Air-Fryer Spinach & Feta Turkey Burgers


Sharp raw garlic, fresh herbs and tangy feta cheese superbly flavor these turkey burgers. Since the patties are air-fried with very little oil, there's room to add a bit of olive oil to the meat to keep the patties from drying out. Serve with air-fried zucchini fries (see associated recipe).

2 burgers


  • 8 ounces ground turkey breast

  • 1 ½ tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano

  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 2 garlic cloves, grated

  • ½ cup baby spinach leaves

  • ¼ cup thinly sliced red onion

  • ½ tablespoon red-wine vinegar

  • ¼ cup crumbled feta cheese

  • 2 whole-wheat burger buns, split and toasted


  1. Lightly coat air-fryer basket with cooking spray.

  2. Combine turkey, oil, oregano, crushed red pepper, salt and garlic in a bowl. Mix well. Form the mixture into 2 (1/2-inch-thick) patties. Place in the prepared air-fryer basket and cook at 360°F, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 155°F, 13 to 15 minutes.

  3. Toss spinach, onion and vinegar together. Divide feta among top and bottom halves of buns. Place the burgers on the bottom halves of the buns. Top with the spinach mixture and the bun tops.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
