This is one of the recipes my granddaughter found while searching for some healthier alternatives to a beef burger. I switched it up a little to satisfy my hubby's taste-buds and he loved these. They've actually become one of my favorite burgers too. Of course, I love feta cheese, so maybe that has something to do with it. Haha!

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

1 lb.
ground turkey
1-2 c
baby spinach, chopped
1 Tbsp
olive oil
1 Tbsp
butter
1/2-3/4 c
red onion, diced
2 clove
garlic, minced
3 1/2 oz
feta cheese, crumbled
salt and pepper to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Sautee onion and garlic in olive oil and butter until translucent; set aside to cool.
2
Chop the spinach into one-inch pieces. (I used between 1-1 1/2 cups of it chopped, but you might like more.)
3
Place ground turkey, feta cheese and chopped spinach in a bowl; add cooled onion & garlic; mix until all ingredients are evenly distributed.
4
Divide the meat into quarters and form into ½-inch-thick patties.
5
Cook the patties over medium-high heat in a frying pan, with a little olive oil. Flip the patties every 2 to 3 minutes. You will know they are done when the juices run clear and the meat is light brown all through the center. Use a knife to cut into the centers to make sure the meat is cooked.
6
Serve on buns. Makes 4 delicious burgers!
