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
- 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
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!
Sweet Potato "Buns" of Baked Fries

Place sliced sweet potatoes on a baking sheet that is lightly coated with coconut oil and bake at 375 for approximately 10 minutes, then flip them over and cook for another 10-15 minutes or until done.
