Dinner #2 turkey burgers with mixed greens

I think this is going well, considering its day 2! This dinner got raves from Chris & me! First the veggies. Stew Leonard's makes this awesome pre mixed veggie combo that's shredded: Brussels, kale & red cabbage. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat & add greens along with 2 tablespoons chopped garlic. Toss for a minute add 1/2 cup organic chicken stock, and 1/2 teaspoon salt toss and cover until tender - don't cook it too long or it will get mushy. It took 3-5 minutes.

For the little burger I mixed about a pound of lean ground turkey, 1 finely chopped bell pepper, small onion, handful of  chopped cilantro, 1/2 teaspoon salt and ground pepper. I mixed until blended with my fingers - if you over mix it makes meet tough!  After I divided meat into 3.5oz patties - by using a scale. I grilled each for about 5 minutes a side in a cast iron grill pan on medium heat and added a tiny bit of water for the last minute and covered. The patties we didn't eat we froze for another day. 

Dinner was super yummy!
