Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat grill to medium-high. Squeeze excess moisture from spinach. Combine the spinach with turkey, feta, garlic powder, oregano, salt and pepper in a medium bowl; mix well. Form into four 4-inch patties. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the patties until cooked through and no longer pink in the center, 4 to 6 minutes per side. (An instant-read thermometer inserted in the center should register 165 degrees F.) Assemble the burgers on the buns, topping each with 1 tablespoon tzatziki, 3 cucumber slices and 2 onion rings.



To make ahead: Prepare patties, wrap individually and refrigerate for up to 8 hours.

Tip: To oil a grill rack, oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.)

Excellent use of turkey meat. We were getting tired of our weekly turkey burgers. We used fresh spinach blanched and served them on little pita breads... a bit messy but oh so good! Read More

Fantastic will definitely make again! I measured the spinach thawed so I think I was a little heavy but we liked it that way. I served it on naan instead of a bun. Read More

Thank you for this incredible recipe! I used lean ground chicken in place of turkey because it's what I had on hand. These burgers are absolutely amazing! Flavorful tender and satisfying. My family looks forward to enjoying them again very soon. Thank you! Read More
