Spinach and Feta Turkey Burgers


A healthy take on burger night, these spinach and feta turkey burgers are made with lean meat and loaded with flavor!

You might not know this about me but I was a Pescatarian for a number of years! When I started eating meat again, these spinach and feta turkey burgers were one of the first “meat meals” I made.

They were instantly a hit in our home so I knew I needed to share them with you as well.

These turkey burgers are fast and ridiculously easy to make. All you have to do is mix up the ingredients, form the patties and toss them on the grill. Dinner will be ready in minutes!

Are Turkey Burgers Healthier Than Beef Burgers?

Both types of meat provide a great source of protein, vitamins and minerals. Having said that, turkey is lower in saturated fat than beef – which is great for heart health!

If you are trying to lose weight, low-fat or fat-free ground turkey is a great option because it’s low in calories and high in protein. I personally love making turkey burgers because I get my burger fix without added fat and calories.  

Ingredients for spinach and feta turkey burgers measured out.

Spinach & Feta Turkey Burger Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need for these turkey burgers: 

  • ground turkey – I like using lean ground turkey, but you can use any type you prefer.
  • baby spinach – chop the spinach finely to mix into the burger.
  • crumbled feta cheese – look for finely crumbled feta cheese so the cheese will be evenly distributed throughout the burgers. 
  • egg whites – this helps bind the burgers together so they don’t fall apart on the grill!
  • fresh parsley – dried works as well, but I love the flavor that fresh herbs add.
  • garlic cloves – the perfect savory flavor accompaniment.
  • sea salt and pepper – season to taste.

How to Serve Spinach and Feta Turkey Burgers

These burgers have a hint of Mediterranean flavor which you can totally play up with the toppings — maybe a few olives and a spread of hummus? Sounds delightful to me.

They’re also delicious with traditional burger toppings – lettuce, sliced onion, ketchup and mustard.

Serve this burger on a traditional bun, use lettuce leaves as a bun or serve over greens for a burger salad. We’ve done all three countless times and they’re equally delicious!

How to Store Turkey Burgers

These turkey burgers store really well, which make them great for meal prep! After allowing the burgers to cool, store in an airtight container for up to five days in the refrigerator. For longer storage, you can also freeze them!

      Hands down the best turkey burgers I have had!! When making the burgers, the consistency was very sticky and I didn’t think I would be able to form them into a patty but I let the mixture sit for about 15 minutes and they formed into Pattie’s beautifully!!! 100% give them a try!!!

      Can these be made on a cast iron skillet or grill pan? I don’t have access to an outdoor grill. 😕
