Pesto Burger Shots

1 pound of ground turkey meat
pesto any type (I used Classico brand)
provolone cheese slices
2-3 roma tomatoes
fresh spinach leaves
sliced red onion
1 tsp. garlic salt
small rolls (I used Hawaiian dinner rolls)

In a medium size bowl add ground turkey or beef with about 6 T. pesto, 1 tsp. garlic salt and pepper generously, mix together with hands or spoon.
ake about 10 small but thick patties about the size of the rolls.
Wash and slice the toppings for your shots and have ready.
To get the cheese slices to match the size of your burgers I used a small round cookie cutter.
In small bowl mix 1/2 cup mayonnaise with 3-4 tsp. pesto.
Fry the patties in large skillet on medium heat until browned, only want to turn once, turning often dries out the meat.
Cut rolls and toast until browned.
Spread the pesto mayo on both sides and build the burgers.
Thanks Suzanne from You Made That~ for sharing this fabulous recipe!
