Description

These burgers are made with lean turkey, frozen chopped spinach, and crumbled feta. They are so flavorful and healthy!

Ingredients

  • 1 whole English Cucumber
  • 17 ounces, weight Fat Free Plain Greek Yogurt (I Used A 17 Ounce Container Of Fage)
  • ½ teaspoons Lemon Zest
  • ½  Lemon, Juiced
  • 1 clove Garlic, Chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon Chopped Fresh Mint
  • ¼ cups Chopped Fresh Dill
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 1 pound Ground Turkey
  • 1 whole Egg White
  • 10 ounces, weight Frozen, Chopped Spinach, Defrosted And Drained Well
  • 4 ounces, weight Crumbled Feta
  • 1 dash Oregano
  • ¼ cups Panko Or Breadcrumbs
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 5 whole Hamburger Buns

Preparation

Preheat the grill to medium heat.

Cut the cucumber in half down the center and scoop out the soft inside section with a spoon. Discard the insides. Grate the rest of the cucumber using a box grater and place in a strainer. Sprinkle with salt, set the strainer in the sink and allow it to drain for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally and pressing out the liquid.

In a medium bowl combine the yogurt, lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic, mint, and dill. Add the grated cucumber and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper.

In a large bowl combine the ground turkey, egg white, spinach (broken up into small pieces), feta, oregano, and breadcrumbs. Season with salt and pepper. Form the turkey mixture into four to five patties and place on a plate coated with cooking spray. Spray the tops of the burgers.

Grill the burgers until cooked throughout, about 8-10 minutes on each side. Serve on a bun with a topping of tzatziki sauce.
