When I made these Greek Turkey Burgers for dinner last week, Nick took one or two bites and promptly told me he didn’t like them. I swore up and down that I had made these before and he loved them, and came here to look up the post so I could prove it to him.
And, unfortunately, it looks like he was right.
I know I have made a million and one turkey burger recipes before, but the last one that he loved turned out to be the Thai Turkey Burgers from a few months ago.
Which basically means this wasn’t his most favorite dinner ever.
But also that I hadn’t yet shared the recipe here.
And since *I* happened to really like the burgers, I’m sharing.
(For the record, his objection is the feta. No matter how much I think he should love it as much as I do, he doesn’t).
Turkey burgers are a great go-to when you’re looking to satisfy a burger craving, but you don’t quite want all the fat that a “regular” burger might deliver. And this one? Where some vegetables are snuck in? All the better.
The roasted red peppers bits really help deliver moistness, which is a key to having a flavorful turkey burger, and I promise you, you won’t even know the spinach is there if you’re anti-spinach (so, sneaky vitamins!). And the feta? Well, that just puts it over the top, in my opinion. It gives the burger that nice strong tang that helps it pack a serious flavor punch. If you don’t like feta, substitute your favorite cheese in its place.
Serve it up with a side of roasted vegetables and you have a pretty awesome, complete, healthy Greek-inspired meal that is perfect for summer time … or any time.
Although I’m currently not eating carbs, this would be amazeballs with sliced avocado, a runny egg, and a nice crusty bun.
Making my mouth water just thinking about it.
Make it, you won’t be disappointed.
*If you happen to be on TSFL, this is totally approved.
Tomorrow? A visit to the air show.

Doesn’t like feta?!? That’s okay….neither does The.Boy. But I keep shoving it down his throat in the hopes that one day he’ll learn to like it!

I really don’t care for ground turkey that much. But this recipe would be awesome with ground chicken.
Oooh, these sound so delicious. I love opting for ground turkey instead of beef but am often clueless as to what to make with it — so thank you! I’m always psyched to add more ground turkey recipes to my repertoire!

OMG, I just made these with ground lamb and it was -by far- the best burger I have ever had!!! Thanks for sharing!
