Spinach and Feta Turkey Burgers

Happy Football Sunday!! I just love spending my Sunday afternoons in the fall watching the football games with family, firing up the grill, and enjoying some delicious grub...


These Spinach and Feta Turkey Burgers are super tasty! They are a great low-fat, low calorie alternative to your standard every-day cheeseburger... and there is nutrient-rich spinach cooked right into the patty! The feta and spinach doesn't overpower the other flavors in the turkey burger, they just add to the juiciness and overall deliciousness.


Topped with Provolone cheese and warm sauteed mushrooms, these Spinach and Feta Turkey Burgers are definitely a crowd-pleaser! 


I can also say, these Spinach and Feta Turkey Burger patties are great without a bun! The grilled patty topped with cheese and mushrooms makes a good low-carb meal option.

Spinach and Feta Turkey Burgers
with Sauteed Mushrooms and Provolone
based on a recipe from allrecipes.com
makes 4 patties

Ingredients:
4 cups spinach, chopped
1 egg, beaten
1 clove garlic, minced
2 ounces feta cheese
2 tablespoons Italian breadcrumbs
1-2 tablespoons worchestershire sauce
20 ounces (1.25 lb) ground turkey, lean
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon olive oil
8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
salt and pepper to taste
4 slices Provolone cheese
4 whole wheat buns

Directions:
Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil grate.

While grill is heating, heat a large pan over medium-high high. Spray with non-stick spray, then add spinach and cook until wilted, about 3 min. Transfer cooked spinach to a paper towel to soak up any excess moisture.


While the grill is preheating, mix together egg, garlic, feta cheese, breadcrumbs, worchestershire sauce, cooked spinach, and turkey in a large bowl. Add pepper and red pepper flakes and mix until well combined; form into 4 patties.



Cook on preheated grill until patties are no longer pink in the center, 15 to 20 minutes (turning halfway through cooking).


While burgers are on the grill, heat olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add mushrooms, salt and pepper, and sautee for about 5 min.


When patties and mushrooms are cooked, assemble patty on bun (I like mine toasted!). Place a slice of Provolone cheese and the sauteed mushrooms on top of the patty.


I added a bit of steak sauce on top of my Spinach and Feta Turkey Burger too and it was top notch!!! I will be making these again... Yum.

Enjoy!!
