"These are a big hit in the summertime when everyone is tired of the same old hamburgers and hot dogs. Serve with or without buns and your favorite condiments. I like to serve these with lettuce, tomato, and Tzatziki sauce (you can find recipes for that on this site as well)." — FoodieGeek

1 (10 ounce) box
frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
WOW. My husband asked for seconds! I used fresh spinach and cooked it in the oven because it wasn't grill weather. Turned out great!
I have cooked this twice. Once using tradintonal beef and once using turkey. The turkey burgers were ok, but when using regular beef they were fantastic!
Man cringed when I said I was making turkey-feta burgers... added some paprika, lemon juice, used egg whites, basil and additional garlic...absolutely FANTASTIC! My husband seriously couldn't stop eating or talking about how good they were! Thanks for the recipe -- will make this again and again!
So easy - just 5 ingredients - both my 6 & 9 year old sons love this - i added extra garlic - patties do not shrink so be careful with thickness - we have started adding chopped sun dried tomatoes -makes a very good burger even better - definitely better with good quality ground turkey breast - would give 6 stars if I could!
This was yummy! I added worcestershire and lemon juice as another reviewer suggested but I think I would leave out the lemon next time as it didn't seem to add anything to the taste. I would definitely recommend refrigerating the patties for at least an hour after forming to help them stick together. My husband had a heck of a time grilling them, but he said it was worth the trouble! We ate them on buns with mayo, tomato and lettuce for dinner and then again for lunch, Yum! :o)
This was an awesome recipe. I tweaked it a little per the suggestion of other reviewers, and sauteed the garlic with some onion and added fresh spinach to that mixture (didn't even drain this before adding to the meat), and I probably used a little more feta than the recipe specified. Next time, I would chop the spinach mixture before adding to the meat and I would add salt to the meat. I cooked mine on the stovetop and didn't really have any issues with them being jiggly. This recipe is definitely a keeper!
They are sort of weird and jiggly and cannot be made into a traditional "burger" patty. I suggest forming them as you are putting them on the grill. As soon as they have cooked a bit, they cease to be jiggly. These are the most excellent burgers I have ever eaten.
Made these at an Easter Cookout with the family and everyone loved them! I added mushrooms and accidentally forgot the feta cheese, but they were a big hit anyway. Also, I didn't make the tzatziki sauce due to a time crunch. Instead i used swiss cheese on onion buns and used light mayonnaise.
Only problem is that they're really soggy. I had a few fall through the grill. Tried putting them in a freezer for a while and it really helped.
This would be a great recipe to make and freeze and throw them on the george grill for a quick healthy meal!
