Turkey Burgers with Roasted Red Peppers and Spinach

We have a local restaurant, Bistro Byronz, that makes the very best turkey burger.
It is my absolute favorite.

What makes their turkey burger so fantastic is that is is juicy and full of flavor--
a great bun, a cheese filled burger, roasted red peppers and a special sauce. 
It is absolutely very tasty.
(They also have really great blue cheese chips, but we'll save that for another day.)

I really love to take a great dish and make it my own,
so here is my take on the Bistro Byronz turkey burger.

I paired the turkey meat with mild provolone cheese, dressed it with roasted red peppers, red onion, and spinach and made my own not-so-secret "secret" sauce.
