Protein Packed Burger


Ingredient Checklist 

  • 1 cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed 

  • 1 pound 93% lean ground turkey 

  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese 

  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder 

  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano 

  • ¼ teaspoon salt 

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper 

  • 4 small hamburger buns, preferably whole-wheat, split 

  • 4 tablespoons tzatziki 

  • 12 slices cucumber 

  • 8 thick rings red onion (about 1/4-inch) 



Instructions Checklist 

  • Step 1 

  • Preheat grill to medium-high. Squeeze excess moisture from spinach. Combine the spinach with turkey, feta, garlic powder, oregano, salt and pepper in a medium bowl; mix well. Form into four 4-inch patties. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the patties until cooked through and no longer pink in the center, 4 to 6 minutes per side. (An instant-read thermometer inserted in the center should register 165 degrees F.) Assemble the burgers on the buns, topping each with 1 tablespoon tzatziki, 3 cucumber slices and 2 onion rings.
