Spinach and Feta Turkey Burgers

Recipe adapted from:

  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 onion, minced
  • 4 ounces feta cheese
  • 1/2 bag fresh spinach
  • 2 pounds ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs


1.Preheat an outdoor or indoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil grate.
2.While the grill is preheating, saute onion and garlic together over med-high heat. When they are opaque add the spinach and let wilt. Mix together eggs, garlic, feta cheese, spinach mixture, and turkey in a large bowl until well combined; form into 8 patties.
3.Cook on preheated grill until no longer pink in the center, 5-10 on the indoor grill 15 to 20 minutes on an outdoor grill.

Notes & Tips:
This was so good. Most turkey burgers I have eaten come out pretty dry. This one is moist and flavorful. I served this on those new thin wheat buns with mustard, but you could certainly put lettuce and tomato and whatever else you'd like on there.
