Greek Turkey Burgers with Spinach, Feta & Tzatziki

Posted on May 22, 20

Give these a try to spice up your Memorial Day weekend.

 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed
  • 1 pound 93% lean ground turkey
  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 4 small hamburger buns, preferably whole-wheat, split
  • 4 tablespoons tzatziki
  • 12 slices cucumber

 

  • 8 thick rings red onion (about 1/4-inch)

 

 

 

Directions

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.)
