I love how fancy these spinach-mozzarella stuffed burgers look and how delicious they taste! With only 1g of carbohydrates (0g sugar!) and 33g of protein, these burger patties are perfect for the paleo diet and keto if you allow mozzarella and parmesan cheese! Each serving is also a great source of iron, providing 18% of your daily needs. Thanks to the cheese you are also provided with 15% of your daily calcium needs!
