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!
