Some tips for these delicious Spinach Feta Turkey Burgers:

  • Can I use frozen spinach: Yes, I used fresh but you can use frozen. Defrost it well and squeeze out as much liquid as possible.
  • Is is necessary to grate the onions: YES, this adds a TON of moisture, and if you mince it the onions won’t break down and you’ll taste them in every bite.
  • Can I make these ahead: Yes, form the patties and freeze ahead of time if you’d like, but I’d caution to use frozen spinach if doing that.
  • You can also form these into delicious Spinach Feta Turkey Meatballs or kebabs and serve with either pasta or pilaf.

  1. I tried this recipe and followed the instructions precisely but the burgers completely fell apart while cooking. I still tried to use them as patties on a bun but they were too crumbly. They also turned out to be pretty dry even with the yogurt sauce. Not sure where I went wrong.

    My boyfriend and I made these and I was really nervous they would fall apart or be really bland. Turned out to be really great! We used a small grill that compressed them as they cooked so they didn’t fall apart.

  3. I tried these, and they were really good. They did not fall apart. They were also very moist. I used frozen spinach. I used my grill pan and let them cook about 5 minutes per side.

    I love these burgers, so much flavor! I’ve made them several times and have also adapted them into meatballs by adding an egg and either some breadcrumbs or coconut flour if I’m doing low-carb. Baked in the oven @ 400 I eat them as is or have them pasta, I’ve even thrown them into Italian egg drop soup!
