Spinach & Feta Turkey Burgers

This recipe is a favorite of mine, and many of my clients. I have turned many of non turkey burger believers into lovers after trying these juicy burgers. Yes you read that right a JUICY turkey burger, it is possible!!!!!

If you were a follower of my old blog then you have seen this recipe before but now it has a healthier twist. If you are new, welcome, I am happy to have you! Now lets keep it short and sweet. Here is how you make the magic happen.

Spinach & Feta Turkey Burgers

Serving Size - 4

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1  package spinach sautéed and drained
  • ½ cup feta cheese
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup diced onion
  • 1 t garlic powder
  • 1 t red pepper flakes
  • ¼ t salt

Directions:

Chop onion and place in a bowl, mix remaining ingredients, combine well. Form into four patties.

Preheat oven to 350. Place pan over medium-high heat, spray with oil. Place burgers in pan and cook for 4 minutes on each side until browned.

Transfer burgers to a foil lined baking sheet and place in oven for 15 minutes. When they are cooked they should get a fluffy plump look. 

Now to keep it fun you can serve it 3 ways, or make it your own. For a real good burger experience I love an egg bun, delicious!!!! For a nice healthy light lunch or dinner serve it over a mixed green salad. For a quick bite, party appetizer or a snack for kids make them burgers a little smaller for sliders and serve them on a sweet potato "bun". 

Ok, so I couldn't mention the buns and not share a recipe so here is a bonus for you guys today!
