue sauce. And get this…enjoying it!
The sauteed mushrooms, spinach, and garlic add great flavor so there really is no need for extra saucy stuff. The only thing Brett said was missing was a side of baked sweet potato fries. After all, fries make every burger better.
