As the moisture cooks out of the spinach, it has nowhere else to go but into the burgers, keeping them nice and juicy. This delicious, juicy turkey burger recipe is a perfect to spice up burger night! Plus this healthy, protein-packed recipe is bursting with flavor because it is full of natural herbs and spices. Delicious and nutritious all in one!
Total Time: 32 minutes
Yield: 4 serving(s)
- 1 pound lean ground turkey
- 2 tablespoons finely minced yellow onion
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
- 1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 4 whole wheat buns
- In a mixing bowl, combine ground turkey, yellow onion, oregano, garlic powder, salt, and pepper, folding together with your hands.
- Form ground turkey mixture into 8 thin patties.
- In a separate mixing bowl, fold together spinach, feta cheese, and minced garlic to create the burger filling.
- Place a heaping spoonful of the filling onto the center of 4 of the thin burger patties. Place the other 4 thin patties over top of the filling topped patties and press down around the edges, crimping to seal the filling inside. You should now have 4 stuffed burger patties.
- Oil and preheat a grill, indoor grill, or grill pan to high. Grill burgers for about 6 minutes on each side, or until cutting into one reveals no pink. Serve on whole wheat buns with your favorite burger fixings.
