Spinach and Feta Turkey Burgers

8 Dec

I’ve always loved a good ‘ol juicy burger! It was one of the things I missed most while I was a vegetarian for a year. While veggie burgers are good, they just aren’t quit the same! And when I decided to start eating meat again, I had a burger three nights in a row! I just couldn’t get enough of the beef!

Well, this is a healthified burger! Lower in fat and calories! But you will never know it! Because the taste of these burgers is simply amazing! The feta, onions, garlic, and oregano will shock your taste buds!

It was a little too chilly outside for me to grill, so I threw ’em in a frying pan instead. Worked perfect! And much warmer!


Spinach and Feta Turkey Burgers

2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil

1/2 red onion, chopped

2 cloves of garlic, minced

salt and pepper

1 box of frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1 tablespoon grill seasoning

4 ounces crumbled feta

1 1/3 pounds lean ground turkey

Heat oil in a medium sized skillet over medium heat. Saute onion with salt and pepper until soft, about 5-6 minutes. Add in garlic and saute an additional minute. Remove to a plate to cool.

In a medium sized bowl, mix together spinach, oregano, grill seasoning, feta, and ground turkey. Stir in cooled onion and garlic.

Form into four patties. Grill on high for five minutes per side, or until cooked through.
