If you would’ve told me a few years ago that I would eat something that included spinach, feta, and ground turkey, let alone choose to make it, I would’ve said you were crazy! My taste has certainly changed! I was looking for a healthy twist on a burger and this caught my eye. I’m so glad we tried it! Sam loved it, too. The real test was Lyla… I made her a little burger on a mini pita and she ate the whole thing! It was great with the tzatziki sauce from the chicken gyro recipe. I ate one of these burgers the next day for lunch just cut up and dipped in the sauce and it was awesome that way, too!
Mix together eggs, 2 cloves garlic, 4 ounces feta, spinach, and turkey in a bowl and form into patties (roughly 8). Cook them on a grill or griddle until no longer pink in the center, about 15-20 minutes. Serve as desired, with your choice of bun, tzatziki sauce, other condiments, and veggies.
To make Tzatziki Sauce: Shred the cucumber (can use shredder on food processor or a fine cheese grater), wrap in a towel and squeeze as much water out as possible. Mix together the greek yogurt, shredded cucumber, garlic, white wine vinegar, salt and pepper to taste, lemon juice, and EVOO. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow flavors to combine.
