Rooster Burger

Cock-a-doodle-doo these are amazing burgers and I know you will think so too!  The sun-dried tomatoes and fresh spinach mix in the burgers creates a flavor combination your family will love.  If ground chicken is not available at your market, Turkey works great too; then I add just a bit of fresh chopped sage as well.  Oh by the way, you certainly don’t have to tell your kids about the spinach; when mine were young I referred to it as fresh herbs!


  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 3 sun-dried tomatoes finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary finely chopped
  • 1 cup fresh baby spinach (1/2 for the burgers & 1/2 as condiment)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
