Mediterranean Turkey Burgers

I’ll be honest, my kids aren’t great at eating vegetables.  We’re always trying and they’re getting better, but it’s super hard sometimes.   One time, I literally had a kid picking the peppers out of a spaghetti sauce.   You won’t believe the amount of time and energy it took for him to do that.   So I like to find ways to incorporate vegetables into foods they’d normally eat without complaint.   It doesn’t always work, but then again, sometimes it does.  And sometimes I get the third degree…what’s in this, have I had this before, did I like it…and so on and so on.

Anyways, the other day, I found a recipe for turkey burgers that incorporated spinach.  So naturally, I decided to take the idea and run with it.  And I kinda made-my-own Mediterranean turkey burger.  Of course the kids added ketchup and ate it like a regular burger, but KB and I ate it with tzatziki sauce (store-bought)…both ways were delicious!

Start by mixing your burger mix: ground turkey, Greek seasoning, frozen spinach (thawed and drained), and feta cheese.

Mix together well and form 4 patties.  Place on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.

Bake at 375 degrees for about 25 minutes (until turkey burger is cooked through).

Serve on a bun with tzatziki sauce, sliced cucumbers, red onions, and any other burger toppings desired.  Enjoy!
