Spinach Feta Burgers

While Maria was here she made me some of her famous spinach feta turkey burgers! Totally tasty!!! You could put these in a sandwich but we enjoyed them straight up with some brussel sprout chips! YUM!

all I have to say is ... YUM!


Maria's Turkey Burger

In a large sauce pan brown garlic and onion in a little olive oil, then add spinach, cook until wilted. Set aside in a large bowl and let cool
drizzle olive oil
1 small onion diced
4 cloves garlic
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 package baby spinach

Then toss the following into the cooled spinach mixture
1 lb lean ground turkey
1/2 cup feta cheese

Gently mix and then form into burgers. Refrigerate for 20 minutes (this helps them hold together when you grill them) and then cook on the grill until no longer pink in the middle.

CHOW

Sunshine said...

Oh man, why do you have to post such yummy stuff in the morning? I want this instead of the yogurt I planned on eating.

What a great looking burger, that sounds like a slider recipe to me.

I love how thick the burger looks! I've never had a turkey burger before. I actually didn't know it could be done until I started watching the food network. I suggested it to my mom and she was like.. that's way too lean! She has a difficult time with buying extra lean ground beef too. I'm always trimming off the thick white blocks of fats from our steaks before we cook them. What am I going to do with my fat loving family.. haha.

I just came across a package of frozen spinach in my freezer this afternoon. This would be a great way to use it.

Love feta in burgers. Any cheese actually. Adds a natural, salty flavor.

Between the burgers themselves and those brussels sprout chips, I'm totally drooling.

Yummy yummy yummy!!! I made something very similar to this a couple of months ago in the form of a meatball - but I believe I used lamb. You are awesome!
