Spinach and Feta Turkey Burgers

Spinach and feta turkey burgers are a healthier alternative to traditional beef burgers, packed with flavor and nutrients. Here’s a recipe to make these delicious turkey burgers:


For the Turkey Burgers:

  • 1 pound ground turkey (lean or extra lean)
  • 1/2 cup fresh spinach, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs (use whole wheat for a healthier option)
  • 1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Olive oil or cooking spray for grilling

For Serving:

  • Whole wheat burger buns or lettuce leaves
  • Tomato slices
  • Red onion slices
  • Lettuce leaves
  • Ketchup, mustard, and other condiments of your choice


  1. Prepare the Turkey Burger Mixture:
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground turkey, finely chopped spinach, crumbled feta cheese, breadcrumbs, chopped red onion, minced garlic, dried oregano, dried basil, salt, and black pepper. Mix everything together until well combined.
  1. Shape the Burgers:
  • Divide the turkey mixture into equal portions and shape them into burger patties. You should be able to make approximately 4-6 patties, depending on the size you prefer. Make sure the patties are evenly shaped and have a thickness of about 1/2 to 3/4 inch.
  1. Preheat the Grill or Pan:
  • Preheat your grill to medium-high heat or a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. If you’re using an outdoor grill, make sure to lightly oil the grill grates to prevent sticking.
  1. Grill or Cook the Burgers:
  • Place the turkey burgers on the grill or in the skillet and cook for about 5-6 minutes on each side, or until they are cooked through and have an internal temperature of 165Β°F (74Β°C). The burgers should be golden brown on the outside and no longer pink on the inside.
  1. Assemble the Burgers:
  • If using burger buns, lightly toast them on the grill or in the oven.
  1. Serve:
  • Assemble your spinach and feta turkey burgers by placing a turkey patty on a bun or lettuce leaf. Add tomato slices, red onion slices, lettuce leaves, and your choice of condiments.
  1. Enjoy:
  • Serve the burgers hot and enjoy!
