-1/3 cup rolled oats
-1 tsp Dijon mustard
-Salt and pepper, to taste

In a medium bowl, combine the ground turkey, carrot, apple,mustard, salt, and black pepper. Use a fork to blend the ingredients until they are evenly incorporated. Divide mixture into four patties. Heat a cast iron pan or grill over high heat. Rub with cooking oil. Grill the burger for about 3-4 minutes then flip. Grill on the other side for another 3-4 minutes or until burger is cooked through.
SPINACH & EGG KIRSCH MUFFINS
-1 whole egg
-2 egg whites
-1 tsp water
-1 tsp Dijon mustard
- Salt and pepper, to taste
-1 cup fresh baby spinach coarsely chopped
Preheat oven to 350 F. In a small bowl, gently whisk the whole egg, egg whites, water, mustard, salt and pepper until well mixed, but not too foamy. Set aside.
Wash the spinach leaves and drain but let the spinach stay damp, because the water will prevent the spinach from drying out when you cook it. Heat a medium nonstick skillet over high heat and saute the spinach until wilted.
Place the spinach at the bottom of 10 silicon mini muffin molds. Divide egg white mixture between the molds. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes or until center is firm to the touch.
