Here’s a great summer meal that is tasty, quick, easy, healthy and affordable – what could be better? You can use either ground turkey or chicken. We’ve tried this with both and they are equally delicious. Here’s what you’ll need (this recipe yields 4 servings):
- About 1.25 lbs ground chicken or turkey
- 1 red onion
- 3 cloves fresh garlic
- 1/4 pound feta crumbles
- About 1 and a half cups frozen (defrosted) spinach
- grill seasoning (for poultry)
- salt, pepper
- dried oregano
- 1 tomato, sliced
- Buns, and burger fixings
Dice one-half of the red onion and sauté in a pan with salt and pepper on medium in olive oil (about 5 minutes). Add the three cloves of garlic, crushed or minced. In a large bowl, mix the defrosted spinach with the feta crumbles. Add in the browned onion and garlic, mix well and let cool a couple minutes. Add in a teaspoon of oregano, and a teaspoon of grill seasoning. Add ground meat and mix together with your hands. Form into four patties.
Grill on medium (you can use a gas or charcoal grill or the stovetop) for about 6 minutes a side, or until thoroughly cooked. Toast your burger buns, and build the burgers with fresh sliced tomatoes, lettuce, mayonnaise, and anything else you think would be tasty. A side of salad or fries makes a great accompaniment.
