Turkey or Chicken Spanakopita Burgers

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.
