Number of Servings: 4


    1 (10 ounce) package Fresh Express Baby Spinach
    1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
    1 clove garlic, crushed
    1 red onion, chopped
    2 teaspoons dried oregano, divided
    4 ounces crumbled feta
    1 1/3 pounds ground turkey breast or chicken
    1 tablespoon grill seasoning


I usually double the recipe so I have extras for lunch the next day. I love these things.


Microwave the spinach until wilted.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. To one side, add a little extra-virgin olive oil add the chopped garlic and chopped red onion and cook 5 minutes. Transfer the onions and garlic to a bowl to cool. Return pan to heat.

Wring the spinach dry by twisting it in a clean kitchen towel over your sink. Separate the spinach as you add it to the bowl with cool onions, garlic and season with 1 teaspoon of oregano. Add in feta crumbles then chicken or turkey, grill seasoning and a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil. Mix and form into 4 patties, 1-inch thick. Raise heat on pan to medium-high. Add patties and cook 6 min on each side. Makes 4 burgers

    This was awesome! But don't forget that the Nutritional Info listed does not include a bun - so make sure to account for that in your planner if you plan to serve this on a bun. - 11/30/11

    If you use reduced fat swiss they are good too. The cheese adds alot of calories and salt. The grill seasoning also adds close to 500mg of salt. I used no salt Mrs. dash. The burger without cheese is only 221 calories. - 1/10/13

    Counts would be off... comparing recipe w/ ingredients details... 1/4 lb feta is not the same as 1 cup crumbles. 1 1/3 lb turkey is not equal to 16 oz. 1 Tbsp grill seasoning is not 4 tsp, either. And 2 tsp oregano or 2 Tbsp? Anyway, the recipe still sounds good and I'll give it a try! - 5/11/09
