Spinach Feta Turkey Burgers Tips
The Best Meat to use for Turkey Burgers
I prefer ground turkey breast because it is very lean. You can also use a blend of dark and white meat or all dark meat. Please note that the leaner the meat is, the faster it will cook.
The Best Spinach to use in Spinach and Feta Turkey Burgers
Fresh baby spinach is my preference because it is tender and sweet. You can use the mature, larger leaves or even frozen but we like the taste with baby spinach the best. If you use frozen, be sure to drain as much water as possible from it before adding it to the ground meat.
Freeze The Burgers
If you have leftovers, spinach and feta turkey burgers will keep in your fridge for up to three days. They can be frozen in a freezer container and thawed in the fridge overnight. Re-heat them on top of the stove on the grill.
Spinach Feta Turkey Burgers Variations
Change up these turkey burgers by adding 1/4 cup of sliced Kalamata olives or chopped sun-dried tomatoes.
- Serve spinach and feta turkey burgers on your favorite whole grain roll or bread with a dab of mustard, sliced onions, and tomatoes. Our favorite breads are sourdough rolls or sourdough or whole grain bread.
