Easy Spinach & Feta Turkey Burgers| Quick Spinach and Feta Turkey Burgers Recipe | Spinach Feta Turkey Burgers | Turkey Burgers

Burgers are one of our spring and summertime staples, but I have to admit that we usually opt for the pre-made burgers rather than take the time to make our own. Yes, I know they are more expensive, but in this case, convenience almost always wins out over cost.

Not anymore!

Not only are these flavor-packed spinach & feta turkey burgers WAY tastier than any of the pre-made varieties, they are a snap to make! We whipped up 10 patties in just a few minutes (at a fraction of the cost of the pre-made burgers!)  To make these as part of a freezer cooking day, simply individually wrap the raw burgers in plastic wrap or parchment paper, and then into a ziploc freezer bag–no pre-cooking required! Making it ahead of time is not necessary, though, as they are equally delicious thrown straight on the grill!

 Assemble your ingredients: feta, garlic, egg, butter, breadcrumbs, spinach and ground turkey.

Here is what you need:
 
2lbs. package ground turkey (or chicken) meat
4 ounces feta crumbles
3 cloves garlic, minced
9 oz bag fresh spinach
1 large egg
3 tablespoons butter
1 1/2  cups seasoned breadcrumb
hamburger buns (for cooking day only!)
lettuce, tomato, onion, ketchup, mayo, etc. (optional; for cooking day only!)
 
 Saute the spinach with garlic and olive oil in a pan.

Step 1: Mince garlic, then melt butter in saucepan and saute spinach with garlic, until spinach is wilted and set aside to cool. Drain any liquid if necessary.

Combine the turkey, egg, breadcrumbs, spinach and feta in a bowl.

Step 2: In large bowl, mix together ground turkey, feta, egg, spinach mixture, and breadcrumb until well blended.

Form the turkey mixture into patties on parchment.

Step 3: Form turkey mixture into 10 patties place on parchment paper covered cookie sheet. Flash freeze for 20 minutes.

Flash freeze the burgers, then store them, using parchment to separate.

Step 4: Wrap each patty individually with parchment paper or saran wrap. Divide patties into two gallon size freezer bags (be sure to label bags first!)  Freeze until needed.

These moist and juicy turkey burgers cook up beautifully on the grill.

Step 5: To cook, grill frozen patties for 7-9 minutes per side until done.

Serve turkey burgers on a bun with a side of french fries!

Step 6: Serve on Hamburger buns with lettuce, tomato, onion, or any other favorite burger fixings!
