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!
