After 10 minutes, toss the potatoes and asparagus and place back in the oven for another 10 minutes.home fries

Create the burgers by taking the ground turkey and pesto and mixing it in a bowl with one hand. Form 4 patties with the mixture and sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and place the burgers in the pan once it’s hot. Flip burgers after 3-4 minutes and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes on the opposite side. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top and cover with a lid to allow the cheese to melt.asparagus
