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.)

These were fantastic! I will definitely make them again. I didn't make the tzatziki but I did mix grated cucumber and finely chopped red onion in mayo and it was delicious with the burgers. 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

These were amazingly flavorful. We used ground chicken rather than turkey and served them in pita bread with lettuce. Easy to make and definitely making them again! Read More
