Spinach and Feta Stuffed Turkey Burgers

Updated: Oct 3, 2018


Just because it's September doesn't mean you need to wait until next summer to use your grill. These spinach and feta stuffed turkey burgers are simple to make and work great as a mealprep item. They're also a great alternative to beef patties for those looking for mix things up or reduce their red meat intake. Simply top with a whole grain bun, pair with a salad and you have a simple, complete, balanced meal!


Spinach and Feta Stuffed Turkey Burgers!

Ingredients (serves 4):

16 oz ground turkey breast

1 egg, scrambled

3 Tbsp whole wheat breadcrumbs, unflavored

1/4 tsp salt

1/8 tsp ground black pepper

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp onion powder

2 C spinach, raw

1/2 C feta cheese, crumbled


Directions:

1. Place ground meat in large mixing bowl. Add scrambled egg.

2. Add breadcrumbs, spices (salt, ground black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder). Using your hands, mix all ingredients together.

3. Add spinach and cheese and use your hands to mix ingredients well, folding the ingredients together.

4. Form four patties in the shape of a round ball and press down on each patty so it flattens slightly.

5. Grill turkey burgers for approximately 15 minutes total, flipping halfway through, until meat is cooked through and the internal temperature is at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Enjoy!


*I like to top mine with mashed avocado and sprinkled feta cheese crumbles, but it also goes well with ketchup, additional veggies such as sliced tomato and onion, or other sauces!
